Honestly... This is amazing news. I loved the first one.
What started off as nothing but a simple Saw & Cube hybrid, packed enough of a bloody punch to spin off into it's own franchise. Escape Room was a 2019 horror film that gave us a much needed return to a missed formula. With many fans anxiously waiting for the Escape Room 2, we began to wonder if it would ever actually release. Original slated for release on April 17th of 2020, the pandemic forced Sony Pictures to move back the film to 2021, THEN moved it again to 2022.
BUT... GOOD NEWS!
With the ongoing successful reopening of movie theaters across the country, Sony has decided to release the film on July 16th, 2021... YES! Finally, the world appears to be returning to a fit enough state to release new films in theaters. This is honestly super exciting for now only Escape Room fans, but movie fans in general. We hope to see other pushed back films to return to a normal release schedule following this news.
Escape Room stars Logan Miller and Taylor Russell will be returning for the sequel.
Isabelle Fuhrman , Holland Roden, Indya Moore, Thomas Cocquerel and Carlito Olivero also star.
The franchise follows strangers who find themselves in what appear to be a fun Escape Room, but turns out to be a maze filled with difficult puzzles and deadly consequences.
