Watch: Trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Behind the Candelabra

Two things strike us about this new trailer. Firstly, Steven Soderbergh has another film coming out? Really? The guy only just released Side Effects. Secondly, can that really be Michael Douglas? Just look at those jackets!

Turns out yes. Yes it is Michael Douglas. Here he stars as Liberace, the real-life American pianist and vocalist, alongside Matt Damon as his young gay lover. 

With the camp factor turned up to eleven, and featuring two A-listers as you've never seen them before, Behind the Candelabra looks like an hilarious romp, not to mention a compelling drama. Let us know what you make of this latest trailer. 

Word on the street is that the film will premiere at Cannes this year and will air on HBO on Sunday, May 26th at 9pm.
