If you already know the true story, looking at this first official photo of Amanda Seyfried in the 1970s pornstar bio-pic Lovelace may recall the lines of a Smokey Robinson song from just before this era.

“Take a good look at my face / You’ll see my smile looks out of place …”

Dale Robinette

This is Linda Boreman and her husband Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard) in happier times, before she would become known to the world as sex starlet Linda Lovelace through one of the earliest mainstream X-rated films, 1972’s Deep Throat. Later in life, Boreman (who died in 2002 at age 53) renounced her porn career and said she was pushed into it by Traynor, who beat and threatened her. While the world saw her as a fun-loving, sex-starved nymphomaniac, the reality of her off-screen ordeal is far darker and sadder than the fantasy she embodied.

The movie is currently in production and doesn’t have a release date. Demi Moore, Adam Brody, and Eric Roberts recently joined the cast, alongside Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Robert Patrick, Bobby Cannavale, and Chris Noth.

Lovelace is being directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, best known for another counter-culture movie, the Allen Ginsberg film Howl. Meanwhile, another film about Lovelace, Inferno, is currently in production starring Malin Ackerman.

Marvel teaming up with Telltale Games for a future game project

Comments +

While Marvel’s stable of heroes have been ruling the box office for years, their presence in video games has been, in a word, sparse since Disney acquired Marvel. Mobile games have frequently popped up, an MMO called Marvel Heroes has been around for a couple of years, and Disney Infinity integrated Spider-Man with Mickey Mouse last year. But otherwise the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, and Wolverine haven’t seen much play in narratively driven games.

Marvel’s latest announcement looks to change that, however.
