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.

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.

This time around, the premise is the same but the cast is different. In this vision of the near future, America has reduced crime to pretty much none ... by allowing one 24-hour period per year where anything goes. So, if you want to hit the streets and kill, loot, rob and do whatever else, go for it. But if you've got a lick of sense in you, the plan should be to stay indoors. Unfortunately, when Grillo goes out for revenge he winds up crossing paths with some young kids who have inadvertently found themselves out after dark on purge night and he steps up into action to help them out. And their evening gets even crazier from there with shades of everything from "The Running Man" to "The Hunger Games."

Are you ready to purge? Find out on July 18th. Trailer below.
