Trailer Debuts For HBO's Robin Williams Documentary

‘Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind’ HBO Documentary – First Trailer Out

Williams committed suicide in 2014. It also has tons of archival footage that covers his entire life and career.

We were lucky enough to catch the film at Sundance, and in my review, I noted that while the insights from Robin Williams' own family are limited to only his first wife Valerie Velardi and his son Zachary Williams, much of the documentary's most valuable details come from Williams himself.

"The genius of Robin Williams lay in his ability to make a room, a comedy club, a concert hall or the whole world laugh", HBO says of the documentary in a press release.

The clip also sees Williams addressing his fear of abandonment that stemmed from his childhood, and includes a discussion of his drug use and voicemails he left for friends, including Crystal.

The film, directed by Marina Zenovich, premieres July 16 on HBO. Martin then acknowledges that Williams, on stage, was "a master", but "off stage, it felt like he was holding himself together". "But he was the most successful person I know". "Stand-up is survival", he explains.

Come Inside My Mind explores the comedian's extraordinary life and career, revealing what drove him to give voice to the characters in his mind. It is supplemented by interviews with Billy Crystal, Eric Idle, Whoopi Goldberg, David Letterman, Steve Martin, Pam Dawber, Zak Williams and many others.

A look at the life of the late and great comedian, the documentary delves into Robin Williams's private struggles.
