In 1973, America’s most famous tennis players, Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, competed in a match dubbed the Battle of the Sexes. Spoiler alert: She won, girls rule, boys drool.
Emma Stone and Steve Carell will play King and Riggs in a movie titled, well, “Battle of the Sexes.” It’s the latest project from “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Ruby Sparks” directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. The trailer, which premiered Tuesday, features a lot of “can-a-woman-beat-a-dude?” squabbling. Guess we know the answer to that one.
“Battle of the Sexes” opens Sept. 22, right as Oscar season kicks off.
