Actor Val Kilmer is giving us an intimate look into his life in his upcoming documentary, Val.

The film explores the life of the Top Gun actor as he recovers from cancer. The actor was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2015 and underwent a tracheotomy shortly after that altered his ability to speak.

Kilmer shared the trailer on Twitter, writing: “It feels like yesterday and yet it has been a lifetime. As I write this, my documentary is getting ready to premiere at Festival De Cannes. And as grateful as I am for being selected with this high honour, I look forward most to sharing my life’s story with all of you.

“As a lifelong filmmaker it thrills me to say the film will be in theatres July 23. And as a person who also enjoys getting cosy, I’m possibly more happy that it will be on @PrimeVideo Aug 6. Here’s to giving every day the opportunity to be the most beautiful of your life.”

The documentary will feature over 40 years worth of videos shot by Kilmer while at home and on the set of some of his most iconic films.


Val is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video from August 6.
