What would you do if you had 90 minutes to live? That is the question posed to Robin Williams’ character in the upcoming movie “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.” Williams plays that angriest man and upon learning that he has such a short time left, he does what most of us would do – he attempts to square himself with those he loves. The catch is that while he is sick, he isn’t going to die in 90 minutes. Yeah, that’s just what his doctor (played by Mila Kunis) tells him when he presses her for a definitive length of time. Watching the trailer for the film, the results, as awful as the falsehood may be, appear like they could be relatively funny. Particularly enjoyable is Williams’ voiceover at the opening. The cast also includes Melissa Leo, Hamish Linklater, Richard Kind, and Peter Dinklage. It is worth noting that Linklater is »

Despite a juicy role as Dwight D. Eisenhower in Lee Daniels’ The Butler last summer, Robin Williams has been largely absent from the spotlight for a few years. That’s all about to change though with his new film Boulevard hitting Tribeca this month and the first trailer for another Williams project, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, arriving on the web today.
Williams stars as Henry Altmann, the titular character, who is wrongfully told by a doctor (Mila Kunis) that he’s managed to frustrate through constant yelling and needling that he has a brain aneurysm that will kill him within an hour and a half. Shocked out of the bitterness that has consumed him for much of his adult life, Henry begins a race against time through New York City to make amends with all the loved ones he has driven away, including his brother, wife and estranged son. »

There's ticking clock movies and then there's Robin Williams being given 90 minutes to live and running around Brooklyn like a maniac. Hilarious?

A belated festival premiere for Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” and a powerhouse showing for British filmmakers including Mike Leigh and Ken Loach — plus appearances by other usual suspects such as David Cronenberg, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Nuri Bilge Ceylan and the Dardenne brothers — are among the strong possibilities hovering over the lineup of the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival.
In recent years, festival topper Thierry Fremaux and his selection committee have tended to push their final decisions to the very last minute under a nearly impenetrable veil of secrecy, defying the intense media scrutiny and endless speculation that always swirl around the Cannes lineup at this time of year. Although anything could change between now and April 17, when the official selection is unveiled — there are still enough hotly anticipated titles in the mix to warrant some educated guesswork about what is shaping up to be a promisingly diverse slate of auteurs. »

In the vein of the original series, Himyd tells the story from a female point of view, that of Sally (Greta Gerwig), and revolves around a new group of friends in New York.

The prospect of returning to series television was intimidating at first, Robin Williams said Wednesday night at TCA. The star of CBS’ The Crazy Ones said the worst part was “the pressure of it being A Robin Williams Vehicle”. Now the series is more of an ensemble, and “that’s the great joy for me – the pressure is off. It’s really become something I enjoy,” he said, adding that he no longer is nagged by the pressure of ” ‘You’re back on TV. After 32 years.’ The ensemble is so good, and we’re growing,” he said, speaking glowingly of the “steady gig like this with a great group of people.” Williams headlines the David E. Kelly comedy as Simon Roberts, head of a Chicago ad agency, whose daughter, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, is a business partner. Cast member, Hamish Linklater said the two of them assume most of the load on the show, »

The Crazy Ones is one of the funniest freshman comedies, and we were invited to the set of the show for a lively Q&A with the cast, including Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar, plus executive producer David E. Kelley. They revealed lots of juicy details about what's coming up in future episodes, like returning guest stars, how a relationship between Sydney (Gellar) and Andrew (Hamish Linklater) has been in the works since the beginning, and more from Chicago's funniest ad agency. Andrew and Sydney will continue to be a thing! The kernels of Sydney and Andrew being together are not going away anytime soon, and that's been in the works since the inception of the series. "We knew immediately that we wanted to do a romance," executive producer Jon Kinnally said, "and we thought Sydney and Andrew together would make a really fun romance." They also added that originally, »

Woody Allen may have already wrapped his latest film Magic in The Moonlight, but that doesn't mean the persnickety director will give up the goods when it comes to what the movie is all about. Nonetheless, with word that Sony Pictures Classics will be distributing the film, Allen has decided to drop a few details. The La Times reports Allen has confessed, "It's a romantic comedy set in the South of France in the 1920s." Via press release Sony added that Magic in The Moonlight is "against a backdrop of wealthy mansions, the Côte d.Azur, jazz joints and fashionable spots for the wealthy of the Jazz Age." It seems Midnight in Paris didn't tap out Allen's interest in love circa 1920s France. Like many of Allen's works, Magic in The Moonlight boasts a star-stuffed ensemble. Colin Firth, Emma Stone, Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney »
The film marks the seventh collaboration with the filmmaker and Sony Classics.
