Escape Room 2, a sequel to last year’s Escape Room, has wrapped filming in South Africa according to a social media post from the film’s director, Adam Robitel.
“After 50 days of principle, and 20 days of 2nd Unit, we have officially wrapped photography on Escape Room 2,” Robitel said in a post earlier this morning while adding his gratitude to the South African crew. “It’s always bittersweet to come to the end, but I can’t wait to share what machinations Minos has in store.”
Escape Room 2 follows up the events of the first film which found six strangers trapped inside an escape room created by the Minos Corporation where the price of failure was death.
Escape Room, which also filmed in South Africa, starred Taylor Russell (Lost in Space), Logan Miller (Love Simon), Jay Ellis (In a Relationship), Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs Evil), Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood), and Nik Dodani (Alex Strangelove).
Miller and Russell returned for the sequel joined by Indya Moore (Pose), Holland Roden (MTV’s Teen Wolf), Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan), Thomas Cocquerel (In Like Flynn), and Carlito Olivero (Bad Samaritan).
Details on the plot of the second film in the franchise are being kept under wraps, but we know from the end of the first that Miller and Russell’s characters had decided to attempt to take down the Minos Corporation. It will be interesting to see how that plays out going in the sequel.
The new film is set for release on November 3, 2020.
We can’t wait to see what new and innovative rooms Escape Room 2 has in store! Will you be watching?
Aubrey Plaza Wants to be the Next Tim Burton With ‘Hocus Pocus’ Like Film
Aubrey Plaza has long been a self-affirmed “sea hag”. Her dark personality and sense of humor has long been a favorite of ours. Now, with her production company, Evil Hag Productions, she intends to make a family-friendly film that is something like Tim Burton meets Hocus Pocus.
While talking to GQ, Plaza said that she would like to “…fill the Tim Burton slot” by putting together her first directorial effort. The family-friendly affair is said to be a mix of Beetlejuice and Hocus Pocus.
Plaza can currently be seen in Evil Hag Production’s Emily the Criminal and on HBO’s White Lotus season 2.
We can’t wait to see what Plaza has to offer in her directorial efforts. It would be great to see her built a brand and aesthetic as awesome as Burton’s.
M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Knock at the Cabin’ Finds Danger Right Outside
M. Night Shyamalan’s next film is already on its way. The ominous Knock at the Cabin is incredibly intriguing, especially since the first trailer gave away so little. The first poster for Knock at the Cabin is just as ominous as the teaser.
Shyamalan’s last film Old, played up the Twilight Zone like mystery and took it to Sci-Fi levels. Knock at the Cabin looks to trump that and move far into the horror/thriller genre.
The synopsis for Knock at the Cabin goes like this:
“While vacationing at a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.”
Knock at the Cabin arrives in theaters beginning February 3.
‘Cocaine Bear’ Gives Us One of the Wildest Posters of the Year
Elizabeth Banks has decided to grace our eyeballs with one of the wildest titles, posters and film synopsis’ of the past decade. I’m of course talking about Cocaine Bear. This true story is one of those that you have to see to believe. But, the title is exactly what you think it is.
Kentucky 1985 was the time and place. A really unlucky bear ingested a lot of cocaine that was dropped in the woods by a smuggler. Unfortunately, the bear died from an overdose but not before going on a real rager beforehand.
Deadline’s synopsis for Cocaine Bear is as follows:
“The movie finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.”
The film stars Keri Russell, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Cocaine Bear comes raging into theaters February 24.
