‘Lovelace’ Trailer: Amanda Seyfried Sparks a Revolution With Her Throat

Lovelace Amanda Seyfried

“We’re all gonna win Oscars.”

Linda Lovelace’s life is ripe fruit for the biopic plucking, and with this first trailer for Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s Lovelace, it looks like Amanda Seyfried truly owns the role and the spotlight as the porn star turned icon turned anti-porn advocate. You see, Lovelace’s life is filled with some truly heinous stuff (including films called Peeverted and Dog Fucker), that could be brutal on screen given the context of her relationship with the abusive Chuck Traynor (played by Peter Sarsgaard). The problem is that if the cut is the same as it was at Sundance, it could still be a pretty bland affair.

Seyfried looks kind of adorably stupid here, but there’s no doubt her Lovelace will wise up once the flash bulbs are all thrown away. The question is how well this particular take will portray a story so full of potential.

Check out the trailer for yourself:

Does anyone else find it fascinatingly appropriate for Chloe Sevigny to co-star in a movie about the star of Deep Throat a decade after The Brown Bunny?

Lovelace is in theaters August 9th.
