The Purge: Anarchy
It doesn't take a thinking person more than ten seconds to poke holes in the premise of “The Purge." It also doesn't take one to see the seductive hook of the material: Americans acting upon some sort of birthright to behave like animals, to let loose the chains of propriety and savagely end each other. “The Purge: Anarchy” takes place in 2023, and the surprise isn't that the American dream has become, “Fend for yourself, leave others behind.” No, the surprise is in why this sentiment necessitates the film taking place nine years in the future.

The Purge: Anarchy
If shit goes down, we want Frank Grillo on our side. And so when he says, "Keep moving, and stay quiet," you better listen or you might get killed. Even worse, the person who murders you won't get charged for it. At least that's the way it'll roll in "The Purge: Anarchy" and a new trailer has arrived for the quick sequel to last summer's horror hit.

Frank Grillo, Intersection
The idea of a remake of Indonesian action sensation "The Raid" without the bonkers, surely-someone-must-have-died action genius of director Gareth Evans, or with the presumably lax approach to health and safety that's the only way some of the insanity of the film (and its even crazier sequel) could have been pulled off, seems somewhat pointless. But nevertheless, Screen Gems have been pressing on, with "Red Hill" and "The Expendables 3" helmer Patrick Hughes attached to direct, and they just made a hire that means we might have a sliver of interest in the prospect.

They may not have lit up the box office, but Gareth Evans’s pair of bloody Indonesian action movies – “The Raid: Redemption” and “The Raid 2: Berandal” – have caught the attention of Hollywood and, in fact, the North American remake rights to the first film were scooped up not long after its successful TIFF Midnight Madness screening. While it seemed the U.S. remake of “The Raid” was finally gathering steam – it locked up both a writer and director earlier this year – things have since slowed down.

Captain America 2, Best/Worst
This past Friday, after opening worldwide a few weeks earlier and performing like gangbusters, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the ninth Marvel Studios movie to date, arrived in the U.S., and swiftly proceeded to be the biggest opening of 2014 to date, smashing April records with a hefty $96 million weekend. That's a big step up for the second adventure to topline Chris Evans' super-soldier Steve Rogers to date, no doubt helped by very positive reaction from fans and critics alike.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
He might not be a space Viking or a talking raccoon, but Captain America was almost as tricky a character to bring to the screen in the 21st century as some of his Marvel contemporaries — standing for sincerity and purity in an age of grittiness and irony, and wearing the stars-and-stripes in an age when international box-office is key. As such, the character's first appearance in 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger," is probably best described as a modest success, both critically (an enjoyably retro first half giving way to a flatter, more formless second), and commercially — at $370 million, it's the second lowest-grossing of the Marvel pictures so far.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
That was fast. It's hard to believe that "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is just weeks away, hitting screens overseas at the end of the month. And now Marvel is doing the final push for the sequel, which means we're going to get lots more from the movie online before we see it in cinemas, and today a new, lengthy three minute clip has arrived.
