We knew Amanda Seyfried could belt a number after watching Les Miserables, but we’ve now learned that not all of her skills are quite so classy, thanks to the new trailer for the upcoming porn star movie Lovelace.
The U.K. trailer for the Linda Lovelace biopic, directed by Howl‘s Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, not only follows Lovelace’s ascension to porn-stardom with the 1972 release of her hardcore porno Deep Throat, but also delves into the threatening story behind the orgasms: namely her coercive husband, Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard), who forced her into the porno industry.
With a thumping beat, the trailer kicks off with Lovelace (Seyfried) in a retro. A bold red hat seated atop of a head full of curly brown locks, the actress gushes over her erotic flicks: “To me, it’s a movie, like any other movie. Only it has so many better things in it… like me.” Then the trailer launches into tons of cameras flashing, booty shaking, and lots and lots of… well, figure it out. But it does reveal a darker tone as the severe relationship between Lovelace and her abusive husband unfolds.
Watch Amanda Seyfried bare it all as she stars in Lovelace when it flashes into theaters August 9th.
