James DeMonaco‘s The Purge managed to be a sleeper hit that surprised many last summer. The Ethan Hawke-led futuristic horror film followed a family as they battled murders and psychos while protecting their home on the annual purge night, a night in which all crime is legal for a period of time.
I wasn’t the biggest fan of the film, but I wouldn’t call it a bad one by any means.
Now, DeMonaco’s already got a sequel on schedule for July release and today we’ve got the new full-length trailer to show off, which features the film’s star Frank Grillo playing a Punisher-like role rather well.
I’m still not sure if this sequel will be worth checking out or not, but I guess we’ll find out this summer.
