Lionsgate's fast-paced trailer for "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn' is more than just riveting -- it's downright uncomfortable. The uncomfortable quality, however, makes the film seem promising, at least in terms of Robin Williams' performance and the editing.

Williams stars as Henry Altmann, a bitter man who loathes everyone and everything. While driving through an intersection, his car gets t-boned by a taxi. Following the accident, Altmann goes to see Dr. Sharon Gill, who is played by Mila Kunis. When Dr. Gill tells Altmann that he has a brain aneurysm, he becomes angry, demanding that she tell him how long he has to live. In an act of desperation, Gill makes up a number, telling Altmann he has only 90 minutes to live. This puts Altmann on to a frenzied journey to reconcile with his loved ones who he has hurt countless time over the years. Peter Dinklage and Melissa Leo co-star as Altmann's brother and wife, respectively.

"The Angriest Man in Brooklyn" marks Williams return to the big screen in a starring role since "World's Greatest Dad" in 2009. Although Williams has appeared in many films between 2010 and 2014, most of the roles have been supporting or part of a larger ensemble. It opens theatrically and on VOD May 23.
