HBO has a video showing off 2012 shows and what’s to come in 2013, which has a quick view of Behind The Candelabra (must be like 2 seconds and must be hardly call footage, but hey, I’m taking what I can get here!). Around 00:02:07 if you want to skip.
Matt Damon attended the “TimesTalk Presents An Evening With Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon & Gus Van Sant” tonight, below are pictures and the video interview.
Matt Damon was honoured for his career at this year’s Gotham Awards, here are pictures:
Here’s the article from BBC:
Actors Matt Damon and Marion Cotillard have received career tributes at the 22nd annual Gotham Awards in New York.
The Fighter director David O Russell was also honoured at the event, the first in the yearly film awards season.
Wes Anderson’s comedy Moonrise Kingdom was named best feature at the event, an annual ceremony held to recognise the year’s best independent films.
Britain’s Emily Blunt was recognised, along with her co-stars, in another indie comedy, Your Sister’s Sister.
The film, about a man who sleeps with his girlfriend’s sibling, beat Russell’s Oscar-tipped Silver Linings Playbook to the best ensemble performance award.
Another Oscar hopeful, the critically acclaimed Beasts of the Southern Wild, saw its director Benh Zeitlin receive the breakthrough director prize.
Zeitlin also received the inaugural Bingham Ray Award, named in honour of the former United Artists president and co-founder of October Films who died in January.
Damon, who received his award from Blunt’s actor husband John Krasinski, said it felt “really weird” to be honoured and joked that “people are trying to get rid of me”.
Fellow Oscar winner Cotillard said she felt “very welcomed” and “very happy” as she arrived at the event, held on Monday at the Cipriani restaurant on Wall Street.
The Gotham Awards are held annually by the Independent Feature Project, a not-for-profit organisation that supports independent film-making.
Last year’s event saw Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life and Christopher Plummer film Beginners share the top prize for best feature.
Captures from We Bought a Zoo in Blu-Ray quality have been added to the gallery:
I’ve posted some new stills from Matt Damon’s upcoming movie “Promised Land”.
A salesman for a natural gas company experiences life-changing events after arriving in a small town, where his corporation wants to tap into the available resources.
Collider.com has posted the first pictures of Matt on the set of Terry’s Gilliam’s sci-fi film “The Zero Theorem”:
The first images from the set of director Terry Gilliam’s upcoming sci-fi film The Zero Theorem have surfaced, and they’re unsurprisingly a little out there. The film stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation. We recently learned that Matt Damon would be reteaming with Gilliam for a small role in the pic, and these first set photos give us a look at Damon’s fantastically flamboyant character. The actor recently revealed that he ran into a bit of trouble when he had to shave his head for Elysium reshoots, but Gilliam decided to take advantage of the look and present Damon in a way he’s never been seen before.
Behind the Candelabra, the Liberace biopic being produced by HBO. Set to be released in 2013.
Steven Soderbergh is directing Behind the Candelabra from a screenplay by Richard LaGravenese. The story follows Liberace’s relationship with Scott Thorson, that lasted from 1977 to 1982. Liberace consistently denied allegations that he was homosexual throughout his career. He died of AIDS in 1987.
Behind the Candelabra comes to theaters in 2013 and stars Matt Damon, Michael Douglas, Rob Lowe, Dan Aykroyd, Scott Bakula, Debbie Reynolds, Boyd Holbrook, Cheyenne Jackson. The film is directed by Steven Soderbergh.
From Vanity Fair and the photo by Norman Jean Roy:
As Gordon “Greed is good” Gekko in Wall Street, Michael Douglas personified and immortalized money on the make. Now, improbably, inspiringly cast as the capering prince of the piano Liberace—!—in the upcoming HBO original film Behind the Candelabra (produced by the legendary Jerry Weintraub and directed by Steven Soderbergh, hot off the beefcake sizzle of Magic Mike), Douglas plays money dolled up for an eternal night on the town. Like Elvis Presley, another poor boy and social outcast who was glory-bound (each had a twin who died at birth!), Wladziu Valentino Liberace, born in 1919, rocketed through the gray flannel of the 50s in a riot of color, pomade, and mascara. Elvis’s gold lamé suit and Liberace’s sequined jackets could be spotted from outer space—“I’m glad you like it,” he would say after modeling his latest outfit onstage. “You paid for it”—and exploded out of the postwar closet of Puritan repression. Only, in Liberace’s case the closet held more than his wardrobe. Lee (as his friends called him) was a camping, vamping gay man who never “came out,” inhabiting pop culture’s original glass closet. As Dave Hickey writes in his essay “A Rhinestone As Big as the Ritz,” “Liberace’s closet was as democratically invisible as the emperor’s new clothes…. Everybody ‘got it.’ But nobody said it.” Until the shattering came. In 1982, Liberace’s former live-in chauffeur, bodyguard, secretary, and boy toy, Scott Thorson (portrayed by Matt Damon under a sandy thatch of 70s hair), sued for “palimony” and later wrote the memoir on which this movie is based. Liberace would die of aids in 1987, but his extravagant legacy lives on through Elton John, Lady Gaga, and the diamond skull of Damien Hirst.
