Fans of the late Robin Williams can watch the actor in one of his final performances later this year.

A Merry Friggin’ Christmas sees the comedian take on the role of Mitch, an acerbic-tongued father who doesn't get on with his son.

A trailer for the film has been released and shows the actor on fine form.

“Look at this pile of c**p. This country’s so damn expensive, it makes me want to puke,” Williams says near the start of the two-minute trailer.

Williams stars alongside Lauren Graham, Oliver Platt, Clarke Duke and Joel McHale, who plays his equally bad-tempered son Boyd.

The film follows Mitch and Boyd as they embark a road trip to Chicago to retrieve Christmas presents after Boyd forgets to bring them to a family get together.

Naturally, chaos and hilarity ensues, with the pair knocking over a man dressed as Santa Claus and driving along with a mobile toilet on the back of their car. 

The 63-year-old actor died in back August and this comedy is one of his final films.

He also completed work on Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, Boulevard and Absolutely Anything before his death.

 

A Merry Friggin’ Christmas will be released in cinemas and on-demand services on 7 November.
