"Escape From Tomorrow."

Ever since "Escape From Tomorrow," the black and white indie shot covertly in Disneyland and Disney World, debuted at this year's Sundance, the indie film world has wondered if the notoriously litigious entertainment conglomerate would come after Randy Moore's microbudget film. (It is worthwhile to note that the Columbia University lawyer Tim Wu said at Sundance that Disney wouldn't have a case.)

Now, with "Escape From Tomorrow" in limited release, a ticker has been added to the film's website that announces the amount of weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds since the film has been released and the team behind it has remained lawsuit-free.
