WestMidWest Productions has announced that it will premiere the highly anticipated “Revenge of the Electric Car” trailer exclusively on Facebook as soon as the forthcoming film’s Facebook Fan page acquires its 10,000th fan.
“Revenge of the Electric Car” is the new feature documentary film about electric cars by Chris Paine, director of the 2006 film, “Who Killed the Electric Car?” Slated for release in early 2011, “Revenge of the Electric Car” 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, documenting the high-stakes race to be the first to bring electric vehicles to the masses.
Fans of Paine’s first documentary on electric cars have been in touch with the filmmakers through email, phone, the film’s website, Facebook, Twitter, community groups, non-profit organizations, and more.

“We’ve developed a loyal and passionate community of electric car enthusiasts, environmentalists, and other fans of ‘Who Killed the Electric Car?’ over the years,” says Paine. “It only makes sense to share the first public release of the trailer with fans and friends first, through an outlet where they connect to each other.”
The filmmakers have also added features to the “Revenge of the Electric Car” website that allow those die-hard fans of electric cars to connect, including the ability of fans who have “taken revenge” for the electric car by converting their own car or starting an electric car business to submit their own stories; and even a way to request the film in their city.
WestMidWest Productions is a Chicago-based film production company, producing “Revenge of the Electric Car” and distributing the film in early 2011.
