PanARMENIAN.Net - A new trailer for “Escape From Tomorrow” has been unveiled.
Randy Moore’s buzzy Sundance thriller was shot in secret in Disney parks with a distinctly non-Disneyfied tale of dread and paranoia in the happiest place on Earth, according to Deadline.
“Shot on the fly but with no jittery sense of nerves or panic, Escape documents the final day of a typical family of four’s vacation at Disney’s enormous Orlando park. Before setting out from the hotel, however, big-gutted dad Jim (Roy Abramsohn), gets a call notifying him he’s fired. Keeping the news to himself so as not to spoil the day, he, constantly badgering wife Emily (Elena Schuber) and cute blond kids Elliot (Jack Dalton) and little Sara (Katelynn Rodriguez) hop on the monorail and start hitting the highlights, beginning with the girly rides,” The Hollywood Reporter said.
The distribution trifecta of Producers Distribution Agency (PDA), Abramorama, and FilmBuff will release Escape From Tomorrow in theaters on October 11 as well as on VOD and digital platforms, although nobody’s yet talking about how the pic’s skirting Disney’s legal muscle.
“It’s safe to say that anyone who sees Escape From Tomorrow will never again perceive a family-friendly amusement park in quite the same way. A bizarre, sophomoric, hallucinatory, sometimes funny and often an undisciplined prank, Randy Moore’s first feature is most notable as a gutsy provocation for having been shot surreptitiously at Disney World. The film’s immediate future will largely be determined by Disney’s disposition toward the enterprise, whether the company decides it’s such small potatoes that they’ll just let it slide or slap an injunction on it to delay or prevent official distribution. A fringy undertaking by any standards, this one-off could find life after film festivals as a midnighter and with college students into the weird and trippy and surreal,” a review published at The Hollywood Reporter said.
