First Trailer For Burton & Taylor: “We’re Addicts Elizabeth, You and I”

8 Jul

Last month the first photo of Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton was released and now we have the first trailer. Set in 1983 the 90-minute drama tells the story of the pair performing together in Noël Coward’s play Private Lives. Burton and Taylor are known for having a love story for the ages; one that was passionate and turbulent and this biopic will chronicle one of their last periods.

The promo reveals both personal and public aspects of Burton and Taylor, with Burton comparing their story to addiction and Taylor responds with “Love is not a drug.” In this case it might very well be. Both Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West look up for the task of playing such well known figures and their chemistry is obvious form this preview; it’s probably safe to say that this will be a much better attempt at portraying their story than Lifetime’s Liz & Dick, which aired last year.

I’m already obsessed with Burton’s camel coat and blue scarf combo as he walks down to the subway and it looks like it will be a costuming feast for the eyes.

Burton & Taylor airs on BBC 4 and BBC America later this year.


New Girl Auto-Tuned

30 Apr

New Girl is back tonight (it feels like it has been gone for so long) and it is an episode that promises to be hilariously awkward as the group each reveals how they lost their virginity all with the aid of flashbacks. Flashbacks that feature wigs, homemade prom dresses, braces, a miniature castle, Dylan O’Brien from Teen Wolf, a jar of lube and prostitutes. This is definitely an eclectic mix! This looks like it could be a big episode for fans of Nick and Jess as the sexual tension between the pair has been growing since their first kiss; will they be able to keep to the middle school dance rules that Jess suggested after their first date confusion?

Fox has produced a video that features many of these Nick and Jess moments from this season and turned it into an auto-tune remix. It sounds bizarre but it works in a strange/funny way and when Jake Johnson posted the link on Twitter yesterday he teased “This video is ridiculous and I like it. New Girl is new tomorrow night. It’s about sex. Old sex & new sex.”
