Robin Williams in The Angriest Man in Brooklyn trailer

New Yorkers aren’t exactly known for our sunny, upbeat demeanor. But even by the city’s surly standards, the character Robin Williams plays in his next movie has an attitude problem. He’s such an obnoxious jerk, in fact, that in the first Angriest Man in Brooklyn trailer, he causes his doctor (played by Mila Kunis) to snap and tell him he has 90 minutes left to live.

What ensues is a mad-dash scramble to try and set things right before time is up. Williams’ Henry attempts to quickly mend his relationships with his wife (Melissa Leo), his brother (Peter Dinklage), his son (Hamish Linklater), his friends… it turns out pretty much everyone who’s met him has reason to be unhappy with him. Watch the first Angriest Man in Brooklyn trailer after the jump.
