Universal Pictures’ The Purge: Anarchy hits theaters July 18th and it looks to be a bigger and better take on the concept than last year’s film. This new trailer is fairly similar to the last one, but plays up the rich vs. poor angle a bit more by expanding on the auction we glimpsed earlier. There’s definitely some social satire here, which I can get behind.
Frank Grillo, Michael K. Williams, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, and Keith Stanfield also star.
Returning alongside writer/director/producer James DeMonaco to produce the next chapter of the thriller are Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity and Insidious), alongside Sébastien K. Lemercier (Assault on Precinct 13, Four Lovers) and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay (Pain & Gain, Transformers), Brad Fuller (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th) and Andrew Form (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, The Amityville Horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street).
