Get the tissues ready, because on July 16, you'll be bawling your eyes out. 

 

HBO dropped the first trailer for their documentary, Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind, and it's heartbreaking, to say the least. 

 

The film, which first premiered at Sundance, features rare footage of the late actor, including scenes from his standup appearances, and interviews with his family and friends.

You're only given a little spark of madness and if you lose that, you're nothing.

"He was really comfortable onstage," Steve Martin says in the trailer. "Offstage, I just felt he was holding himself together."

 

Williams died from suicide in 2014. He was 63.

 

The comedy icon's son Zak also speaks and opens up about his famous father's insecurities, saying, "My father didn't always feel like he was succeeding. But he was the most successful person I know."

 

HBO's Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind airs on July 16th.
