July 4, 2015: Independence Day (U. S. A.)
July 10, 2015: Boulevard is released in strictly limited cities and countries. Sadly, it will only be available on region 2 dvd’s only.
July 21, 2015: Robin Williams’s birthday (Join us as we celebrate what would have been Robin’s 64th birthday.)
July 30, 2015: Robin’s daughter Zelda turns 26.
Check out the new trailer for one of Robin’s final movies and his last drama.
Whether or not it’s any good, Boulevard is sure to attract at least some attention because:

- That man is played by Robin Williams.
Plus, the film also features Bob Odenkirk in a supporting roll, so there’s that.
Boulevard gets a limited release on July 10.
Robin Williams has a couple more movies that are supposed to come out next month. Sadly, they are both limited releases. In Boulevard, he plays a gay man who has to come to terms with his homosexuality. In Absolutely Anything, he is the voice of Dennis the dog. I read his performance in Boulevard is one of his best performances of his career. It’s so sad there will be no more of his movies coming out after these two.
