I actually think Battle of the Sexes has more potential, if only for the reason that its subject has more to tell us about the current times than the Borg-Mac rivalry which is likely little more than a fanboy showcase. Just try to count how many people you've seen who were adamant, however correctly, that Riggs threw away the match. They just can't accept that a woman might have bested a man in one of his traditionally dominant spheres, and feel they must fight this perceived threat.There are different versions of the trailer, the Swedish version has the title as Borg, the German version has it as Borg/McEnroe.
This looks unlikely to get a significant US release(still doesn't even have a distributor) probably will be a VOD title, since it seems rather arty. How it fares at film festivals will be key(good reviews might interst someone like IFC)
While Battle of the Sexes has a major distributor and 2 big stars. And looks incredibly mainstream in comparison.
I'd much rather see Borg McEnroe. Hope labeouf doesn't screw it up, he seems out of place compared to the rest of the trailer.
Hey, don't misunderestimate Dayton & Faris. According to them venerable RT hotshots Armadillo is only 90% fresh vs. Little Miss Sunshine's 91%. In tennis terms that's like a 5% difference in service games won.While there's not much to go on right now, I'd rather see what this director(heard good things about armadillo) does with Borg than what the little miss sunshine crew does with battle of the sexes. Even if it does end up being fanboyesque. Plus visually it looks amazing.
