Emma Stone Fights Steve Carell In Battle Of The Sexes Trailer

Steve Carell is here to "put the show back in chauvinist" in the new trailer for he and Emma Stone's upcoming dramedy Battle of the Sexes. The movie tells the true story of the epic tennis match between legends Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King, with Carell as Riggs and Stone as King.

The trailer begins with Riggs in a Gamblers Anonymous meeting. He isn't exactly a model participant, saying that everyone who's there isn't there because they gamble; they're there because they're terrible at it. "These folks don't need to stop what they're doing," he says. "They just need to get better at it."

The idea of betting sparks an idea in the wild Riggs, who calls up King in the middle of the night, calling for a match of the "male chauvinist pig vs. the hairy-legged feminist." King notes that she's just "a tennis player who happens to be a woman" (and that she's shaved her legs now), turning down his invitation. However, Riggs goes on TV baiting her, saying women belong on the tennis court to "pick up the balls," and promising that he could beat King in a match. She decides to go head to head with him, and the media circus around the match ensues.

"Don't get me wrong, I love women– in the bedroom and in the kitchen," Riggs says to assembled reporters at a press conference. "Keep talking Bobby," King responds. "The more nonsense you spout, the worse it's gonna be when you lose."

The movie isn't just about tennis, as King is still discovering her sexuality, saying that she wants to be the best so that she has the chance to "really change things" in the male-dominated world. "We want a little bit of what you've got," she says. "That's what you can't stand." Riggs also has a lot riding on the match, and, with 40 million people watching, the pressure is on for both King and Riggs to prove their worth.

Andrea Riseborough, Sarah Silverman, Bill Pullman, Alan Cumming, Elisabeth Shue, Austin Stowell, Jessica Mcnamee, Natalie Morales, Fred Armisen, Martha MacIsaac, Mickey Sumner, Bridey Elliott, Eric Christian Olsen, Wallace Langham, and Matt Malloy also star in the film, which was directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton based on a script from Simon Beaufoy. The movie will hit theaters on Sept. 22; while we wait, see all of the movies you have to look forward to in the next few months.
