Behind The Candelabra

HBO has finally released a full trailer for the Liberace biopic BEHIND THE CANDELABRA and it shows a lot more than the teaser trailer from last month. The television film comes from director Steven Soderbergh and it could be the last film we see from him for a while if he does retire or at least goes on a sabbatical. The film stars Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as the world-renowned performer's chauffeur and alleged live in lover Scott Thorson. BEHIND THE CANDELABRA is based on the autobiographical book by Thorson and is about his relationship with Liberace.

Check out the trailer and Rob Lowe's fantastic hair:

The trailer starts off a little slow but by the end I was sold. I don't know if it is CGI or good ol' fashioned make-up but it looks like someone took 20 years off of Michael Douglas' face in a couple of the shots. Steven Soderbergh is a unique director who sometimes seems to tackle a project "just because" (A film about male strippers? I'm your man! You think BEHIND THE CANDELABRA is too gay? Screw you, HBO will do it!) and if he does step away from theatrical releases I for one will be sad. But if Steven Soderbergh does quit it looks like BEHIND THE CANDELABRA could be a fantastic new beginning for his smaller projects.

BEHIND THE CANDELABRA stars Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Rob Lowe, Dan Aykroyd, and Debbie Reynolds, and will air on HBO on Math 26th, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: I remember the "it's too gay" argument was used for I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS as well. So what is the acceptable level of gayness in a film and does Hollywood have a chart with all the different levels?

This almost makes me wish I had HBO

This looks really good. Michael Douglas and Matt Damon have always brought their A-game to every role, and this sounds like an intriguing story. I'll have to figure out a way to see this.

Liberace Who?

Seriously, does anyone under the age of 35 even know who Liberace is, let alone care to see a movie about his life? Seems like Michael Douglas & Matt Damon could find other projects to better serve their time.

Sometimes you don't care about something or someone until you learn about them.

This is the dumbest shit I've ever read, I might actually be dumber now that I read that than 10 seconds ago.

So we should all only watch/read things we have prior interest in? How the hell do you enjoy anything new that way?

Rob Lowe's hair is incredible.

Funny that studios turned down the movie for being too gay, considering very conservatives folks would partially like to blame liberal Hollywood for making gay acceptable, yet apparently Hollywood does have a gay limit.
