Battle of the Sexes Trailer #1 (2017) “Game On!”

*Text from Coming Soon
Fox Searchlight Pictures has revealed a new international trailer for Battle of the Sexes, telling the story of the infamous tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell, the electrifying 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King (Stone) and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Carell) was billed as the Battle of the Sexes and became the most watched televised sports event of all time. The match caught the zeitgeist and sparked a global conversation on gender equality, spurring on the feminist movement. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. With a supportive husband urging her to fight the Establishment for equal pay, the fiercely private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past. Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis courts and animated the discussions between men and women in bedrooms and boardrooms around the world.

Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, creators of the Oscar-winning Little Miss Sunshine and indie favorite Ruby Sparks, the film also stars Elisabeth Shue, Sarah Silverman, Alan Cumming, Andrea Riseborough , Eric Christian Olsen, Natalie Morales, Austin Stowell, Wallace Langham, Jessica McNamee, Mickey Sumner  and Bill Pullman.

Battle of the Sexes will debut in theaters September 22.

Trailer Time: Despicable Me 3 Trailer #2 (2017) *Of COURSE He Has a Twin Brother*

I really liked the first Despicable Me a whole lot more than I thought I would.  Despicable Me 2 was just a blast and boosted me into Minion Mania!  Then Minions came out, and I was over the whole thing and was hoping it would all just…..aaaaand Gru has a twin brother.  His name is Dru.  They look like pudgier versions of the Woody Harrelson twins introduced in Now You See Me 2.  That was a franchise killer.  Just saying.  Despicable Me 3 releases June 30, 2017.
