The film will receive its European premiere on Saturday 07 October at London’s Odeon Leicester Square, with Emma Stone, Andrea Riseborough, Elisabeth Shue, and the legendary Billie Jean King expected to attend. 

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 this year’s American Express Gala.

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.
