Battle of the Sexes came to select theaters this week and will get a nationwide release September 29th! We’ve been following this one closely, and you can bet on an upcoming review once we’ve all had a chance to watch. Emma Stone plays the role of tennis legend Billie Jean King, while Steve Carell is her opponent, Bobby Riggs. AfterEllen was fortunate enough to snag an exclusive clip from the press junket, with Billie Jean King asking Emma Stone a question about playing her in the film. Watch:
