Frank Grillo heads up the latest trailer for The Purge: Anarchy

You had to know a sequel to THE PURGE was coming. It is an annual thing. I was surprised that it did as well as it did at the box office. I thought it was okay. Pretty brutal at times.

Before the full weekend box office report was released I saw that THE PURGE had pulled in over $16 million alone on Friday and instantly thought to myself, "How long is it going to be before a sequel is announced?"
