Fox Searchlight has released a brand new poster for their upcoming film Whip It, the directorial debut of Drew Barrymore. It features a look at the probably heroic Ellen Page, who plays Bliss Cavendar, an indie-rock loving Texan teen who deals with her small-town misery by joining up with a roller derby league in Austin. The poster, which can be seen below, urges you to be your own hero. I don’t know about all that, but it looks as if Ellen Page is searching for a way to become her own hero. Foreshadowing? Probably.

What excites me about this film is the cast — Page is joined by Kristen Wiig, Drew Barrymore, Juliette Lewis, Zoe Bell, Alia Shawkat, Marcia Gay Harden and Daniel Stern. Yes, the Daniel Stern from Home Alone. The film looks like fun, as evidence by the trailer — which I’ve been so kind as to embed below the poster. So once you’re done clicking that, enlarging it and checking it out, do yourself a favor and watch the trailer.

Whip It is in theaters October 9, 2009.
