"Tonight we take lives. We can't have any interference." The theatrical trailer for The Purge: Anarchy gave us the full rundown of the chaos that unfolds in this sequel as we see the full effect of The Purge crime spree unleashed across the city, no longer isolated to a small neighborhood. This time we get a better idea of the story as we see more of Frank Grillo's vigilante character in a new trailer getting involved with some innocent people stuck on the streets during The Purge. It seems like the first half of the film focuses on them trying to survive and stay hidden, while the second half sees them being capture and hunted as part of a twisted game after being auctioned off to the higest bidder at some creepy socialite gathering. Watch below!
Here's the new trailer for James DeMonaco's The Purge: Anarchy from MovieClips:
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?
I did not like the first Purge at all. I thought most of the cast was bad, especially the villains, and the shaky-cam got annoying. But I thought the premise laid the ground work for what could potentially be a great franchise with annual instalments and a bigger budget. I liked Frank Grillo in The Grey and really liked Kiele Sanchez in A Perfect Getaway and from the trailers so far this one looks pretty good, I'll be going in with low expectations so hopefully it'll surprise me. I'm most intrigued by Grillo's role and that creepy looking auction - that scene in particular looks like it could be really tense.

After watching this trailer, i just realized Frank Grillo would be a great Frank Castle/Punisher, thoughts?

I thought this looked cool until it became "The Running Man"

I didn't care for the first one, and this one looks like I'll be passing one this one too.

I watched it yesterday at premiere in Paris. It is bloody awful. Especially the writing. The actors are trying their best... But when dialogues and situations are this poor, there's not much you can do. I think most of the viewers would agree with me as we were all laughing in the dramatic moments....
