Though not his final role, the late and great Robin Williams has a heap of familial drama to deal with in his latest film, A Merry Friggin’ Christmas. Mostly thanks to his ungrateful son and a holiday road trip gone very, very awry. As in, they almost kill Santa (sorta).
But don’t just take our word for it — here’s the film’s brand new trailer:
Joel McHale stars as Boyd, a dad and husband who isn’t all that keen on his own family, seemingly in perma-head-butting mode when it comes to his father, (played by Williams). Starring alongside Williams and McHale are Lauren Graham, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Clark Duke, Oliver Platt, and Candice Bergen. The film is slated to be released on November 7th — just in time for you to start getting your holiday groove on.
As for what’s left for Williams — who tragically passed away in August — the actor completed several films that are slated for the next few months, including December 19th A Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb sequel and Absolutely Anything, a film co-starring Kate Beckinsale, Simon Pegg, Terry Gilliam, Rob Riggle, Joanna Lumley, John Cleese, Eddie Izzard, and Eric Idle. (So basically: a thing that we are very excited to see.) Williams plays a dog named Dennis in the film (Well, OK he’s the voice of the dog, but still). Absolutely Anything is slated to arrive in theaters in February.
