Witness the dark side of Disney in the trailer for Escape from Tomorrow
When our very own Chris Bumbray reviewed ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW at the Sundance Film Festival, it seemed it was a daring film that would never see the light of day. Disney was unaware of the film as it was shot guerilla style in their theme parks without consent or permission. The dark nature of the film also would not be in line with the company's family friendly mission, so decapitated robots and demonic patrons would probably not be a good idea for a movie.
Yet Disney has taken no legal action against ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW or director Randy Moore, yet, and a release date in theaters and VOD is slated for October 11th. Now we have a look at the trailer and a very surreal trip to Mickey Mouse's world.
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.
ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW looks impressive for a film shot on an extremely low budget. The visual nature of the movie draws comparisons with directors like Stanley Kubrick, Michel Gondry, and many others. With a month until release, Disney has plenty of time to stop this from getting released. Or, if they are good sports, they will let this small film be viewed as a work of a creative filmmaker and not a strike against their multi-billion dollar profits.
