Trailer: Helena Bonham Carter Is Liz And Dominic West is Dick In Burton And Taylor

The BBC might not have the big-time directors behind the camera on their TV movies, at least not anybody to compete with HBO’s Steven Soderbergh, Jay Roach, David Mamet and so on.

But they can get some great stars on screen.

So, below is first trailer for Burton and Taylor, another Liz and Dick movie. Helena Bonham Carter is a curious pick for Elizabether Taylor, but it works better than I’d feared, and I think Dominic West seems pretty much bang-on as Richard Burton. He’s certainly got the simmer going.

I’ll give it a spin. I did already pay for it, after all.
