'Behind the Candelabra': Matt Damon and Michael Douglas Sparkle (and Spar) in New HBO Trailer (Video)

Plus: Rob Lowe surfaces with a Snooki-orange tan as Liberace's plastic surgeon.

An extended trailer for HBO's upcoming Liberace film Behind the Candelabra has hit the web, unveiling a longer look at scenes involving Michael Douglas as the flamboyant piano player and Matt Damon as his much-younger lover Scott Thorson.

From the looks of the clip, the movie -- directed by Steven Soderbergh and set to premiere May 26 -- embraces campy fun along with a glossy, high-brow sophistication befitting a high-profile, A-list HBO project. Liberace and Thorson have a fight in a bathtub, Thorson hurls a glass at the wall and Rob Lowe sports an orange-y tan -- and the appearance of multiple face-lifts -- as Liberace's plastic surgeon.

 "All I do is give and give and give!" Liberace bellows, storming down a hallway.

Enjoy.
