In Australia, fans of the genre may already view filmmaker Adam Robitel’s sequel to his 2019 horror-thriller Escape Room (see it HERE), titled Escape Room: Tournament of Champions, but we still have a few days to wait for it in other countries. The film, for example, will not be released in the United States until July 16th. As the world awaits the release of Tournament of Champions, we’ve obtained a small clip from the film that sets the scene: the characters in this one have survived prior deadly escape room games. In a passage of discussion, one of them even reads the film’s subtitle aloud. In the embed above, you can view this footage, followed by the trailer. IMDB
Escape Room: Tournament of Champions is a film written by Will Honley, Oren Uziel, Maria Melnik, and Daniel Tuch based on a story by Honley, Christine Lavaf, and Fritz Bohm. It follows six people who find themselves trapped in another series of escape rooms, gradually uncovering what they have in common in order to survive… and discovering they’ve all played the game before. Indya Moore, Holland Roden, Isabelle Fuhrman, Carlito Olivero, Thomas Cocquerel, and James Frain join Taylor Russell and Logan Miller from the first film in the cast. Neal H. Moritz directed Escape Room: Tournament of Champions. Along with Karina Rahardja and Philip Waley, Robitel acted as executive producer.
