HBO FILMS: Behind the Candelabra Premiere Date & Teaser

By Jacob Klein on Mar 3, 2013 to HBO Films


Behind the Candelabra should catch your attention at the mention of the main characters: Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as Scott Thorson.  But the new HBO film also has a well known helmsmen: Stephen Soderbergh.  Tonight HBO released the first teaser trailer for the new TV movie that also reveals the premiere date of May 26th.

We were hoping to see some footage from the actual show but I suppose this will have to do for now.  Expect to see more at the big Game of Thrones premiere on March 31.  We’ve updated our HBO series schedule with this new air date.

Big things are happening on HBO this spring.

I missed the premiere on 5/26 but am dying to see it. When will it be showing on HBO again?

Still have a problem with this one…saw Liberace not only often on TV but live in Vegas with none other than Scott…is this a smear or what?

Well, Michael, Matt et. all you must be hard up for cash…the man is dead…Scott is a joke…and yet you come out with this pathetic smear…

I’m a Palm Springs extra in the movie too! Will have to have a party on May 26th to celebrate the premier.

Is there anything you guys can talk about? Would love to get an article from your perspective. Even if its just “what its like to be an extra on an HBO show”.

Hit me up at if you’re interested.

I’m and extra on the movie. Those of us who live in Palm Springs area are excited about knowing it will finally air!!

I’m an extra in the movie and I appreciate knowing the date of its airing. Thanks.

No problem! We’ll look for you if you tell us what you look like.

I noticed they added the subtitle – The Secret Life of Liberace.
Even if you don’t know who the entertainer is doesn’t mean you shouldn’t watch this HBO Film.
