News of Robin Williams’ death has reverberated around the world, shocking millions who grew up on many of his films and comedy.

The 63-year-old actor died on Monday at his home near San Francisco, where he was discovered hanging by a belt. He had been suffering severe depression and checked himself into rehab in June.

For fans, he leaves behind four films that have yet to hit theatres: Night of the Museum – Secret of the TombBoulevardMerry Friggin’ Christmas, and Absolutely Anything. There were discussions to proceed with a sequel to the 1993 film Mrs. Doubtfire, but plans for that film will likely be canceled.
