According to the Sony Pictures Releasing website, “Escape Room: Tournament of Champions” will be distributed only in cinemas. This implies that “Tournament of Champions” will not be available to view at home at the same time it is released in theaters. Many companies, like Warner Bros. and Disney, have used this technique to get their films in front of as many people as possible, but Sony isn’t following suit with the sequel to “Escape Room.” This was also a deliberate choice, since the studio and filmmaker believe that the visceral pleasures will be more effective at a multiplex (via CinemaBlend). Sony even moved the film’s release date multiple times in order to accommodate a theatrical release.
“Tournament of Champions,” according to director Adam Robitel, is the sort of film that should be viewed with others. “‘To bristle on the back of the neck,’ according to the Latin origin of the term terror. It’s the only genre that has an effect on the audience’s bodily and physiological well-being “In an interview with CinemaBlend, Robitel remarked. “It’s a game of manipulation. People enjoy being scared in bunches. They enjoy going on dates, yell, and eat popcorn.” With that in mind, it’s reasonable to assume that “Escape Room: Tournament of Champions” won’t be accessible to view at home for at least 90 days, which is the average period between movies being released in theaters and being released in homes.
