It would seem as if there is a slight shift in dynamic on the horizon for the upcoming film, The Purge: Anarchy. Universal Pictures has officially changed the film’s release date from June 20th until July 18th.
There was no immediate reason given for the shift.
The film will have two major points of contention that weekend. They will be going up against Andy and Lana Wachowski’s film Jupiter Ascending, which stars Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, and one of the latest films from Buena Vista, Planes: Fire and Rescue.
Earlier this month, we showed you the first official teaser trailer for the film, which gave us a little better look at what we can expect from the follow up to the 2013 film The Purge, which starred Ethan Hawke and Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey.
In the first film, the Sandin family had the safety and security of their well-guarded and well-armed home to keep them safe. While this ultimately did not end up doing them a whole lot of good, it is still nice to know that there is something between you and the insanity.
In The Purge: Anarchy, a young couple finds themselves trapped out in the open after a stalled car puts them outside once the announcement of the commencement of the official Purge began. Now, they will have to fight for their lives to make it out of the one night a year where crimes like murder are perfectly legal.
The film stars Frank Grillo, who also plays Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Michael K. Williams, Zach Gilford, and The Glades’ Kiele Sanchez.
The Purge: Anarchy is scheduled to be released on July 18, 2014.
