Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for Battle of the Sexes.

The ripped-from-the-headlines story stars Emma Stone and Steve Carell as Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, respectively. The 1973 tennis match between world No. 1 King and retired champ and serial hustler Riggs that became one of the most-watched televised sporting events of all time. The match sparked a global conversation on gender equality, spurring on the feminist movement, while King and Riggs fought more personal and complex battles - King with her sexuality and her plight for equal pay, and Riggs with protecting his reputation while reliving his glory days.

Alan Cumming, Andrea Riseborough, Elizabeth Shue, Austin Stowell and Sarah Silverman round out the cast of the Simon Beaufoy-penned dramedy, directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.

Battle of the Sexes hits theaters Sept. 22.
