Movie Preview: Drew and Ellen in Whip It


"So what are you, like, alternative now or something?"
"Alternative to what?"

Those images from last week were just a little taste of the Drew Barrymore-directed roller derby comedy Whip It — now there's a full trailer for the movie which gives us Ellen Page in a character that isn't nearly so smart-mouthed or brash as her previous roles. In fact, she's downright meek (and she wears glasses which, in my opinion, are incredibly cute on her)! Page plays Bliss, a quiet misfit who discovers that she's pretty good at roller derby, an "unladylike" activity that serves two purposes: it makes her happy and it annoys her controlling mother (Marcia Gay Harden — yay!). A bunch of other people also star, including Drew Barrymore, Juliette Lewis and Kristen Wiig (yay, again!).

Also, kudos to the trailer creators for using Weezer's "Pork and Beans." Awesome. Whip It opens Oct. 9. To see the trailer,

this looks massively cute, cool, and funny. I actually prefer Ellen Page more meek and soft - and she looks so beautiful! Kristen Wigg and Juliette Lewis look so sexy too with the long, straight hair! I am definitel loving all the components of the movie, except for Drew! I really hate when she plays that crass tomboy; but I guess it works for the movie. I can't wait to see this...

The trailer starts with a Jens Lekman song! I love it. And the "alternative" joke is classic. I had a friend in college who would often solicit my opinion by saying, "So Nancy, you're alternative..."

This looks like it'll be good. I lol'd at the end when they were saying we're number 2 and the guy was like you came in number 2 out of 2 teams, way to go for mediocrity, hahaha.
