Based on an incredible true story of the most famous tennis match in history, Battle of the Sexes explores the legendary rivalry between women’s world #1 Billie Jean King (Academy Award winner Emma Stone) and former world #1 and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (comedy icon Steve Carell). After Riggs announced a $100,000 open challenge to any woman that could beat him, a feud was ignited that led to one of the most watched sporting events of all time.
Battle of the Sexes captures the outrageous and extravagant on-court rivalry between King and Riggs, as well as King’s off-court battle for women’s equality in the sport. Together, the determined Billie Jean and the obnoxious Bobby served up a spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.
Battle of the Sexes in cinemas 28 September.
