Update: Escape room 2 will now open on July 16 instead of next year when it was slated for the first weekend of 2022. Sony already has Camila Cabello’s musical directed by Kay Cannon Cinderella July 16. For now, this film will stay there while Sony monitors overseas markets. There is a chance that both Escape room 2 and Cinderella will remain on that date as they target two different demographic groups. Warner Bros. also has its HBO Max version Space Jam 2 July 16 and Searchlight has its Sundance horror acquisition The night house.
Previous, January 25: Sony / Screen Gems Escape room 2 will now open on January 7, 2022.
The more than $ 155 million horror film sequel was recently pulled from the theatrical schedule. Previously, Sony had planned to open the film on December 30, 2020, then before that, on August 14, and even before that, on April 17.
The microbudget function is very popular with the studio, which is why they protect their assets.
