Drew Barrymore’s ‘Whip It!’ trailer starring Ellen Page


Whip It!, the upcoming movie that marks Drew Barrymore‘s directorial debut looks like fun. Based on the book Derby Girl by Shauna Cross, the film stars Ellen Page as a Texas teenager named Bliss Cavendar who rebels against her ambitious and haughty mother by joining a female roller derby league.

Actually, I like the trailer. It’s witty, and endearing. And there’s no question that Ellen was a perfect choice for the lead role.

Whip It! also stars Jimmy Fallon, Eve, Kristen Wiig, Marcia Gay Harden, and Juliette Lewis among others. It will roll its way into U.S. theaters October 9.
