Columbia Pictures’ Escape Room: Tournament of Champions dropped its first trailer today, paving the way for the thriller sequel’s July 16 theatrical release.
“This is way bigger than last time,” says one of the terrorized characters in the trailer, which begins on a subway ride from hell.
The sequel to the $155M-plus psychological thriller follows six people who 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.
Directed by Adam Robitel from a screenplay by Will Honley, Oren Uziel and Maria Melnik & Daniel Tuch (story by Honley and Christine Lavaf & Fritz Bohm), Escape Room: ToC stars Taylor Russell, Logan Miller, Indya Moore, Holland Roden, Thomas Cocquerel and Carlito Olivero.
The film is produced by Neal H. Moritz, with Adam Robitel, Karina Rahardja and Philip Waley as executive producers.
