Cannes premiere for Liberace film?
  • In an interview with Le Monde Steven Soderbergh hints that Behind the Candelabra will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next year and praises the performances of Michael Douglas and Matt (translated version).

    I presume Behind The Candelabra is also a very American movie?
    Yes, probably. We just finished the fourth week of filming and there are three left. It's pretty weird. Michael Douglas (who plays the piano) and Matt Damon are fantastic. I can not wait to see how people react.

    Do you have a release date?
    This is an HBO movie. The premiere should be in France next May. It will then be released in theaters around the world and on HBO in the United States.

    So this movie will only been seen on cable TV in the US...yet in theatres all around the world? Does anyone know why the release is only on TV in US? Thanks!

    Because HBO bankrolled it and they want to use it as a draw to get new subscribers?

    Because no movie studio would put up the $6 million to bankroll the film as they were scared of the subject matter.

    It seems so strange to me that Matt has managed to keep his family and himself almost entirely out of the tabloids while he's in LA. The only shots we've seen were during filming except for a couple when they first arrived. Can it really be done so easily if a person is determined or is he just keeping an incredibly low profile?

    Re: photos?

    I'm always amazed how good he is at this. And the paps know where hes staying at but they are not stalking him which is good. And it does help i think that lucy is not a celebrity as matt has said. Everything they are doing they are not doing in the public eye.

    Wonder if his family is going with him to palm springs and las Vegas.

    And it's not just a lack of photos, there's almost no sightings as well (probably the LA factor in locals not caring about celeb sightings).

    Palm Springs next week, then Vegas the following week and the film is done.

    Matt appears to now be in Boston - two twitpics today at the airport.

    Re: Boston?

    Zimbio has pics of him at lax earlier. Another website is stating there was no sign of Lucy or the girls but Lucy is in the background of one of the twitpics. Don't know about the girls.

    Someone had tweeted earlier that they were going to meet Matt Saturday and their location was Boston and apparently they work at a golf course. Maybe a charity thing?

    Funny how we were talking about not seeing him and then these pics come out. Maybe we'll get more pics out of Boston.

    Re: Boston

    Photos of Matt solo in LA and arriving with family in Boston (Lucy and all four girls):



    It's not the Sean McDonough event, but a charity golf event is a definite possibility (as is a family get-together prior to Gia's birthday).

    Bourne false advertising

    Is there really a tv ad claiming Bourne Legacy is the best of the series with presumably a pull-quote? No words. People are so easily fooled (judging by the reactions on Twitter).

    Re: Bourne false advertising

    Sigh....if that is true I haven't seen it. I feel like I can't properly say the movie stunk since I haven't seen it and dont plan to but going by the previews and plot line I strongly disagree. Whatever makes the studio feel better I guess.

    That is definitely Lucy in zacharys pic. The other pic there is a woman standing behind in the distance that I thought could be her too but it looks like there is someone else standing behind Matt with dark hair but all you see is part of her head.

    Matt and Ben

    Everytime I see them pozing like that I think back to that (wait....fighting tears) first day like 12 years ago when I first saw Goodwill Hunting and it makes me cry I don't know why but it's every single time! I guess that's when I first fell in love with Matt Damon and buddy Ben (wait again I'm at Giant using the free internet...fighting tears) So that is why I really love them like I know them or something. Congradulations to Ben on the movie, the cute boy (he looks a little like Matt please don't hate me for saying it) and FOR STEALING MATT DAMON FROM THE EAST COAST SO I CAN MISS HIM LIKE THIS but I forgive you :) Those new pictures look really nice everybody looks beautiful and happy thanx for letting us peek into your lives--I like it I hope you don't hate it. Lucy looks so pretty and I'm so sorry for always lusting on your husband but I liked him first and I can't help it!!! He's hot married with your kids though. Ok...oh, the picture with Matt and Michael Douglass also made me cry thanx for voicing that--CANCER SUCKS KICK IT!
