Sony Pictures has revealed the first trailer for the thriller movie “Escape Room 2,” today. The film will arrive in theaters on July 16, 2021.
The sequel to the 2019 psychological thriller was supposed to arrive on Jan. 7, 2022, but it was moved up by six months in April.
Escape Room: Tournament of Champions is the sequel to the box office hit psychological thriller that terrified audiences around the world. In this installment, six people unwittingly find themselves locked in another series of escape rooms, slowly uncovering what they have in common to survive…and discovering they’ve all played the game before.
The first “Escape Room” film follows six strangers who are brought together to participate in an escape room game, but soon learn they are pawns in a puzzle that could lead to life or death. The strangers solve clues and riddles to move from one horrifying scenario to the next and eventually discover that they may have to expose their deepest, darkest secrets to survive.
The original film’s director, Adam Robitel, and producer Neal H. Moritz have returned for the second installment. Leads Taylor Russell and Logan Miller will also repeat their roles, joined by a cast including Indya Moore, Holland Roden, Isabelle Fuhrman, Carlito Olivero, Thomas Cocquerel, and James Frain. “Escape Room 2” is executive produced by Robitel, Karina Rahardja, and Philip Waley, with a screenplay by Will Honley, Maria Melnik, and Daniel Tuch from a story by Honley, Christine Lavaf, and Fritz Bohm.
The first “Escape Room” was a hit at the box office, earning $155 million. “Godzilla vs. Kong” recently raked in the largest box office gross during the pandemic with $31 million, and this past weekend featured a fierce box office battle between “Mortal Kombat” and “Demon Slayer,” signaling to the industry that moviegoers are certainly eager to return to theaters.
