Radius-TWC has revealed new images from Lovelace, the Linda Lovelace biopic, which will be released in theaters and on demand August 9th, 2013.

In 1972—before the internet, before the porn explosion—Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted pornographic theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace (Amanda Seyfried). Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor. As Linda Lovelace she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. Fully inhabiting her new identity, Linda became an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory, narrative to the world—and herself as the survivor of a far darker story.
Lovelace is directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (Howl, The Celluloid Closet) from a screenplay by Andy Bellin (Trust). The film is produced by Heidi Jo Markel, Laura Rister, Jason Weinberg, and Jim Young. Executive Producers are Boaz Davidson, Danny Dimbort, Mark Gill, Merritt Johnson, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short and John Thompson.
