Universal Pictures has released a plethora of 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 so-so home invasion film.  These pictures give you a good sense of that.

The film stars Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, and Michael K. Williams.  It 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 in THE PURGE: ANARCHY.  Returning alongside writer/director/producer James DeMonaco to produce the sequel to 2013’s sleeper hit are Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity and Insidious series), alongside Sébastien K. Lemercier (Assault on Precinct 13, Four Lovers) and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay (Pain & Gain, Transformers franchise), Brad Fuller (The Amityville Horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Andrew Form (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th).
