Watch the United Kingdom trailer above.

The science-fiction comedy Absolutely Anything is notable not only for starring Williams, who voices a horny (!) talking (!) dog (!) named Dennis, but also for being the first film to feature all living Monty Python members since 1983's Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. Deadline reports Atlas Distribution Co., a boutique distributor best known for (gulp) the Atlas Shrugged movies, will release Absolutely Anything in USA theaters on May 12.

(He recorded his dialogue a mere three weeks before his death in 2014).

Almost three years after the tragic death of actor/comedian Robin Williams, audiences in the United States will finally have the chance to see his final film performance. Jones, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, and John Cleese all provided voices of aliens in the movie, but Jones has just come forward and announced he has dementia, so it doesn't seem probable that he'll return to filmmaking again.

Absolutely Anything is the last of three of Williams' films to be released posthumously, following A Merry Friggin' Christmas in November 2014, and Night at the Museum 3, released the following month.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news about Absolutely Anything.

Monty Python veteran Terry Jones directed and co-wrote the movie from a script he wrote alongside Gavin Scott 20 years earlier. Mishap after mishap finally leads him to the ultimate conundrum that all men dread and at which many have failed: Should he choose the girl... or the dog?
