Must Watch: First Badass Trailer for Ellen Page's Whip It!
Fox Searchlight has just debuted the trailer for Whip It! starring Ellen Page, Drew Barrymore, and Juliette Lewis. This is that roller derby movie we featured some badass photos from only last week. It looks a little bit different than I was expecting, but still as badass as I had hoped it would be. I hate to make this kind of comparison, but it actually feels a lot like Adventureland, in terms of being a hometown kind of coming-of-age movie with that very indie feel to it. That's not a bad thing, and I'm still certainly very excited to see it. Ellen Page looks great, as always, and the supporting cast looks wonderful as well. Fire this bad boy up!

Whip It!, which is not about that Devo song, is the feature directing debut of actor Drew Barrymore. The screenplay was written by Shauna Cross, of only Taking 5 previously. Cross also wrote the book that this is based on and plays roller derby as well. Fox Searchlight is bringing Whip It! to theaters on October 2nd.
