Watch: Teaser Trailer for 'The Purge: Anarchy' Definitely Ups the Ante

The Purge: Anarchy

"No one's gonna help us tonight." Though last summer's horror thriller The Purge put forth a brilliant concept, the idea felt wasted as the story unfolded like almost any other hostage or home invasion thriller. But with The Purge: Anarchy coming this summer, the teaser trailer makes it looks like we're finally going to get the story we want in this universe where one night a year allows for rampant crime that goes unpunished and uninhibited for 12 hours. The clash of the public service announcement with that upbeat opening before the terror sets in is definitely effective, and this seems like a sequel that will deliver. Watch!

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

And here's the awesome poster for The Purge: Anarchy from IMP Awards:

The Purge: Anarchy

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 June 20th this summer. Excited yet?

Didn't I just see the purge like two months ago?

That's what I was thinking. Is this, like, a legitimate sequel? It hast he same writer/director, so I'd assume so. They got this shit off the ground quickly. The first one did make 30x its budget, so I guess they wanted to strike while the iron was hot.

It'll be a year? Whats the big deal, the new hunger games is coming out a year after the recent one..it's nothing new

Strange you should say it's nothing new and then use a movie that doesn't even exist yet as your only example.

Okay so how about Twilight, then Twilight New Moon the same month next year? Or how The Chamber or Secrets came out a year after The Philosophers Stone

Wow. I was not expecting much but I have to say I'm ready for some anarchy!

Hopefully this time they will actually acknowledge political satire and social commentary, the first one was more of a home invasion movie and didn't use the whole government purge thing to its advantage, it was like Home Alone with gore. But I gotta say that trailer was pretty damn cool.

I might have locked myself in the trunk and hopped for the best...that would make for a boring movie though.

It's almost as if the first film was supposed to be lame & terrible so that they could make the second film be brilliant. One wonders if this films concept would have been embraced if it was released first(last year)and vice versa. We'll see at the box office in June.

Third movie: "Oh god! I'm trapped in a phone booth with an ATM machine going 60 mph and I lost track of time! The purge is happening!"

I don't think I would even leave the house on that day, just in case of some bullshit like my car breaking down.

The inclusion of Michael K Williams is intriguing, but the first one was so horrible it'd take a miracle for this one to be passable.

Nice choice of music, but the rest of the trailer just looks silly.
