WATCH: The powerful, yet heartbreaking trailer for HBO’s Robin Williams documentary

“You’re only given a little spark of madness, and if you lose that, you’re nothing.”

The first official trailer for the Robin Williams documentary has been released and I suggest you grab a box of tissues.

It’s been almost four years since the much-loved actor passed away suddenly and it still feels surreal to many.


The jovial comedian brought so much joy to the lives of people all around the world with his performances both on and off the screen, which is why HBO have packaged up those moments, and so many more for us all to enjoy in Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind.

The documentary features never before seen footage of Williams throughout his life and career, along with interviews with close friends including fellow comedian Steve Martin, Billy Crystal, Eric Idle, Whoopi Goldberg and David Letterman.

Williams’ son Zak also features in the film.

“My father didn’t always feel like he was succeeding, but he was the most successful person I know,” Zak Williams says in the clip.

The documentary, directed by Marina Zenovich, is set to premiere on HBO on 16 July.
