With this week's release of "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," moviegoers will be able to see one of the final film performances of the late-great Robin Williams, who tragically died this past August. However, for fans who want to hear a sample of the comedian's final voice role as Simon Pegg's pet dog, "Dennis," in the upcoming sci-fi comedy "Absolutely Anything," an early sneak clip from the film has been released (via deadline.com).

The offbeat film, directed by "Monty Python" comedian Terry Jones, centers on a schoolteacher (Pegg) who comes across some very special powers -- powers that can make all his wishes come true, which includes supplying a human voice to his pet dog, who, in return, helps him land his dream girl.

Also co-starring in the film are Kate Beckinsale, Eddie Izzard, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Meera Syal, and Joanna Lumely, along with the voices of original Monty Python members, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, and Eric Idle. "Absolutely Anything" will premiere in the UK sometime next spring, with a US release date soon to follow.

Neil Clarke, a schoolteacher, suddenly discovers he has magical powers. In fact, with the wave of his hand, he can make absolutely anything happen. From wiping out a particularly disruptive class (and then bringing them - and anyone else who has ever died! - back to life), to turning his best mate into the kind of man women would not only die for, but would worship to the ends of the earth and back. The only snag is getting the words right and of course, knowing what he really wants. 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...?
