The Purge: Anarchy, which acts as the sequel to last fall’s hit thriller, throws a stranger middle-class couple and a man out for revenge into the mayhem of the annual purge. That event, for those who missed the first film, is a single night per year in which all crime is legal, the better to weed out the “weaker” aspects of society. The Purge: Anarchy trailer gives vague hints about how those new characters come together, and shows off one particularly icky situation in which a parody of a charity auction turns into a night of murder for sale.
Check out the trailer below.
The Purge: Anarchy opens on June 20th. Trailer via Universal.
