Black carpet was rolled out in front of Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Tuesday, September 29 to welcome celebrities coming to the premiere of Drew Barrymore's roller derby comedy drama.

Hollywood has become the host of a unique Los Angeles premiere of "Whip It!". On Tuesday, September 29, black carpet was rolled out in front of Grauman's Chinese Theatre to greet the oncoming celebrities, and it saw members of the L.A. Derby Dolls roller derby team skating down as well as performing stunts.

Black seemed to be the theme for the premiere as majority of the cast attending were seen in a dress or suit that is dominated with the dark color. Drew Barrymore, Ellen Page, Juliette Lewis, Eve, Zoe Bell and Landon Pigg were some of the cast members wearing black for the evening.

Coming also to the special screening event were their fellow cast mates, Alia Shawkat, Andrew Wilson and Daniel Stern, as well as executive producer Nancy Juvonen. Drew's boyfriend Justin Long, "Pineapple Express" actress Amber Heard, and "True Blood" actor Sam Trammell were also present.

Other celebrity guests spotted on the event included "Whiteout" star Kate Beckinsale and her director husband Len Wiseman, Ashley Roberts of The Pussycat Dolls, tennis star Serena Williams, directors Quentin Tarantino and Steven Spielberg, "90210" leading actress Shenae Grimes, and TV personality Olivia Munn.

"Whip It!" is an adaptation film based on Shauna Cross' novel "Derby Girl". The story centers on Bliss, who is groomed for local beauty pageants by ambitious and haughty mother, and has no clue where her life is going. One day, she discovers an underworld roller derby league. Impressed by what she is seeing, Bliss then tries out to join a team named the Hurl Scouts under the name of Babe Ruthless and finds her true self along the way. It will roll its way into U.S. theaters this Friday, October 2.
