Trailer for Escape From Tomorrow

Posted September 12th, 2013 at 12:45 pm


The first trailer has arrived for Escape from Tomorrow. What makes this film especially unique is that it was filmed entirely on Disney theme park grounds without permission. That has led some to believe it won’t actually get an official release, or Disney will file a massive lawsuit against the filmmakers, but so far things are in line for it to come out on October 11. It has already screened at Sundance where it got generally good reviews and picked up the distributor.

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 and darkly comic 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.
