Escape From Tomorrow, the film secretly shot at the Disney theme parks, will be shown next year in select theaters and available as a cable VOD release from PDA, the distribution division of Cinetic Media. Escape was shown at the Sundance Film Festival and received quite a bit of press due to the nature of its filming. Director Randy Moore created the edgy film, which "follows a businessman who struggles to enjoy the last days of his Disney vacation with his family after he's fired on the phone, leading to all kinds of surreal and uncomfortable situations." Moore's film was shot completely in secret, using only a bare-bones film crew, regular cameras and hidden microphones. Actors were not even given scripts, instead their lines were sent to them on their phones, so as to not arise suspicion while filming in the parks. Speculation was that the film would never be released, for fear that Disney would send their lawyers after the filmmakers. The film's release date is set for October 11, 2014.
