The first trailer for “Lovelace” is here, starring Amanda Seyfried in a true story based on 70′s adult film star, Linda Lovelace. The film takes place during the height of her fame during the 1972 release of “Deep Throat.”
The trailer is pretty tame for a film about a porn star, but it does give us a look into the life of Linda Lovelace and the abuse she endured on camera and at the hands of her ultra-sleazy husband, Chuck Traynor, played by Peter Sarsgaard.
“Lovelace” is one of many upcoming films about porn to be released. Others include Michael Winterbottom’s Look of Love, about Soho’s magazine and strip joint ‘King’ Paul Raymond (Steve Coogan), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s porn addict trying to become less selfish in Don Jon’s Addiction. Let’s not forget Lars Von Trier‘s sex drama “Nymphomaniac” starring Shia LaBeouf and Uma Thurman. Lovelace hits US theaters August 9th and UK theaters on August 23rd .
