Short 'n Sweet Behind-the-Scenes Featurette for Whip It
Who wouldn't want to watch a bunch of normally sweet girls beating each other up in a roller rink, I mean come on, this looks so awesome! Apple has debuted a rather short, but sweet, behind-the-scenes featurette for Drew Barrymore's Whip It starring Ellen Page. The trailer for this hit back in July and the film itself debuts up in Toronto this month, so you'll probably be hearing about it a lot in the next few weeks. I don't even care that this looks cheesy or anything, I'm excited to see it, it looks like a good story packed with a lot of dirty fun, I'm expecting to have a great time. And as for Barrymore directing, she doesn't look half bad!

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.
