Now that the COVID-19 pandemic seems to be more or less under control and the leisure activities we love and miss so much start to open to the public again it is a good moment to see a group of people using those amusement centers, even if they go wrong. Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021) is the sequel of Escape Room (2019), a movie centering on six strangers who find themselves in a maze of deadly mystery rooms and must use their wits to survive.
The plot for the sequel of this psychological horror repeats the same premise as the original film. This time, the six people unwittingly find themselves locked in another series of escape rooms, slowly uncovering what they have in common to survive. Joining forces with two of the original survivors, they soon discover they’ve all played the game before.
Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021) has been directed by Adam Robitel, who was also in charge of the first one. He is known for his debut horror-thriller The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014), and for being responsible for Insidious: The Last Key (2018). He will also be behind the cameras in the upcoming title of the saga, Insidious: The Dark Realm (2021).
The screenplay for the movie has been written by Will Honley, Oren Uziel, Maria Melnik, and Daniel Tuch, from a story conceived by Christine Lavaf and Fritz Bohm.
Taylor Russell, Logan Miller, Thomas Cocquerel, Holland Roden, Indya Moore, Carlito Olivero, Jay Erving, James Frain, and Tanya van Graan form the main cast.
Sony Pictures Releasing, owner of the distribution rights for Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021), had originally scheduled the movie to be released on April 17, 2020. The date was subsequently changed several times, being set as the definitive July 16, 2021. Here you can watch its official trailer.
