LOS ANGELES – Robin Williams’ death from an apparent suicide Monday left us with a canon of great films from decades past. But Williams, who was prolific even at this stage of his career, also left behind a number of films that will roll out to theaters in the months ahead.

Here’s a breakdown of work he had already shot, what it’s about and when you’re likely to see it — as well as a few films that had a niche release in the past few months and are still available on various platforms. As with much of Williams’ latter-career work, drama and a low-key melancholy hovered over these roles — with  one high-profile exception.

“Absolutely Anything” [Seeking U.S. distribution]

“Merry Friggin’ Christmas” [Seeking U.S. distribution]

“The Angriest Man in Brooklyn” [Came out May 23 from Lionsgate]

“The Face of Love” [Came out March 7 from IFC]

“Boulevard” [Several fest plays; seeking U.S. distribution]

“Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” [Out from Fox Dec. 19.]
