Smoke Break #886: Theatrical Trailer For New Doc “The Revenge Of The Electric Car”

“In 2006, thousands of new electric cars were purposely destroyed by the same car companies that built them. Today, less than five years later, the electric car is back—with a vengeance. Director Chris Paine gets extraordinary access behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to chronicle the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Do-it-yourself car converter Greg “Gadget” Abbott makes an unforgettable appearance in the film. Tim Robbins narrates.”

Plenty of clips here. Opens October 21st. No local theatres that I know of have picked it up yet, so…bummer.
