Short White Shorts & The Dicks That Fill Them

It was way back in September that we first heard that Shia LaBeouf was going to make a movie called Borg/McEnroe about the tennis rivalry between John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg (with Sweidsh-Icelandic actor Sverrir Gudnason playing the latter) and not long thereafter the above image showed up but we've only seen it now for the first time as it comes along with the trailer for the film. Well the German trailer anyway. But you know what International trailers mean right? That's right...

... they mean nudity! We love nudity! I'm actually not sure which of our leads that is naked in the shower though - my first thought was it's Gudnason but the longer I look (and I have looked for a long time) the less sure I am. Anyway here's the trailer:

Weirdly there's another movie about tennis rivalries of the 1970s coming out this year that released a trailer this week (I guess it's this year's Volcano versus Dante's Peak showdown) -- Battle of the Sexes stars Emma Stone as Billie Jean King and Steve Carrell as the sexist pig monster Bobby Riggs, who faced off in an infamous Penis Vs Vagina showdown in 1973. Nathaniel did a good run-down of the trailer over at The Film Experience yesterday, go read it over there, but the main thing to know is that Andrea Riseborough is playing Emma Stone's girlfriend and that's all you need to know about whether you're seeing this movie or not. (You are.)
