It was announced today that ‘Battle of the Sexes’ starred by Emma and Steve Carell was selected for be the Amex UK Gala during the BFI London Film Festival this year! Emma is expected to attend. Check more details bellow:
The 61st BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express® is thrilled to serve up Battle of the Sexes, starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell, as the American Express Gala at this year’s Festival. The film will receive its European premiere on Saturday 7 October at London’s Odeon Leicester Square, with Emma Stone, Andrea Riseborough, Elisabeth Shue, directors Valerie Faris & Jonathan Dayton, and the legendary Billie Jean King expected to attend.
The BFI London Film Festival, Fox Searchlight Pictures and American Express® are also delighted to announce that there will be screenings of Battle of the Sexes with highlights from the festival premiere taking place at cinemas across the UK on Tuesday 10 October.
In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s world champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the Battle of the Sexes and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world.
As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough) developed. And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife Priscilla (Elisabeth Shue). Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.
It was announced today that Emma’s upcoming movie, ‘Battle of the Sexes’ was selected to this year’s TIFF! The festival will happen from September 07 till September 17.
