The actor, who rose to fame as Angel Evangelista in Ryan Murphy's acclaimed LGBTQ+ drama, appears opposite Thomas Cocquerel, Carlito Olivero and Holland Roden, as well as returning players Logan Miller and Taylor Russell.
We got our first look at the sequel earlier this week and now the trailer just shows how deadly the game is this time around. "This is way bigger than last time," Ben (Miller) says, in case you didn't realise.
Released in 2019, the original movie centred on six strangers who were tasked with outsmarting a bunch of deadly puzzles after signing up for a mysterious competition with a $10,000 prize.
According to director Adam Robitel, the new outing picks up right where its predecessor left off, with the last remaining survivors Ben (Miller) and Zoey (Russell) – who have supposedly beaten their game – determined to expose the truth about Minos' deadly escape rooms.
"What we're going to find out is that though we had an insular view in the first movie of just Zoey's story, what we're going to realise is that on any given day, there are multiple games happening all around the world," Robitel recently teased to Cinema Blend.
"Ben and Zoey quickly realise that there are other characters who've also been through the games. It's sort of a meditation on trauma, and how people deal with trauma. But also, what they've learned through their first trial by fire."
Escape Room: Tournament of Champions is set to release on July 16 in both the UK and US.
