Having shared the screen previously in Crazy, Stupid, Love, Emma Stone and Steve Carell are now matching wits and volleys in true-life tennis drama Battle Of The Sexes. See the new trailer...

Written by Simon Beaufoy, the film will chronicle the rivalry between former tennis pro Bobby Riggs (Carell) and his 29-year-old opponent Billie Jean King, who hit the court for a legendary match in 1973 that (it was claimed) would establish if a female pro could ever beat a male in the sport. The event drew a huge audience of more than 50 million Americans, eager to see who would triumph. Riggs was a showboating chauvinist, while King was the equality-minded crusader intent on putting him in his place.

As well as the re-teaming of its stars, Battle Of The Sexes also represents another reunion: Little Miss Sunshine’s Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (who worked with Carell on that film) are once again calling the shots.

With Sarah Silverman, Bill Pullman, Andrea Riseborough and Alan Cumming also in the cast, Battle Of The Sexes will be out in the UK on 20 October.
