When The Purge landed starring Ethan Hawke, it was a surprise hit. And given the premise of the film where one night a year, America revokes all its laws and all crimes are legal (including murder) -- one can see why that story was just the tip of The Purge iceberg.
The Purge: Anarchy greatly widens the scope. Where the Hawke-centric story dealt with one family in one house and how they dealt with the night of horror and mayhem, this time out, we see the anarchy across an entire city.
As teased in the latest The Purge: Anarchy trailer, things don’t work out really well for average folks on this one night a year of insanity.
But, Frank Grillo plays a man on a mission. He’s out to get justice for the death of his son. But, along the way, he meets some people in dire need of help. And… he helps them and that proves to be one bad idea.
The Purge: Anarchy lands July 18 and also stars Michael K. Williams, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez and Carmen Ejogo.
