'Lovelace' Trailer: Amanda Seyfried Channels a Porn Legend (Video)

Lovelace Poster - P 2012

The film, about the star of the 1972 sensation "Deep Throat," also features cameos from James Franco and Sharon Stone.

Audiences curious to check out Lovelace, the big-screen depiction of the meteoric rise of adult film star Linda Lovelace, can now watch the biopic's first trailer.

The film stars Amanda Seyfried as the 19-year-old from Florida, born Linda Boreman, who became a crossover sensation after her talents were showcased in Deep Throat, the movie credited with launching the "porn chic" craze of the early 1970s.

Sundance Review: Lovelace

Tracing the unlikely starlet's journey from naive ingenue to the poster girl for the sexually freewheeling, pre-AIDS era -- followed by later efforts to expose her own victimization and reclaim her life -- Lovelace also stars Peter Sarsgaard as Chuck Traynor, Linda's abusive svengali of a boyfriend, plus Hank Azaria and Bobby Cannavale as the film's sleazy director and producer.

Watch closely for cameos from a gussied-down Sharon Stone as Linda's mother and James Franco as fan-for-life, Hugh HefnerLovelace, which The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy called "surprisingly good on several fronts" in his Sundance review, opens August 9.

UPDATE: A rep for the movie has requested that THR remove what they say is the incorrect trailer. The official trailer will be released on July 10.

Below is the U.K. trailer.
