Universal Pictures has released about a dozen new images for writer/director James DeMonaco‘s upcoming horror sequel The Purge: Anarchy. One of the things I like about the direction this followup seems to be taking is that it truly expands on the general promise of the concept of “the Purge”, or at least it begins to show it implemented, rather than using it as a nifty backdrop for a mediocre home invasion film (à la last year’s first installment). These pictures give you a good sense of that.
Hit the jump to check out the new The Purge: Anarchy images. The film stars Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, and Michael K. Williams. It opens in theaters on July 18th.
And if you haven’t seen the trailer, you can take care of that over here.
