Emma Stone, Steve Carell Face Off In ‘Battle Of The Sexes’ Trailer

Emma Stone and Steve Carell are heading back to the 1970s for their new dramedy.

Fresh off her Oscar win for “La La Land”, Stone stars as World No. 1 tennis player Billie Jean King in the real-life story of the 1973 tennis match that pitted her against ex-champ Bobby Riggs, played by Carell.

With a worldwide audience of over 90 million viewers, the broadcast was one of the most-watched sports telecasts in history. But not all of the action took place on the court; in addition to sparking an international conversation about gender equality and feminism, King was also struggling with her closeted homosexuality, while Riggs had placed his legacy on the line against a woman 26 years his junior.
