More images from the biopic Lovelace are out, and, as someone who appreciates accurate period costume and hair design, I am pleased. Just a few weeks ago we got a peek at James Franco sleazing it up as a young Hugh Hefner as he cozied up to a brunette Amanda Seyfried, who really looked the part of porn star Linda Lovelace. The vintage feel of the film really comes through in some new stills that come courtesy of New York Times, among them a wide shot of Seyfried decked out in some disco era finery, and a nicely outfitted crowd shot outside a movie theater. Based on what I’ve seen so far, even if the movie doesn’t deliver in other areas, I think I’ll at least enjoy eyeballing all the great leisure suits and Halston dresses.
Seyfried channels Lovelace in a retro-style poster that was also released, but it looks like it was meant for use in the film as opposed to promotion. Regardless, it’s a great homage to ’70s poster design, right down to the suggestive tag line “More than a lot of little tingles” and the XXX rating. See above and below:
Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, the film also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Juno Temple, and Sharon Stone, among several others.
Do the new images make you want to see Lovelace?
