‘Escape Room’ Trailer: Would You Put Your Life on the Line for $1 Million

Participants have to find the clues that will lead to their escape or die, so says the new official trailer for Escape Room. The trailer sets up the film and shows strangers receiving mysterious little black boxes. Inside each box is a note that reads: “This serves as an entry voucher for Minos Escape Rooms. Be the first to escape our most immersive room yet and win a million dollars.”

The trailer further reveals these strangers weren’t chosen arbitrarily, and whoever is behind the room knows all their secrets. Creepy!

The cast of the psychological thriller includes Taylor Russell (Lost in Space), Logan Miller (Guardians of the Galaxy TV series), Deborah Ann Woll (The Defenders, Daredevil), Jay Ellis (Insecure), Tyler Labine (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency), Nik Dodani (Murphy Brown), and Yorick van Wageningen (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

Adam Robitel (Insidious: The Last Key) directed from a screenplay by Bragi Schut and Maria Melnik. Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur produced, with Rebecca Rivo serving as an executive producer.

The behind the scenes team includes director of photography Marc Spicer, editor Steve Mirkovich, production designer Edward Thomas, costume designer Reza Levy, set designer Tracy Perkins, and art director Mark Walker. The film’s music was done by John Carey and Brian Tyler.
