Best CGI Movies: Top 10 Sony Imageworks Visual Effects Movies Ranked

7 July 2017 11:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sony Pictures Imageworks, celebrating its 25th anniversary, is unique in Hollywood as the only studio-run visual effects and animation division. Formed in 1992 (now headquartered in Vancouver), Imageworks alternates between live-action/CG hybrids and animation with its younger sister, Sony Pictures Animation, which was founded in 2002.

Imageworks has won two Oscars (“Spider-Man 2” VFX and “The ChubbChubbs!” animated short) along with an Academy Sci-Tech award this year for an advanced shading program. But Imageworks first cut its teeth on “Speed,” “James and the Giant Peach,” “Jumanji,” “Starship Troopers,” and “Contact” before tackling “Stuart Little” in 1999, the first-cg-animated character to star in a live-action feature.

Since then, Imageworks spear-headed performance capture-based virtual production with director Robert Zemeckis (“Polar Express,” “Monster House”), and has continued to work on franchises including “Spider-Man” (“Homecoming” opens this week), “The Smurfs,” and “Hotel Transylvania.”

Here’s our ranking of the 10 best VFX moments from Imageworks:

Emma Stone Reveals Male Co-Stars Took Pay Cut to Ensure Equality: ‘Because They Feel It’s What’s Right’

7 July 2017 6:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In an interview with Out Magazine, Oscar winner Emma Stone revealed that multiple male co-stars have taken lower salaries in order to match her own. “In my career so far, I’ve needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them,” she said.

“And that’s something they do for me because they feel it’s what’s right and fair. That’s something that’s also not discussed, necessarily—that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, “That’s what’s fair.” If my male co-star, who has a higher quote than me but believes we are equal, takes a pay cut so that I can match him, that changes my quote in the future and changes my life.”

23 June 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There's not a single thing I don't hate about Bobby Riggs." Fox Searchlight UK has revealed a new trailer for the indie sports comedy Battle of the Sexes, from the directors of Little Miss Sunshine and Ruby Sparks. Set in the 1970s, the comedy profiles the true story of a wacky tennis match between Emma Stone as tennis champ Billie Jean King, and Steve Carell as chauvinist Bobby Riggs. The match earned attention as a true "battle of the sexes", but there seems to be more going on than just tennis. The full cast includes Elisabeth Shue, Andrea Riseborough, Natalie Morales, Alan Cumming, Eric Christian Olsen, Sarah Silverman, and Martha MacIsaac. This seems very funny and fun to watch, looking forward to it. Here's the second official trailer for Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris's Battle of the Sexes, on YouTube: You can still watch the first official trailer for Battle of the Sexes here, »

New trailer debuts for Oscar hopeful Battle of the Sexes, starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell

22 June 2017 5:04 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

Fox Searchlight Pictures have today debuted a brand new trailer for their upcoming comedy-drama Battle of the Sexes, which you can view in the player below.

Directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, the filmmakers behind Little Miss Sunshine, the film tells the true story of the match between tennis greats Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) and Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) from the 1970’s that was dubbed the “Battle of the Sexes”. The film is produced by Danny Boyle (T2 Trainspotting), amongst others, and is written by Simon Beaufoy, the Academy Award Winning writer of Slumdog Millionaire.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s World #1 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.

The film also stars Andrea Riseborough (Birdman), Sarah Silverman (The Book of Henry), Bill Pullman (Independence Day: Resurgence) and Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) and is set to open in UK cinemas on October 20th.

Megan Ellison’s nascent Annapurna Pictures distribution operation has set MGM’s “Death Wish” reboot, starring Bruce Willis, for a Nov. 22 launch.

“Battle of the Sexes” enters the competition with a Trailer

17 May 2017 4:10 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday, Fox Searchlight began the process of creating excitement for one of their big Oscar hopefuls this year. They did that by dropping the first Trailer for Battle of the Sexes, a pseudo biopic that also could be the rare recent sports related movie to score with the Academy. Done properly, the story contained here is big time awards bait. That all remains to be seen, obviously, but the possibilities here are certainly strong. The Trailer pretty much suggests as much too. You’ll be able to see it at the end of this article, as per the usual, but first…a bit of analysis! The film is a look at the legendary tennis match between champions Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). King was the current number one player in the world in 1973, while Riggs was a former champ and basically a side show act at the time. »

Emma Stone and Steve Carell take the court as Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in the thrilling new trailer for Battle of the Sexes. The film chronicles King and Riggs' famous 1973 tennis match and opens September 22nd.

The new trailer captures the ridiculous media spectacle that surrounded the King-Riggs match-up, as well as its significant cultural underpinnings. While Carell's Riggs – boasting bushy, Seventies-style sideburns – spews all sorts of sexist nonsense and returns lobs with a frying pan, Stone's King fights for her rightful place in the history books and »

Emma Stone and Steve Carell Square Off in First Trailer for ‘The Battle of the Sexes’

16 May 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A chauvinistic goofball attempting to undermine the female population might strike a little too much of a chord in today’s age, but a new sports dramedy depicts just that. The Battle of the Sexes, which captures the 1973 rivalry between Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) has now debuted its first trailer ahead of a fall release by Fox Searchlight.

Coming from Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine, Ruby Sparks), the trailer sells a relatively light tone when compared to the usually more intense genre of the sports movie. “This was a really important and serious time in the women’s liberation movement, and it was one of the first times that a political issue was acted out in the circus-like atmosphere,” co-director Dayton says to People. “It just felt incredibly relevant to today’s time.”

Emma Stone vs Steve Carell in Tennis in Trailer for 'Battle of the Sexes'

"I'm done talking, let's play!" Yes!! Fox Searchlight has debuted the first trailer for the indie sports comedy Battle of the Sexes, the latest feature from the directors of Little Miss Sunshine and Ruby Sparks. The comedy stars Emma Stone and Steve Carell and is set in the 1970s, based on the true story of a wacky tennis match between these two individuals. The name is spot on - it was (and still is) a "battle of the sexes", but the spunky awkwardness of the whole thing makes for hilarious moments for us to now enjoy on the big screen. The cast includes Elisabeth Shue, Andrea Riseborough, Natalie Morales, Alan Cumming, Eric Christian Olsen, Sarah Silverman, and Martha MacIsaac. This looks as good as I was hoping, perhaps even better, can't wait to see it. I dig the vintage Fox Searchlight logo, and I love the poster as well. Here's »

Emma Stone Vs. Steve Carell in Battle of the Sexes Trailer

16 May 2017 12:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the first trailer, poster and photos for Battle of the Sexes, starring Steve Carell and Emma Stone. This biopic reunites both actors after having previously shared the big screen in 2010's Crazy Stupid Love. This time around, there is no love lost between their characters, two tennis rivals who decide to settle their differences on the court, in a nationally televised match that would change the sport forever.

What fans don't see in this trailer from Fox Searchlight is that Steve Carell's Bobby Riggs had already won the first Battle of the Sexes on Mother's Day 1973, although it isn't clear if that will be shown in this new biopic. After Billie Jean King turned down his first challenge, Margaret Court, who at the time was the top-ranked female player in the world, stepped in to face the 55-year-old tennis veteran, but he easily beat her in straight sets. »

Emma Stone and Steve Carell star in Battle Of The Sexes. And a new poster joins the recent trailer...

Update

Here's the latest poster for Battle Of The Sexes, starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell...

And here's the latest trailer from the end of June, following the debut trailer in May...

Previously...

In 1973, it really was hailed as the battle of the sexes: a tennis match between a woman in her prime who won several grand slams and a slew of titles against an old tennis champ who, despite being more than 25 years older than her, claimed he could still beat her because men are naturally better. 

The tennis exhibition match with a grand prize of $100,000 in the middle is still one of the sport’s most viewed events and made Billie Jean King a feminist legend when she put a cork in the mouth »

Trailer Watch: Emma Stone Tackles Sexism on the Tennis Court in “Battle of the Sexes”

16 May 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Battle of the Sexes

“I had a great idea,” Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) tells Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) over the phone in the new trailer for “Battle of the Sexes.” “‘Male Chauvinist Pig versus Hairy-Legged Feminist.’ You’re still a feminist, right?” Completely over it, Billie Jean replies, “I’m a tennis player who happens to be a woman.”

“By the way, I shave my legs,” she informs the self-proclaimed sexist before hanging up on him.

Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton’s (“Little Miss Sunshine”) upcoming comedy is based on the true story of King v. Riggs, the much-hyped 1973 tennis match — also known as “the Battle of the Sexes” — that became a cultural shorthand for women’s rights, especially as they pertain to sports.

The footage gives us glimpses of Riggs’ obnoxious behavior, Billie Jean’s burgeoning romance with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough, “Birdman”), and some good old-fashioned shit-talking between the opponents. “Keep talking, Bobby,” Billie Jean laughs during a press conference. “The more nonsense you spout, the worse it’s gonna be when you lose.”

Written by Simon Beaufoy (“127 Hours”) and co-starring Sarah Silverman, Elisabeth Shue, and Alan Cumming, “Battle of the Sexes” hits theaters September 22. Check out its trailer and poster below.

Emma Stone and Steve Carell In First Trailer For Tennis Drama Battle Of The Sexes

With The French Open and Wimbledon right around the corner, the Grand slam matches are on the minds of every tennis fan.

Today, Fox Searchlight Pictures has released this first trailer for the upcoming film Battle Of The Sexes.

The electrifying 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-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. 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 opposite 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, »

Battle of the Sexes: It's Emma Stone vs. Steve Carell in This True Story

In 1973, tennis stars Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs agreed to play against one another in a highly publicized match billed as "The Battle of the Sexes." Decades later, Crazy Stupid Love costars Emma Stone and Steve Carell are reuniting to play King and Riggs in a movie that looks like a shoo-in for award season praise. Be sure to prepare yourself for good-guy Carell's portrayal of the chauvinistic, showboating Riggs. Stone may have another Oscar-winning role with feminist icon King, who - spoiler alert - ends up defeating Riggs in the match.
