Battle Of The Sexes To Get European Premiere At 2017 BFI London Film Festival

Battle Of The Sexes, starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell, will be this year’s American Express Gala at this year’s BFI London Film 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 and Jonathan Dayton, and the legendary Billie Jean King expected to attend.

There will also 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.
