We’re pretty intrigued by Amanda Seyfried’s upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic “Lovelace,” and the latest poster for the flick leaves a lot about the film to the imagination. The fairly straightforward poster shows Seyfried posing seductively in a lacy red bra with the caption “X marks the legend.”
The image comes courtesy of Latino Review, and they also seem pretty unimpressed with the image, calling it “lifeless.” The marketing campaign for the movie so far has been pretty PG-rated, which is impressive because the flick is about the career of a porn star. Maybe the folks behind it are trying to have the project seem less risqué because they’re trying to appeal to a wider audience, but we’d be lying if we said we didn’t like the “Deep Throat” poster created for the film more.
At least the images released so far have given us a good idea of what we can expect from the movie. The three stills that have come out focus on Lovelace as a star as well as her relationship with her husband, Chuck Traynor. Considering the movie follows her rise to fame as a porn star followed by her transition into a feminist, anti-porn activist, this focus should come as no surprise.
Based on Eric Danville’s biography “The Complete Linda Lovelace,” the film is directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman and stars Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Adam Brody, Chloe Sevigny, Sarah Jessica Parker and James Franco. “Lovelace” has not yet secured a US release date.
