Amusing Second Trailer for Tennis Showdown Film 'Battle of the Sexes'

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.

‘The Book of Henry’ Review: Naomi Watts’ Family Drama Has the Most Ludicrous Twist of the Year

14 June 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Before it takes a bizarre dark twist that would make M. Night Shyamalan bristle with envy, “The Book of Henry” is a very familiar sort of family drama: Single mother Susan (Naomi Watts) juggles a thankless waitressing gig with caring for her two young children. One them, 11-year-old Henry (Jaeden Lieberher) exhibits above-average intelligence, managing the family finances and providing a practical voice to offset Susan’s chaotic personal life. Henry’s idiosyncratic personality leads to a number of whimsical, bittersweet exchanges. Somebody gets cancer, and the movie becomes a painfully obvious tearjerker.

And then, quite suddenly, the sentimentalism gives way to Hitchcockian suspense, and the most ludicrous conceit of any American movie this year. It’s a high-stakes gamble that doesn’t quite pay off, and at times courts disaster, but it’s fascinating to watch the movie go there.

That’s due, in part, to the conditions surrounding its existence. »

'Dirty Dancing' Fans Had Some Harsh Words for New Remake -- Check Out the Best Twitter Reactions

24 May 2017 8:59 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

ABC's Dirty Dancing remake aired Wednesday, and fans had a lot to say about the dubious redux -- and not a lot of it was super positive. However, that didn't stop the wave of feedback from being super funny.

The musical, which is a remake of the beloved 1987 romantic drama, starred Colt Prattes as Johnny Castle -- a role originated by Patrick Swayze -- and Abigail Breslin as Frances "Baby" Houseman -- first portrayed by Jennifer Grey.

Watch: Review: 'Dirty Dancing' Remake Is Less About Dancing, More About Singing -- Let's Break It Down!

Many fans of the original were apprehensive before the remake even hit the airwaves, and their response during and after the debut was swift and furious.

"What Is This Abomination @ABCNetwork I Demand A Thousand Apologies For This! #DirtyDancing We Did Nothing To Deserve This!!" one Twitter user exclaimed.

Review: 'Dirty Dancing' Remake Is Less About Dancing, More About Singing -- Let's Break It Down!

24 May 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Nobody should make a Dirty Dancing reboot…

But if you're going to, do it right.

Before you read any further, know that I really did try to give ABC's musical adaptation a chance, I did. There have been plenty of remakes of classical hits over the past few years -- some which were not so great, but others, like Grease: Live, that were wonderfully done and satisfied almost all of the viewers who tuned in. Of course, whenever you hear the news that one of your favorite movies of All Time is going to be remade, there's that moment of excitement -- "Yes! I am pumped for this!" -- followed by fear -- "Wait, what if this goes terribly wrong?"

So after hearing who would take on the beloved roles of Patrick Swayze's Johnny Castle (newcomer Colt Prattes) and Jennifer Grey's Baby Houseman (Little Miss Sunshine herself, Abigail Breslin), I told »

Toni Collette Options “The Best of Adam Sharp”

24 May 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Toni Collette in “United States of Tara

Toni Collette has nabbed the rights to Graeme Simsion’s novel and screenplay for “The Best of Adam Sharp,” Deadline reports. The romance marks Collette’s first project under her newly-launched production company with Jen Turner, Vocab Films.

Published earlier this year, “The Best of Adam Sharp” centers on an unhappily married man who’s nearing 50. Adam “can’t quite forget a romance he had 20 years ago with an intelligent and strong-willed woman named Angelina Brown who taught him what it meant to find — and then lose — love,” Deadline summarizes. “He wonders how different his life would be if he hadn’t let her go. Out of the blue, he gets a one word email from Angelina. He responds and his life takes a significant turn.”

Golden Globe and Emmy winner Collette would take on the role of Angelina. She previously served as a co-executive producer on “United States of Tara,” a Showtime series she also starred in about a woman with dissociative identity disorder. The show was created by “Juno” screenwriter Diablo Cody and ran from 2009–2011.

“I’ve recently realized that I really am a feminist,” Collette said in 2013. “For years people would say to me, ‘You are! You are! You really are!’ And I’d say, ‘No, I’m not. I’m a humanist. I think it’s sexist to say I’m a feminist.’ Now, I see a great imbalance not only in my industry, but also in the world at large. I want to change it,” she explained.

Collette received an Oscar nomination in 2000 for “The Sixth Sense.” Her other credits include “Miss You Already,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” and “Muriel’s Wedding.”

Toni Collette Options “The Best of Adam Sharp” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Remaking ‘Dirty Dancing’: How the TV Movie Turned into Summer Camp for the Cast

23 May 2017 7:05 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It’s the perfect summer day in western North Carolina -- sunny, breezy and warm with blues skies reflecting against the lake and stretching for miles over rolling green meadows -- and entering the grounds of the country club, a giant “Kellerman’s Lodge” sign greets you from the golf course. Couples in starched, pastel outfits sit in rocking chairs on the porch waiting on cues from the director, while a dance coach run moves on the practice log that hovers twelve inches above the ground. The set of ABC’s highly anticipated Dirty Dancing musical reimagining -- starring Little Miss Sunshine’s Abigail Breslin as Baby and Colt Prattes as Johnny Castle -- is the fancy summer camp experience of your dreams and the cast has bonded tightly just like kids at the end of the season.

It’s understandable how close they’ve come -- besides being stuck in a remote mountain paradise for weeks »

Author: Scott Davis

The first trailer for the hugely anticipated dramedy biopic Battle of the Sexes has arrived and you can view it in the player below.

The film chronicles the story of famous tennis match from the early 1970s which saw Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs take on Billie Jean King in one of the biggest and most-watched sporting events ever broadcast on television. Academy Award Winner Emma Stone (La La Land, Birdman) stars as King, the famous tennis player who had to struggle with the fight for equal pay as well as her own personal demons with her sexuality.

Steve Carell (Foxcatcher, Despicable Me 3) plays Riggs, a former champion who is desperate to reclaim his “crown” and become a star once again. The film, from the directors of Little Miss Sunshine and Ruby Sparks, is set for a prime Awards season spot later this year.

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.”

First poster and trailer for Battle of the Sexes starring Steve Carell and Emma Stone

The first trailer and poster have debuted for the upcoming tennis biopic Battle of the Sexes. Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine), the film stars Steve Carell and Emma Stone as Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King, and tells the story of highly-publicised 1973 inter-gender match between the two tennis players; take a look below…

“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 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 »

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

16 May 2017 12:29 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"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 »
