Robin Williams Getting Treatment for His alcohol Abuse

2 July 2014 1:50 AM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Robin Williams, the Oscar-winning actor, who has been frank about his battles with alcohol and substance abuse, has checked into a facility in his ongoing quest to maintain his sobriety.

"After working back-to-back projects, Robin is simply taking the opportunity to fine-tune and focus on his continued commitment, of which he remains extremely proud," Williams' rep tells E! News.

"This was totally planned and scheduled," a source tells us. "He's been working for about 18 months straight. He had some time off so is using it to do a check-in."

The 62-year-old funnyman most recently appeared on the big screen in the indie flick The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, costarring Mila Kunis, and he'll be reprising the role of Teddy Roosevelt in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, the third movie in the hit comedy franchise.

30 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Robin Williams, who has had an ongoing struggle with substance abuse, has reportedly checked himself into a rehab facility to avoid falling off the wagon.

Robin Williams Back In Rehab

Williams is currently in rehab at the Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center near Lindstrom, Minn., reported TMZ. He’s reportedly receiving treatment to maintain long-term sobriety at the section of the center called The Lodge.

Williams will remain at Hazelden for several weeks.

Robin Williams and Mila Kunis in The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

Robin Williams (Old Dogs) has a bad day—a helluva bad day—in the comedy drama The Angriest Man In Brooklyn.

Williams plays overly bitter man Henry Altmann, whose anger really kicks into gear when he learns from a doctor (Mila Kunis, Ted) that he has a brain aneurysm and has only 90 minutes to live. This news kicks the curmudgeonly Altman into motion, and he sets out to reconcile with his wife, brother and friends in the short time he believes he has left.

Co-starring Peter Dinklage (TV’s Game of Thrones) and Melissa Leo (Flight) and directed by Phil Alden Robinson (who hasn’t helmed a film since 2002’s The Sum of All Fears), the R-rated Angriest Man In Brooklyn opened to lot of negative reviews upon it limited theatrical rollout in May. »

‘The Angriest Man in Brooklyn’ Review

5 June 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, Peter Dinklage, James Earl Jones, Melissa Leo, Hamish Linklater, Richard Kind, Isiah Whitlock Jr. | Written by Daniel Taplitz, Assi Dayan | Directed by Phil Alden Robinson

A great deal can change in twelve years. Societal shifts adjust the mindset we have when consuming all aspects of entertainment. Certain approaches that previously worked will grow tired and played out. With that in mind director Phil Alden Robinson had a challenge in front of him as he is directing his first film since Sum of All Fears in 2002.

Perhaps the twelve year gap was too much of a hurdle to leap, because The Angriest Man in Brooklyn  is nowhere near the quality of what you would expect from the guy who gave us wonderful films like Field of Dreams and Sneakers. Nearly every part is miscast causing each actor to be constantly at odds with their roles. Tonally »

Prognosis Negative: Robinson’s Return a Detached, Tepid Exercise

His first outing since the ill-fated 2002 film The Sum of All Fears, director Phil Alden Robinson’s latest, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, is a remake of a 1997 Israeli film, The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum, which happened to be part of a trilogy directed by Assi Dayan. At first appearing to be a black comedy about miserable, self-pitying human beings, a not-so-subtle message about the importance of family, enjoying one’s time and appreciating the preciousness of life, eventually cascades over the slim narrative, rendering any emotional or comedic potency to absolute zero. With a running time of about 80 minutes, this treatment still feels padded with moments that feel utterly useless because they’re not fully developed or simply used as a matter of convenience.

The Angriest Man In Brooklyn Hits July 22nd

3 June 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Remaining largely under the radar despite some big names, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is hitting shelves on July 22nd. Running with a gimmick-focused plot, the film features Robin Williams as an extremely angry, unhappy man who suddenly believes he only has 90 minutes to live. That will change your perspective on things, and he tears around New York trying to manage some closure, while the doctor (Mila Kunis) who gave him the false news in retaliation to his hateful demeanor tries to track him down.

Though a film that did not win over a lot of critics, potential viewers may want to take that with a grain salt. It’s just not that sort of movie. It celebrates obnoxious, self-centered, cranky behavior in an effort to speak through hyperbole, and that’s not the kind of effort that is aimed at a wide demographic.

Keep this one on your radar though, »

Film Review: ‘The Angriest Man in Brooklyn’

30 May 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s movie night, and you can choose between crazy-shouty Robin Williams (think “The Fisher King”) and blubbering feel-good Robin Williams (like the one who discovers his son, dead from autoerotic asphyxiation, in “World’s Greatest Dad”). Which would you prefer? Trick question! In “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn,” you can have it both ways, as Williams plays the human equivalent of a bulging forehead vein who learns he has 90 minutes to live and spends the rest of the movie making amends, like Ebenezer Scrooge at the end of “A Christmas Carol.” Most auds will prefer have no Robin Williams at all.

Inspired by the 1997 Israeli movie “The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum,” in which actor-director Assi Dayan tried to imagine how the worst possible news could possibly bring out the best in someone, this schmaltzy remake from “Field of Dreams” helmer Phil Alden Robinson (directing his first film since 2002′s »
