Watch Robin Williams in the Heartbreaking 'Boulevard' Trailer, His Final Onscreen Role

19 June 2015 2:55 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's jarring to see Robin Williams in a movie trailer, so long after the actor's August 2014 death. And he's front and center in the new promo for "Boulevard," his final onscreen film role (he also voices a dog in the comedy "Absolutely Anything," out later this summer), spouting the sort of lines that are imbued with new meaning in the wake of his passing.

Williams plays Nolan, a 60-year-old closeted man stuck in a marriage he doesn't want, working a dead-end bank job for more than 25 years, and wondering how his life got so far from happy.

"Nothing turned out the way I thought, I guess," he says.

One night on the way home from work, Nolan takes a sudden detour down an unfamiliar road, and ends up picking up Leo (newcomer Roberto Aguire), a young hooker who Nolan pays for companionship rather than sex. He's drawn into Leo's life, »

Boulevard (2015) Movie Trailer: Robin Williams’ Last Role

18 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Boulevard Trailer. Dito Montiel‘s Boulevard (2014) movie trailer stars Robin WilliamsBob OdenkirkKathy Baker, and Giles MattheyBoulevard‘s plot synopsis: “A devoted husband in a marriage of convenience is forced to confront his secret life.”

Boy, oh boy. It’s hard to make a trailer for this film without it feeling off. Robin Williams hanged himself and slit his wrists. That’s dark. There’s nothing inspiring or positive or hopeful about any of that. We’re told to celebrate his life, and we sure do. We love his films, and we miss his personality.

Robin Williams has always been his best in dramatic performances. I truly believe that. I know he’s a funny-man, a comedian to most, and probably best known as Ms. Doubtfire. But even in that movie, you can see the emotional intellect behind his face. He was a highly intelligent man, and impossible talented. »

Robin Williams is a 60-year-old man who is forced to confront his secret life in the first trailer for “Boulevard,” which will showcase the late actor’s final dramatic performance.

Watch: Robin Williams in Trailer for ‘Boulevard,’ His Final On-Screen Role

18 June 2015 7:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The first trailer for “Boulevard,” Robin Williams’ final onscreen performance (he voices a character in the upcoming film “Absolutely Anything”), spotlights the late actor’s dramatic range.

The movie follows a 60-year-old married man (Williams) who’s stuck in a dead-end job as a bank manager. The character is in denial about his sexuality until he befriends a young gay street hustler (Roberto Aguire).

Our critic Peter Debruge wrote in his review that the film tapped into the same loneliness felt in Williams’ “One Hour Photo” and “Good Will Hunting.”

Directed by Dito Montiel (“The Guide to Recognizing Your Saints”), the film also stars Bob Odenkirk and Kathy Baker.

Boulevard” premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and hits theaters on July 10.

First trailer for Boulevard starring the late Robin Williams

18 June 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer for drama Boulevard – starring the late Robin Williams in his final live-action performance – has appeared online today, and you can view it below…

It is coming up on a year since Williams passed away in August 2014, and Boulevard marks the final time we will see the gifted actor and comedian on the big screen (his final role, in Terry Jones’ upcoming Absolutely Anything, only features voice work by the actor).

In Boulevard, Williams displays his knack for dramatic acting once again as a bank manager who is in some denial about his sexuality, despite being married. He soon falls into a relationship with a young hustler and his life begins to change.

Directed by Dito Montiel (The Guide To Recognizing Your Saints), Boulevard co-stars Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Kathy Baker (Saving Mr. Banks) and Giles Matthey (24: Live Another Day) and opens in limited Us cinemas on July 10th. »

The dramatic comedy co-stars Best Actress nominee Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Josh Hutcherson, and Mia Wasikowska. This was Ruffalo's first Academy Award nomination.

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1988

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Our look at underappreciated films of the 80s continues, as we head back to 1988...

Either in terms of ticket sales or critical acclaim, 1988 was dominated by the likes of Rain Man, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Coming To America. It was the year Bruce Willis made the jump from TV to action star with Die Hard, and became a star in the process.

It was the year Leslie Nielsen made his own jump from the small to silver screen with Police Squad spin-off The Naked Gun, which sparked a hugely popular franchise of its own. Elsewhere, the eccentric Tim Burton scored one of the biggest hits of the year with Beetlejuice, the success of which would result in the birth of Batman a year later. And then there was Tom Cruise, who managed to make a drama about a student-turned-barman into a $170m hit, back when $170m was still an »

Furious 7″ still has plenty of gas in the tank, as the tentpole’s poised to win its fourth straight weekend at the U.S. box office with about $16 million, according to early Friday estimates.

Lionsgate’s launch of “The Age of Adaline” and Sony’s second weekend of “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2″ will battle for second place in the $13 million to $14 million range.

Furious 7,”  starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and the late Paul Walker, crossed the $300 million mark in domestic grosses on Wednesday and became the 50th title to hit that milestone. »

Film Review: Intoxicating ‘The Age of Adaline’ a Featherweight Fantasy

24 April 2015 4:35 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “The Age of Adaline” is a beautifully shot featherweight fantasy that remains charming as long as you don’t think about it too hard, or at all.  At one point one character asks another why he loves Adaline, and he replies “because she makes no sense.” The same could be said for this movie.

It doesn’t make a lick of sense but I enjoyed it and it’s intoxicating in its own way. It goes down easy like a good “Manhattan” or some other vintage cordial of the era.  

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Blake Lively stars as Adaline, a pretty young woman who has a Zelig-like quality of being involved in just about every major event to happen in San Francisco in the first half of the 20th century. She’s born just after the great earthquake after all, on new years eve and gets herself into the movies when Thomas Edison »

The Age Of Adaline – The review

23 April 2015 4:12 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

What would you do if life stood still? Now I’m not talking about the world continually frozen, like a projector stuck on one frame of film (maybe a better modern analogy would be a DVD unable to move past an image, perhaps with that annoying “buffer circle” spinning). I mean what if you, yourself, never changed and remained your current age forever. No wrinkles, no grey hairs, and no internal breakdowns (the plumbing works fine, muscles and joints in great shape). That’s been one of the major benefits of vampirism (like the eternal ten-year old Kirsten Dunst in Interview With The Vampire), a theme of fairy tales (Sleeping Beauty), and science fiction (The Man Who Cheated Death, the Cocoon flicks). Now comes a film that plays with that notion in a more modern, realistic fashion. Call it a modern romantic fable, or the ultimate May-December love story. Or »
