After writer-director Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash had a successful night as the opening film for Sundance, Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions acquired rights to several international territories to the movie.

Whiplash, starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons, is adapted from a short film that won the jury award for fiction at last year’s festival. The movie follows new college student Andrew (Teller) as he struggles to become the core drummer of an esteemed jazz orchestra with the help of a tough instructor (Simmons).
