Lifetime has finally released a teaser trailer for their upcoming feature film Liz & Dick, which stars Lindsay Lohan as Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor and Grant Bowler as Richard Burton. The promotional video which runs in just under 30 seconds shows a series of split-second cut scenes that gives the viewers a quick glimpse on the highs and the lows of the Hollywood couple’s relationship.
In one interview, Lohan said of the late actress, who passed away in March 2011 at the age of 79, “I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am honored to have been asked to play this role.”
But the question is, how well did Lohan portray the late Hollywood icon? Well, if one were to ask the film’s producer, Larry Thompson, he has this to say about the actress, “…we had Lindsay and Grant come into a room at Lifetime and the chemistry exploded. It was Fourth of July firecrackers going off in the room. We knew from the chemistry that Liz and Dick live again.”
Sounds a little clichéd, don’t you think? I guess we can only hope to see another trailer that will contain a much longer clip, enough for us to gauge Lohan’s performance. If not, then we’ll just have to actually wait for the made-for-TV movie’s release on November 3.
