We're not so sure how to feel about this...
Here we go again!
We already got a taste of Elizabeth Taylor's life with Richard Burton when Lindsay Lohan did her thing in Liz & Dick, but now we're getting some more goodness with Helena Bonham Carter taking on the challenge of portraying the legendary actress.
We showed you the first pic of Helena as Liz in Burton and Taylor, but now we're getting a sneak peek of the action to come!
Starring alongside Dominic West as Richard, these two certainly bring a very different energy to the roles.
We're not going to call which will be better just yet since we haven't seen the BBC TV movie, but we have our suspicions, and it ain't looking good for LiLo!
Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) and tell us which you think will be better!
You know Debbie Reynolds. She’s the one Lindsay Lohan didn’t play in Liz & Dick. (Small favors, Debs!!!)
Debbie was America’s Jen Aniston-level sweetheart in the 1950s, but, sadly, her husband,
ladies’ man singer Eddie Fisher, who died in 2010, didn’t feel the same, leaving Debbie for the late femme fatale Elizabeth Taylor — the Angelina Jolie before Angelina Jolie.
While promoting her current film, HBO's Behind the Candelabra, Debbie explained:
This time, Helena Bonham Carter and The Wire's Dominic West will play the ultimate on-again, off-agains, and they've got the makeup to prove it!
We think Helena looks incredible! This might also be the first time since she married Tim Burton that we've seen her without her kooky goth look! She may be the only actress who has to tone down the eyeliner for the Cleopatra scenes! LOLz!
One serious question though- why not Johnny Depp for Richard Burton? He loves working with Helena! Sure, he doesn't look anything like him, but come on! Johnny Depp!
What do U think? Helena or Lindsay??

If you’ve always wanted to walk down the aisle in Elizabeth Taylor's wedding dress, then you’re in luck!
Next month, Christie’s is auctioning off the very first wedding gown Liz ever wore when she tied the knot with Conrad Hilton Jr. on May 6, 1950 at the tender age of 18.
Created by costume designer Helen Rose and gifted to the legendary actress from MGM, the shell-white satin gown is embellished with seed pearls and bugle beads, boasts a 15-yard train and features a built-in corset to give Taylor a 20 inch waist.
The wedding gown is expected to fetch at least $75,175 when it hits the auction block on June 26th in London, but based on previous Elizabeth Taylor auctions, we wouldn't be surprised if it sold for MUCH more than that.
And if you can't get your hands on Elizabeth's first gown, don't worry! She walked down the aisle 7 other times, so it's only a matter of time before they hit the auction block too.

That's it, we give up. Jessica Chastain wins everything!
The actress rarely disappoints with her fashion choices, and when she really turns it out, she knocks the wind out of us!
You'd think it'd be illegal to be this FAB!!!
Ariel's doppelgänger was the empress of the Cleopatra premiere at Cannes on Tuesday, looking STELLAR in a creamy and luscious white Versace Collection gown with sweeping cape-train, AKA, a cape that turns into a train.
Priceless, just like those jewels.

By almost any measurable metric, Lifetime's Liz & Dick was an utter disaster!
That isn't to say LiLo didn't learn a few things playing the oft-married celeb, however!!
In fact, she thinks the two of them had a ton in common, especially as far as living a life in the limelight is concerned!
Ch-ch-check out Lindz comparing herself to Liz in a DVD special feature sneak-peek, given EXCLUSIVELY to us (above)!!
In a rare moment of unscripted candor, the Mean Girls star opened up about how incessant media attention drives even the most secure of celebs a tad bit wacky!!
Hmm, maybe this mandatory stint at Betty Ford (and away from media scrutiny) really will help her refocus on what matters!
The Liz & Dick DVD hits shelves on May 14!
In a last-ditch effort to get the best plea deal possible for lying to the cops, Linds is meeting with her lawyer before she faces the jury in less than two weeks!
A source explained:
“Los Angeles City Attorney Terry White has told Lindsay’s lawyer, Mark Heller, he would be willing to meet with her before the trial is scheduled to begin on March 18. Both sides are working towards hammering out a plea deal in the case, but as of right now, the possibility still exists any deal could include her going to rehab. Lindsay strongly feels that if she is able to talk to the prosecutor he will be able to see that she doesn’t need to enter a treatment facility. However, White is a respected and smart prosecutor, and he won’t be influenced by Lindsay’s celebrity status. He is treating her as he would any other defendant.”
Hopefully she'll put on her best performance yet during that plea deal, because gurlfriend is going to need it if she hopes to stay out of jail and rehab!
We would take whatever that prosecutor hands out, even if it is a stint in rehab!
On the slight chance that Linds does win in court, she could still face up to 245 days in the slammer for violating probation in that necklace theft incident.
