Universal has released a fantastic featurette that takes us inside their July 18-arriving thriller The Purge: Anarchy. As you can tell from that recent The Purge: Anarchy trailer, what was teased in the first film -- The Purge -- is greatly expanded in this latest movie.
The first flick, starring Ethan Hawke, focused on the wealthy suburbanites and their effort to survive the once-a-year night where all crime is legal. Since the start of the Purge, the government has seen an enormous reduction in all violent crime… so the Purge is a success.
In The Purge: Anarchy, we get to see how the annual night of mayhem affects everyone else. There are three intertwining stories, and the below featurette previews how Frank Grillo’s lead character winds up connecting with the other two storylines.
Grillo is a grieving father out to Purge in the name of vengeance. The mother-daughter pair of Eva (Carmen Ejogo) and Cali (Zoe Soul), live in a rough part of town and have no money to try to protect themselves. And then there’s Liz (Kiele Sanchez) and Shane (Zach Gilford), who get caught in the middle of the Purge when their car breaks down.
All three of their worlds will collide on a night that is all about violence, and in the middle of all that chaos, these five souls will find much more than survival… or will they?
