Crazy, Stupid Love reunions are not simply relegated to Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone collaborations, as Stone pairs up once again with Steve Carell in Battle of the Sexes.
Directed by Little Miss Sunshine filmmakers Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the project centers on the tennis match that pitted Billie Jean King (Stone) and hustler Bobby Riggs (Carell). The event was one of the most popular sports events of all times, as this gender battle was a huge draw thanks to King’s prodigious skills as well as Riggs’ gift for drumming up an event with his gift of gab.
Along with the topnotch talent, Battle of the Sexes was penned by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire), and one wouldn’t be surprised if this movie gets recognition come awards time. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
Battle of the Sexes opens nationwide September 22.
