Randy Moore's directorial debut Escape from Tomorrow was one of the most talked-about films at the Sundance Film Festival this year, especially since this sci-fi fantasy adventure was secretly shot at DisneyWorld and DisneyLand resorts. Today we have the first trailer, giving fans who weren't at Sundance a chance to see what all the fuss is about. The story centers on a middle-aged husband who is on vacation at a theme park, where he becomes obsessed with two young girls from Paris. We also have the latest poster, which obviously pokes a little fun at the Disney resorts, with a bloody twist. Escape from Tomorrow debuts in select theaters and on VOD formats October 11.
The most provocative film from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Escape from Tomorrow should not exist, and yet it does. Like nothing you've ever seen, Randy Moore's directorial debut is a bold and ingenious trip into the happiest place on earth.
An epic battle begins when a middle-aged American husband and father of two learns that he has lost his job. Keeping the news from his nagging wife and wound-up children, he packs up the family and embarks on a full day of park hopping amid enchanted castles and fairytale princesses. Soon, the manufactured mirth of the fantasy land around him begins to haunt his subconscious. An idyllic family vacation quickly unravels into a surrealist nightmare of paranoid visions, bizarre encounters, and an obsessive pursuit of a pair of sexy teenage Parisians. Chillingly shot in black and white, Escape from Tomorrow dissects the mythology of artificial perfection while subversively attacking our culture's obsession with mass entertainment.
