HBO has debuted an official trailer for Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind, made by doc filmmaker Marina Zenovich (of Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic, Water & Power: A California Heist). In addition to insight from old recordings of the man himself, celebrity friends lend their expertise into Williams such as Billy Crystal, Eric Idle, Whoopi Goldberg, David Letterman, Steve Martin, Pam Dawber and his son, Zak Williams. On August 11th of that year news emerged that beloved comedian and actor Robin Williams had taken his own life.

"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. This doc originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. It also has tons of archival footage that covers his entire life and career.

"You're only given a little spark of madness and if you lose that, you're nothing", the late Williams says in the first trailer. Martin then acknowledges that Williams, on stage, was "a master", but "off stage, it felt like he was holding himself together". "It's time to enter the human mind", says a sombre Williams, as if leading you through a dark tunnel. "My father didn't always feel he was succeeding". In May, a biography of the actor titled Robin, written by Dave Itzkoff claimed that Williams suffered from Lewy body dementia, which drove him to despair and ultimately, suicide.
