“Revenge of the Electric Car” is a new feature documentary film about electric cars by Chris Paine, director of the 2006 film, slated for release in early 2011. The film tells a new story of the global resurgence of electric vehicles and takes audiences behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors.
The film’s production company, WestMidWest Productions, plans to self-distribute the film instead of relying on a larger studio for the release: a new trend in films released outside of the traditional studio system.
Late November the filmmakers for “Revenge of the Electric Car” announced that the highly anticipated trailer for the film will have its world premiere online when the film’s Facebook Fan page gets its 10,000th fan.
They have their 10,000 fans and we can now show you the trailer:
