While we have had a big couple of days in terms of promotion for the big mid-year blockbusters, the smaller pictures are also moving ahead full steam, including a brand new poster that arrived for the biopic Lovelace, directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. Amanda Seyfried leads the Linda Lovelace biopic, based on Eric Danville’s book “The Complete Linda Lovelace”, that also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, James Franco, Eric Roberts, Adam Brody, Chloe Sevigny and Sarah Jessica Parker. The film is told through the perspective of three interviewers and follows Linda Boreman’s rise to fame as iconic porn star Linda Lovelace in the 1972 film Deep Throat, and her subsequent transformation into anti-porn activist Linda Marchiano. Featuring Seyfried in a seductive pose, the artwork tries to showcase the adult nature of the story and its provocative central character, but is a relatively tame attempt. Take a look at the work below!

Based on the life of Linda Lovelace, the star of Deep Throat, Lovelace chronicles the development of the film and its aftermath as she struggled with an abusive husband in the form of Chuck Traynor.
Another independent feature that has received new poster art is Liberal Arts, Josh Radnor’s (How I Met Your Mother) follow-up to happythankyoumoreplease. Premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the cast includes Radnor, Elizabeth Olsen, Richard Jenkins, Allison Janney, John Magaro and Elizabeth Reaser. The film centres on Jesse (Radnor), a 35-year-old, who is invited back to his alma mater, where he falls for a 19-year-old college student (Olsen) and is faced with the powerful attraction that springs up between them, despite their difference in age starting to get in the way as Jesse moves away from a hedonistic lifestyle. The poster highlights the central relationship inside a sensationalised backdrop and features an extremely cheesy tagline. It is nice to look at but certainly nothing special. Check it out below!
