HBO's 'Behind the Candelabra': Liberace biopic teaser

Posted on

There’ll be glitz, glamour, and Matt Damon butt shots galore in Behind the Candelabra, an HBO movie about Liberace that may or may not be Steven Soderbergh’s final film as director — but you’ll see none of that in this new teaser, which may more accurately be called Inside the Piano.

Even if the video doesn’t feature star Michael Douglas as Mr. Showmanship himself, it is a pretty nifty bit of animation… especially if it does turn out to be one of the last times Soderbergh’s name appears in a credits sequence. Watch below:

Behind the Candelabra airs May 26 on HBO.
