Prepared to whip it good? All of you Drew Barrymore, Ellen Page, Kristen Wiig, and/or roller derby fans, get ready to rumble right into your local movie theaters for a sneak preview of the action-packed dramedy Whip It this Saturday night, 09/26 (check your local theaters for exact showtimes and ticketing). Besides getting your roller rink jones on, you'll be able to see how Drew Barrymore fares as a first-time director, and find out what the fuss was about for this sleeper hit of the Toronto Film Festival. The story involves Juno hero Ellen Page and her transition from small-town Texas beauty pageant contestant to rough-and-ready derby queen. Lending her a hand and a few helpful elbow shoves is supremely named mentor Malice in Wonderland (Kristen Wiig).
Need another reason to see Whip It this Saturday? No problem, dolls and dudes. Everyone who attends this advance showing will receive a FREE Whip It T-shirt at the screening. That's right...we're saying the word free. So, ready to rock? We thought so.
