The first trailer has been released for the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic, titled “Lovelace,” starring Amanda Seyfried in the title role of famous “Deep Throat” porn star from the early 1970s. But the film is not focusing solely on that aspect of Lovelace’s life.

The film follows Lovelace’s journey from small-town Linda Susan Boreman to celebrity, as the porn industry came into being, to activist against pornography and the industry’s practices.

The movie boasts some other big names, including Peter Sarsgaard as Lovelace’s husband, Chuck Traynor, Sharon Stone and Robert Patrick as Lovelace’s parents, Adam Brody as “Deep Throat” co-star Harry Reems and James Franco as Hugh Hefner.

“Lovelace” opens nationwide on Aug. 8, 2013.
