Escape from Tomorrow

Just last month we learned the buzzed about indie Escape from Tomorrow, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January was surprisingly heading to theaters courtesy of Producers Distribution Agency (in partnership with Abramaorama and FilmBuff) starting October 11th at New York City’s IFC Center and a VOD release on a variety of outlets. The film was secretly shot at Disney World, and it was thought the House of Mouse would stop the film from getting released. Now the film is moving full steam ahead with a hype machine that kicks off with this clever but misleading poster using a recognizable cartoon hand covered in blood. But the film isn't animated and has nothing to do with the implied character. Look!

Here's the first poster for Randy Moore's Escape from Tomorrow via The Film Stage:

Escape from Tomorrow

Escape from Tomorrow is written and directed by Randy Moore. The film, secretly shot at Disney World, is described as a postmodern, surreal voyage into the bowels of "family" entertainment as a middle-aged father loses his sanity during a close encounter with two teenage girls on holiday, all while trying to keep a straight face with his family after losing his job on the first day of vacation. Roy Abramsohn, Elena Schuber, Katelynn Rodriguez, Annet Mahendru, Danielle Safady and Alison Lees-Taylor star in the film which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and arrives in limited theaters starting on October 11th.
