Those of you waiting to see "Revenge of the Electric Car," mark your calendars. The public premiere of the long-in-the-works sequel of sorts to the classic Who Killed The Electric Car? will take place at the Tribeca Film Festival on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2011 in New York City.

Director Chris Paine's movie, which tells the (hopefully amazing) story of "3 carmakers and 1 converter as they race to bring their electric cars to market" will be the Spotlight feature documentary at the TFF's opening weekend and will also be shown a few other times throughout the festival. After this, the movie will hit the road based on the squeaky wheel strategy. A statement released by the moviemakers says:

The filmmakers have been receiving a large amount of emails from fans asking when the film will be playing near them, and so far the only answer we can give is "as soon as we can!" After the film's premiere at Tribeca, we'll be mapping out our release strategy to bring the film to the cities with the most requests for it first.

Want to try and get your town on that list? Head on down to the Revenge website, where you can exchange your email address for a request. We'll see you at the show.

The filmmakers for "Revenge of the Electric Car" are very happy to announce that the film will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2011 in New York City.

"Revenge of the Electric Car" is the new feature documentary film about electric cars from Chris Paine, director of the 2006 success, "Who Killed the Electric Car?" The new film tells the story of how the plug-in car as come back from the dead in just a few short years, going behind the scenes for 3 years with 3 carmakers and 1 converter as they race to bring their electric cars to market. With gas prices rising around the world again in monetary and environmental terms, many drivers want alternatives.

Tribeca announced that "Revenge of the Electric Car" will make its grand debut during the opening weekend as its Spotlight feature documentary. The filmmakers are especially excited to be premiering at such a prestigious festival. "For many people, this is year 1 of the electric car," said director Chris Paine. "For us to be playing at Tribeca in New York on Earth Day is a great sign that the electric car revolution is are more then just a great story, it's our future with less imported oil."

After the Earth Day premiere, the film will have a handful of other screenings at the Tribeca Film Festival. Tickets to those screenings will go on sale at the festival's website within the next few weeks.

The filmmakers have been receiving a large amount of emails from fans asking when the film will be playing near them, and so far the only answer we can give is "as soon as we can!" After the film's premiere at Tribeca, we'll be mapping out our release strategy to bring the film to the cities with the most requests for it first: http://www.revengeoftheelectriccar.com/see-the-film.html

      Tesla motors, Nissan, Mitsubishi, that's three. What's the conversion?

      For some reason trailer shows Volt, but it is not an electric car, just a hybrid, no more revolutionary than Prius.

        I'm guessing either AMP or the company that makes the Zilla controller.

      Awesome look forward to eventually seeing it.

      Where do I go to vote to keep trash such as this from polluting the movie screens in my town?
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's not run by the government, you don't get to vote on it. You also don't get to vote on any of the other Hollywood offerings, either. It is up to the theater owners to decide which movies to show and for how long, they'll decide mainly on the basis of potential profits, not on the basis of politics.

        So your only option is to not shell out any money for movies you don't like, and that's fine, it leaves seats available for those who do want to see it.

        I think most of you get it, but for the poor liberals on this site, let me point out that "exchanging" your email for a "request " for the movie to be shown in your town is a "vote".

      If it is as ignorant of eonomics and industry as the first one - I'll pass.

      After we shut down all the nukes, close all the gas- and coal-fired generators and explode all the hydro-electric dams, will this little gem of a film be retitled "Dude, Where's My Electricity?"

      Revenge?

      Little premature, there.

      EVs have not proven anything but their own limitations yet.

      Fill'er up with the blend of 50% COAL, 5% wind, 5% solar, 20% nuke and 5% hydro and the rest with bullshit (last one is organic and infinitely renewable).

      should be interesting but I fear it will lack the teeth of the first one thus not make a difference.
      the war is decided, to a very real extent by the first one. but it's not over yet. not even close.
