Universal has released seven new The Purge: Anarchy posters online. If the movie had been released for the July 4th weekend, it would be a very sly and perhaps too abrasive commentary on our nation. The sequel takes place in a dystopian future where employment and crime are low, but for 12 hours every year all social services are suspended, and all crime is legal. The first film had trouble deciding if it was an action film or a home-invasion thriller, but as you can see from the trailer, the follow-up is secure in being a straight action flick. It also looks damn good.
Hit the jump to check out The Purge: Anarchy posters. he film stars Frank Grillo, Zoë Soul, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, and Michael K. Williams. The Purge: Anarchy opens in theaters on July 18th.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Purge: Anarchy:
The New Founders of America invite you to celebrate your annual right to Purge. The Purge: Anarchy, the sequel to summer 2013’s sleeper hit that opened to No. 1 at the box-office, sees the return of writer/director James DeMonaco to craft the next terrifying chapter of dutiful citizens preparing for their country’s yearly 12 hours of anarchy.
