BBC Releases First Burton and Taylor Trailer
BBC has released the first trailer for Burton and Taylor, the TV film starring Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West as the iconic Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
The 90-minute drama is set years after the couple’s second divorce and follows their tumultuous relationship as they prepare for a 1983 revival of the play Private Lives. Taylor and Burton played the leads in the stage production, which, yes, is about a divorced couple that rekindles their romance. “Does this mean marriage number three?” someone in the trailer asks Taylor and her ex-husband.
Not to be confused with the recently aired Lifetime movie on the same subject—Liz and Dick, which starred Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler—Burton and Taylor is set to make its premiere this fall on BBC.
