Today we have the trailer for "Escape From Tomorrow," a risky film from first-time director Randy Moore, who shot the film entirely in Disney World and Disneyland. Check out the trailer below.
The problem is that Moore never asked Disney's permission. Instead, he wrote a script, got a bunch of actors and shot the movie using the kind of cameras tourists would bring to the parks. The result is surprisingly good, with no shaky camera-work. Plus, the acting is surpringly decent, and the story is so dark that it's actually the opposite of what Disney is about.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where Disney representative were heard saying that "Escape From Tomorrow" will never be released anywhere. But surprisingly, the studio has yet to sue. In fact, the film has already been acquired for distribution and will be released on October 11th. Of course it's possible that Disney will step in at the last second and crush "Escape From Tomorrow."
For those not familiar with the plot, the movie focuses on a father who takes his family to Disney World. Unfortunately, he finds out that he lost his job on the first day, and as a result, begins to follow two teenage French girls around the park.
Ok, when I come to this site now, as well as it crashing 50% of the time, it's now popping up that girls want to chat to me on girl chat? Anyone else getting this? Pissing me off......what's up with this website?
Some important things that were left out of the article:
Disney can't sue them for filming at their parks. It may be trespassing and the creators will likely be banned for life, but there's nothing they can do once the footage leaves their property.
In terms of copyright, the movie probably falls into the "fair use" category in which you can use copyrighted material if you are satirizing or criticizes it. Since the movie is a satire, it should fall into that ground.
That rumor about Disney representatives at Sundance is probably false since Disney doesn't go to Sundance and the company has barely acknowledged the movies existence.

...probably a publicity stunt to raise awareness of the movie. A false-flag Streisand Effect thing.
