For those who felt the first The Purge was too limited and too familiar, The Purge: Anarchy takes the same basic premise but goes in a bolder, more extreme direction. Once again, the story is set in a dystopian America where, in a ghastly effort to weed out the weak and let the strong blow off steam, all crime has been legalized for one twelve-hour period per year.
But this time, the action spills out onto the streets as Frank Grillo plays a man who heads out in search of revenge. Unfortunately for him (and the others with him), it’s not long before the tables are turned on them. Watch the new The Purge: Anarchy trailer after the jump.

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. Read More »
In The Purge: Anarchy, which comes from the writer/director of the 2013 sleeper hit film, a young couple is stranded in the middle of a city when their car breaks down. But this breakdown happens at the worst possible time: just hours before the annual Purge begins. The Purge — that 12-hour period when all crime is legal, as outlined in the original film — is really not when you want to be out on the streets, unless you’re wearing a mask or some face paint and carrying a hefty weapon, and preferably have a gang of friends along with similar gear.
The teaser below some of the couple’s effort to survive, but it doesn’t tell us whether this sequel will be more satisfying in the end than the first film was. Read More »
