Sundance: ‘Medical incident’ causes commotion on Main Street during ‘Divinity’ world premiere

There was a lot of buzz leading up to Eddie Alcazar’s world premiere on Saturday night Divinity at the Egyptian Theater in Park City, and by the time the showing ended there were also flashing red lights on the stage.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that a “medical incident” occurred during the official screening of the Sundance Film Festival, but despite previous reports, it was not as serious as it initially appeared. “The individual was treated and acquitted,” says a representative of the film THR. “Nobody went into labor. And the movie hasn’t stopped.”

Another source confirmed it was a “medical incident” but added that the individual was able to walk out and receive treatment. They would be in stable condition.

deadline first reported news of the medical emergency, indicating it was a woman who went into labor during screening. That turned out to be untrue when a local law enforcement official told the site that “wires were crossed on the walkie-talkies as to what actually happened.”

THR followed up by the Park City Police Department, but heard nothing more at the time of writing.

Executive produced by Steven Soderbergh, Alcazar’s Divinity is set in an alien human existence as it follows the scientist Sterling Pierce who has dedicated his life to the quest for immortality and slowly created the building blocks of a pioneering serum called “Divinity”. Jaxxon Pierce, his son, now controls and manufactures his father’s once benevolent dream.

Two mysterious brothers arrive with a plan to kidnap the mogul, and with the help of a seductive woman named Nikita, they will be set on a path to true immortality. The movie stars Stephen Dorff, Bella Thorne, Karreuche Tran, Moises Arias, Jason Genao, Scott Bakula and Emily Willis.

Dubbed “truly visionary work” by the festival, audiences at tonight’s world premiere found other adjectives to describe it. Reed Belk called it “bold”, “brilliant”, and “a total mindfuck”. Kevin Wozniak posted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival that it is “easily the wildest and most deranged movie.”

Long before the ambulance arrived, the display began in memorable fashion as guests arrived at their seats in the Egyptian to find swag-esque T-shirts, zines, and VHS boxes. And when Alcazar took the stage, his face was hidden behind a terrifying mask. Divinity next screens tomorrow at Redstone Cinemas.
