Battle of the Sexes Trailer with Emma Stone & Steve Carell Arrives

In 1973, a showboating tennis match became a cultural battleground when Billie Jean King agreed to go three sets with Bobby Riggs, after Riggs had defeated noted player Margaret Court in a similar series.

With The French Open and Wimbledon right around the corner, the Grand slam matches are on the minds of every tennis fan. In a nutshell, Battle of the Sexes shines the spotlight on something much greater than just a tennis match, but rather issues our society, sadly, still struggles with today almost 44 years later. The match caught the zeitgeist and sparked a global conversation on gender equality, spurring on the feminist movement. Take a look at the trailer below.

It may be 40 years later, but this really couldn't have come at a better time!
