Whip It Rolls Onto Blu-ray This January…

Whip ItThe press tagline reads…”Ditching the beauty pageant circuit, a rebellious teenager finds her own ‘tribe’ and uncovers an unshakable bond with her mother.”  And here I was hoping Whip It would be about girl-on-girl physical confrontations, bumping and tumbling in the world of roller derby games.  Despite my forecasts, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will bring the roller derby drama home to the Blu-ray format on January 26th.  Whip It stars Academy Award nominee Ellen Page and showcases Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut.  Check out the full press release below from Fox on what goodies you can expect to find on the Blu-ray edition of Whip It.  Personally, I am hoping for some wild action scenes and also some great roller skating sequences, but of course.

    This was a much better movie than I expected it to be. Not great, but solidly entertaining and well acted, and Barrymore proves herself a capable director.

    Cool! Good to hear! I am looking forward to hopefully reviewing this on Blu-ray for Fox.
