Theatrical Trailer: “THE PURGE: ANARCHY” Has A Lot Going OnMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
If you were one of many disappointed in the THE PURGE’s execution, namely that it never left the house, then THE PURGE: ANARCHY might be directly aimed at you. A teaser promised a city of mayhem and a couple looking to survive it, but this latest, lengthier trailer introduces a host of threads including the aforementioned innocent couple in a war zone, a man out for vengeance, an urban landscape of gleeful killers and of course, the monstrous upper crust. Take it all in, below.
Clearly, the best part of THE PURGE: ANARCHY’s new clip is that the Emergency Broadcast System emphasizes that murder is legal. “All crime, including murder,” it booms over the city. “So go party,” could just as easily conclude that statement.
Writer-Director James DeMonaco returns with a cast including Frank Grillo (THE GREY) and Zach Gilford (FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS). THE PURGE: ANARCHY is out July 18.
