The film is still being completed and will be seven minutes. It will include information on the car including specs but will not contain pricing information.
The DVD also offers behind-the-scenes footage featuring interviews with the director and stuntman and a "Choose your own view" feature that lets the user watch full-length, unedited runs from eight camera angles.
Nissan partnered with The Designory, Long Beach, CA, and Creative Domain based in Hollywood to produce "The Run."
