Despite the fact that there have already been a few escape room-themed movies to be released in recent years (some of which also use the title “Escape Room”), Sony’s Escape Room is apparently the first one to come from a major studio. Directed by Adam Robitel (Insidious: The Last Key) and based on a script by Bragi F. Schut (Season of the Witch), the story revolves around six strangers who are invited to participate in a highly immersive escape room where the first to escape wins $1 million. There’s just one catch: this particular escape room is so immersive that the threats are very real and potentially deadly. It looks to pull together elements of movies like The Game, Saw and Cube into what I am assuming will be a toned down PG-13 thriller. Escape Room stars Deborah Ann Woll, Tyler Labine and Taylor Russell and it hits theatres on Jan. 4th. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
