Behind the Candelabra dramatic trailer
There's a new, more dramatic trailer for Behind the Candelabra, the last film from Steven Soderbergh which features Michael Douglas as Liberace, the amazing showman and pianist and charts his relationship with his lover Scott Thorson played by Matt Damon.
While the previous trailer we saw was all glitter and smiles, this one reveals how dark the relationship turns and is a much tougher and dramatic trailer. It does look like Soderbergh is going out on a high note with Douglas and Damon set for sparkling performances.
This new trailer for Behind the Candelabra lives up to the title and looks like it's going to show the whole story of the relationship and what Liberace was really like. There are already some shocking moments, one in particular that was sold in the first trailer with a much lighter tone but here seems far more troubling. Liberace asking his surgeon to make his liver, Thorson, more like his own painting. That's bound to make even a psychiatrist confused.
Here's a bigger blurb for the film:
Before Elvis, before Elton John, Madonna and Lady Gaga, there was Liberace - infamous pianist, outrageous entertainer and flamboyant star of stage and television. A name synonymous with showmanship and extravagance, he lit up every stage he performed on, as bright as his candelabras and with a unique flair that gained him millions of devoted fans across the globe.
In the summer of 1977, handsome young stranger Scott Thorson walked into Liberace's dressing room and, despite their age difference and seemingly different worlds, the two embarked on a secretive five-year love affair. To the outside world Scott was an employee, at most a friend, but behind closed doors his life with Liberace was an intense rollercoaster of hedonistic fun, flamboyance and excess.
The new trailer for Behind the Candelabra comes through TrailerAddict and looks very good and I'm particularly drawn to the performances we're going to be seeing from Matt Damon and particularly Michael Douglas.
