Behind the Candelabra teaser trailer
  • A second teaser trailer for Behind the Candelabra, which includes the first clips from the film, is at EW. More excerpts from the interview are also included.

    Glitter, champagne, Matt Damon in a metallic soldier-boy uniform — it’s all there in the new teaser trailer for HBO’s Behind the Candelabra (airing May 26), starring Michael Douglas as the extravagant showman Liberace and Matt Damon as his much-younger lover, Scott Thorson. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the movie reveals the tawdry underside of Liberace’s real life, from his extravagant spending to his taste for younger men and his fascination with plastic surgery — much of which the performer fought to keep secret from the public before he died of AIDS in 1987. “He was the biggest act in the world, and the whole time, petrified of his secret coming out,” Damon told EW. “You see him in the movie going to a sex store — nowadays, he’d be [exposed] on Twitter so fast.”

    But Liberace’s musical talent always outshone his vices, and Douglas had the task of recapturing the magic of Liberace’s live shows onscreen. Damon recalls: “The moment I knew we were fine was the Sunday before we started shooting. Michael had a brunch at his house, and his son sat up in front of everybody and did the entire monologue with the [piano-playing] hand movements and everything. And I thought, ‘Oh my God. I can’t imagine how much Michael has been rehearsing for his 11-year-old son to be able to actually do the thing!’”

    First of all; I love all the Berlin photos.
    And the video of Matt & Cate in the set of MM was very interesting. Are they playing the leading roles in the movie? Or is the part George's playing the main character?
    The family photos in the park are cute. But I think the german newspaper got the girls names wrong. The girl holding Matt's hand and making funny faces is Gia, not Stella.

    George probably has the lead role in the film and Cate has a supporting one - mostly interacting with Matt and Jean Dujardin's chatacters (he films for 15 days in April). Matt will have a large supporting role, and probably will be back on set in parts of May and June.

    I think it's Stella but I'm not sure.

    Matt and family are definitely back in NY - a few sightings today.

    Oh, OK. You know better. It's just when I saw the photos on the russian site (photos 7 & 8) I realized that the little girl with lighter hair (next to the other woman) looks higher because she's mounted on something. I thought that was little Stella. So, I assumed that the girl who was with Matt was Gia.

    I have high hopes for MM. LOVE the cast of this movie. Great actors. All of them.

    I wish we could see more clips from BTC. The second trailer looks awesome.

    PS: (I'm still learning english, so, forget my mistakes)
