Set in downtown New York in 1900...
No one saves face in director Steven Soderbergh's ghoulishly entertaining, opulently produced Behind the Candelabra (Sunday, 9/8c), HBO's grandest, gaudiest and most fascinating movie in quite a long while — probably since last year's Game Change, in which Julianne Moore's uncanny impersonation of Sarah Palin swept the awards the way Michael Douglas is likely to repeat with his equally astonishing transformation into the flamboyant but closeted "Mr. Showmanship" Liberace.
It all started, oddly enough, on the set of director Steven Soderbergh's gritty, Oscar-winning 2000 drama Traffic. "Steven said to me, 'You ever think of playing Liberace?'" remembers Michael Douglas of the first time he was approached to portray the ultra-effeminate yet closeted pianist who was the world's highest-paid entertainer for decades. "And I thought, 'This guy's f---ing with me. I'm playing the drug czar! Is this some kind of director's trick?'"
Michael Douglas and Matt Damon
HBO has debuted a trailer for Steven Soderbergh's long-in-development Liberace biopic, and it is as over-the-top as its subject. Michael Douglas stars as the flamboyant entertainer; Matt Damon plays his younger lover Scott Thorson. The hair, the costumes — everything is dripping is feathers and rhinestones! Be sure to keep an eye out for co-stars Rob Lowe and Dan Aykroyd looking just as groovy. Check out the trailer:

Unlike the previous trailer, which had a heavy focus on the actual plot of the film (yawn), this U.K. TV spot is more about fitting in as many scandalous shots of stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello as possible.

Steven Soderbergh's virus outbreak thriller Contagion fittingly topped what was a pretty sickly weekend box office.
The film, which stars Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jude Law, pulled in $23.1 million, according to Box Office Mojo. That was enough to topple three-time champ The Help, which fell to second place with an additional $8.7 million (for a total of $137 million after five weeks).
All told, the box office gross for the weekend's top 10 films was only $66.4 million, the lowest weekend gross this year....
