The Purge 2: Anarchy

"This won't bring him back." While the teaser trailer for The Purge: Anarchy only showed us Zach Gilford and Kiele Sanchez trapped in the city when the 12-hour crime spree begins, this new full theatrical trailer paints a better picture with more characters. It looks like this stranded couple will end up getting saved by Frank Grillo, a distressed man who uses The Purge to take out his frustrations on bad guys as penance for his dead son. He's like The Punisher of The Purge, and that's pretty bad ass. This one definitely widens the scope from the first film, which didn't take full advantage of the great concept. Watch!

Here's the full theatrical trailer for James DeMonaco's The Purge: Anarchy from Universal:

The Purge: Anarchy is written, directed and produced by James DeMonaco, the filmmaker behind the 2013 thriller The Purge. In this follow-up, a couple (Zach Gilford and Kiele Sanchez) finds themselves stuck in chaos on the streets in the middle of The Purge, the 12-hour period when all crime is legal. Frank Grillo and Michael K. Williams ("The Wire") also star in the film from Paranormal Activity and Insidious producer Jason Blum and Universal Pictures is slated to release the film on July 18th this summer. Excited yet?

    Actually, he looks like Frank Grillo has a specific target, i.e. the man who killed his son.

    So glad they are moving away from the whole at-home-slasher-flick scenario into "what happens to the citizens who are stuck on the streets?" thing.
  • Trey Wilson
    Loool, no wonder the world is fucked up. These movies make the world a much worse place to live in.

      This is one of the stupidest comments i've ever seen..
    • Quynh Truong
      it's a freaking movie
    • Steve Shreve
      No disrespect but it seems u don't know how to separate fantasy from reality
  • steve
    This is what people were expecting to happen in the first movie
  • Carlo
    Grillo for Punisher.
    • SkyNet300
      I second that casting choice! Or Christian Bale.

      I'd love this, but Grillo's already Crossbones in the new Captain America film. Get Josh Brolin as The Punisher.
      • Enola
        Well Chris Evans was The Human Torch and now he is Captain America, so I see no reason why Grillo can't be both... Don't know who has The Punisher rights at the moment, but if and when they make a new one. I hope they make it R-rated, eventhough that didn't help Warzone...
        • ASFan
          The problem with that is now Punisher movie rights have gone back to Marvel, which means if they make another Punisher movie, it'll arguably exist in the same universe as Cap, which already features Grillo as Crossbones.
          • Enola
            That would make it harder, but I don't see The Punisher making friends with the other Marvel characters in the movie universe. To me he just wouldn't fit into what they are doing with the other characters right now. He is too hardcore...
  • SkyNet300
    This is what the first film should have been. I'm pumped for this.
  • Sara
    Frank Grillo could be cast as anything and I would watch it. That guy can act!
  • Payne by name
    Would have liked to have seen a bit more single minded revenge. It's never done as well as it could be.
    • LyonsMG
      I hardly saw any real hints of anyone out for revenge in that trailer, all I saw was a group of people trying to survive.
      • Payne by name
        Yes, you're right. It looked like he was on the way to do some bad stuff and then a movie load of running away from bad guys.
        • ASFan
          They should do one where the protagonist is dead set on his path for vengeance and uses extreme methods to take out the group that killed someone close to him. But a twist is that the group he/she goes after is connected to certain powerful people, some people responsible for the inception of the Purge. So we get a little backstory of the Purge. So it would be a revenge movie and a political thriller as well.
    I don't think that he is taking his frustration on bad guys. I saw him looking at a target... so... i think he's a hunter... that's explain why he didn't wanted to get envolved with the two ladies on the trailer

    The end with the bidding had a Bioshock feel to it, looks good!
  • Nielsen700
    Looks to be better than the first!
  • Werefon
    Already Better than disappointing first part. And Yeah, Grillo is Punisher!
