Taylor Adams’ original novel was first published in 2017. On GoodReads.com, the book holds a rating of 4.03 out of 5 after more than 85 thousand ratings and more than 11 thousand reviews. Here’s how the director Damien Power commented on the trailer’s release:
“I think there are a few specific things I did not want in the trailer, which are not in the trailer. One, I think it’s really a great trailer and is the kind of thing that I would watch and want to see that film. And two, I think that it gives you a pretty fair picture of what the film is like, an intense, suspenseful, grounded thriller. So yeah, I’m really pleased with it.” — Damien Power for ComicBook.com
Directed by Damien Power, No Exit will be streaming on Hulu (internationally on Disney+ and Star+) on February 25, 2022.
