First came the big tease of a teaser. Then came a brief trailer with some of the fabulous visuals we'd expect from a Liberace biopic, including a shot of stars Matt Damon and Michael Douglas sharing a tub. Now comes a real doozy of a full trailer for HBO's Behind the Candelabra, a movie that may demand gay cocktail party viewing.

Liberace speaks! Plus, Debbie Reynolds is unrecognizable, Rob Lowe's plastic surgery face makes him look like Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder, and we finally get a mouthwatering glimpse of the spray tan Damon discussed in the recent Behind the Candelabra EW cover story.

Douglas plays Liberace and Damon portrays Scott Thorson, the unlikely paramour of the late, great entertainer, in the Steven Soderbergh-directed film, which will premiere May 26. From the looks of the latest trailer, that relationship was super-creepy.

Check out the clip below. Does Behind the Candelabra look Emmy-worthy — or like Liz & Dick had unprotected gay sex with Showgirls?
