Escape Room Rakes In Over $2m Dollars On Opening Night

Adam Robitel’s latest film, Escape Room has taken home $2.3m on its opening day this Thursday just gone, Deadline reveal.

Columbia Pictures’ PG-13 thriller Escape Room, the only wide entry this weekend and for the New Year, fired up $2.3M at 2,386 locations last night from showtimes starting at 4PM. While moviegoers will continue to flock to holiday holdovers such as Warner Bros/DC’s Aquaman, which is poised to post between $25M-$32M in its third weekend, horror scares up young females under 25. Escape Room‘s money last night is higher than the $1.98M that Universal/Blumhouse’s fourthquel Insidious: The Last Key made a year ago in Thursday night previews. Last Key went on to make a massive $29.5M opening, and finaled at $67.5M off a $10M budget before P&A. Adam Robitel directed both Escape Room and Last Key.

Six strangers find themselves in circumstances beyond their control, and must use their wits to survive.

The film stars Logan Miller, True Blood’s Deborah Ann Woll (pictured above), Taylor Russell, Tyler Labine, Jay Ellis and Nik Dodani.

The psychological thriller, written by Bragi Schut & Maria Melnik and directed by Adam Robitel will hit screens February 1st here in the UK.
