First Official Photo from ‘Liz & Dick': The Magic Eye Image of Marketing Stills

While first look images of Lifetime television movies aren’t exactly our bread and butter around these parts, I’ve spent enough time ripping into Liz & Dick that I thought we’d be remiss not to provide a look at the film, no matter how scant it may be, particularly now that it’s actually (almost unfathomably) in production. The Lindsay Lohan- and Grant Bowler-starring film centers on one of Hollywood’s greatest (and most notorious) love stories – that of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

As Lohan and Bowler don’t exactly ring bells as Taylor and Burton (Lohan in particular is really pushing the bounds of cinematic believability), the team behind the inexplicable film seem aware of what they’re working with – which is likely why this first look conceals both actors’ eyes and half of each of their faces. It’s the Magic Eye image of movie photos – it all but begs for squinting and head-tilting, which just might bizarrely result in brief flashes of recognition. Sure, they could look like Taylor and Burton, but who’s really to say? It could be anyone in this picture (and isn’t it fun to pretend it’s anyone but Lohan and Bowler?).

Deadline Hampstead first posted the picture, which you can get a bigger look at after the break.
