Universal Pictures has released a new The Purge: Anarchy trailer for writer/director James DeMonaco’s horror sequel. This trailer gets a bit deeper into the plot of the follow-up, as it appears to put a Most Dangerous Game twist on the proceedings as a group of survivors unwillingly become part of an auction in which the rich bid on whom they want to hunt for the evening. The Purge really is one of the more fruitful horror concepts in recent memory, and one imagines this franchise will spawn many more sequels to come.
Hit the jump to watch the new The Purge: Anarchy trailer. The film stars Frank Grillo, 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.
