ESCAPE ROOM 2 Delayed … Again
Sony’s Escape Room 2 was set to hit on April 17, 2020. Then August 14, 2020. Then December 30, 2020. Then January 1, 2021. Then back to December 30th. And today we hear – go figure – 2 Escape 2 Room moves to “sometime in 2021.”
Whatever at this point.
Escape Room 2 stars Taylor Russell and Logan Miller with franchise newcomers Holland Roden (Channel Zero), Indya Moore (Pose), Thomas Cocquerel (The 100), Carlito Olivero (Step Up: High Water), and Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan).
Directed by Adam Robitel, the original centered on six strangers who travel to a mysterious building to experience the escape room — a game where players compete to solve a series of puzzles to win $10,000. What starts out as innocent fun soon turns into a living nightmare as the four men and two women discover each room is an elaborate trap that’s part of a sadistic game of life or death.
It sports a 50% over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Escape Room fails to unlock much of the potential in its premise, but what’s left is still tense and thrilling enough to offer a passing diversion for suspense fans.
