    everybody will end up calling this “The Purge 2″ anyways.

    Dumbest thing I’ve heard. Well, at least if the movie is terrible (which I’m counting on) the title will match.

    Obviously its going to change. I was in favor of “The Zone” but people will just call it The Purge 2 anyway.

    The first movie had an interesting idea, yet wasted it on a boring home invasion movie. Hopefully the sequel will be bigger in scope, even if its just a group of people trying to get home and are hunted the whole way there – bit like the The Warriors movie. Or maybe a level 10 political person who is meant to be untouchable, but is hunted along with his police escort.

    My thoughts were that the purge was just a way to keep the population numbers down so there are enough jobs etc for everyone.

    i agree guys. just call it THE PURGE 2. the working title they are using now is silly and obviously they’ll change it.
