Amanda Seyfried stars in the official Lovelace poster
Last week saw the release of the new trailer for LOVELACE (click the link to view). Now we get a look at the official new poster featuring Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace front and center. The cast is pretty impressive and it looks like there will be some pretty phenomenal performances, but I can’t say that I find the story about a girl finding success in the porn industry remotely interesting. LOVELACE is set to star Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, Wes Bentley, Juno Temple, Sharon Stone, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Adam Brody, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Chloe Sevigny and James Franco. Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman are directing the film which is set to hit theaters on August 9th. (EW)
The official synopsis for LOVELACE: In 1972—before the internet, before the porn explosion—Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted pornographic theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace. Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor. As Linda Lovelace she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. Fully inhabiting her new identity, Linda became an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory, narrative to the world—and herself as the survivor of a far darker story.
