It was just two days ago that the plot and photos from the sequel were unveiled, and now we’re getting a further taste of its terrors.

Columbia Pictures/Sony Pictures releases ESCAPE ROOM: TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS to theaters July 16. Original director Adam Robitel is back at the helm, and the script was written by Will Honley and Oren Uziel and Maria Melnik & Daniel Tuch, from a story by Christine Lavaf & Fritz Bohm. Stars Taylor Russell and Logan Miller are also back from the first ESCAPE ROOM, joined by Indya Moore, Holland Roden, Thomas Cocquerel and Carlito Olivero. The synopsis: “In this installment, six people 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.”
