From an adult film star to a technological genius, the icons portrayed in Jobs and Lovelace could not be more different – but their biopics have something in common: They both hit theaters this summer, one week apart.

Lovelace, which stars Amanda Seyfried, portrays the life of porn great, Linda “Lovelace” Boreman, who broke free from her abusive manager-boyfriend and helped prevent other women from getting similarly exploited in that world. It opens this weekend.

Jobs features Ashton Kutcher as late Apple pioneer Steve Jobs, giving viewers an inside look at his complicated life and road to success.
