New Plot Details for The Purge 2

Jason McDonald

If there’s one thing that can be said about “The Purge”, that I think most people would agree on, it is that the film had an interesting idea.  It’s the execution of the idea where people start to divide into two separate camps.

I know that one of the major gripes held by those that didn’t like “The Purge” was that it took place inside of a home and played out like a typical home invasion film, rather than exploring the world the film hinted at.  That concern might be addressed in the “The Purge 2” as some minor plot details suggest that the next Purge will have a slightly larger scale.

While speaking with Fangoria, actor Zach Gilford (Devil’s Due) revealed a few interesting bits about where the next Purge film will take place.

With this one, there’s none of the same characters, but it’s the same day of the year and it takes place in the city where there are no security systems and it’s just like a war zone where people are just trying to survive. So I thought it was pretty interesting to take that concept and to look at it from a different angle.

There’s still a chance that the film could be confined in a small building or home, but the fact that they’re moving out of the suburbs gives me hope that we’ll see another side of this universe.  It would be a radical change to go from a home invasion film to something about a dystopian city, but I think the concept of “The Purge” series allows it to present multiple settings with unique situations.

“The Purge 2” is set to hit theaters on June 20th, 2014.

        I really thought the first one was good, it had some of the dumbest characters, but that really didn’t hinder my enjoyment. Can’t wait for this one, it’s the storyline everyone wanted and people are still complaining. Just proof you can never make people happy. I think people are just used to whining these days.

        Home Invasion subgenre is one of my favorites but I don’t mind seeing a sequel taking place outside which would make it a bit of a survival horror which also one of my favorites, so, why not? Keeping my fingers crossed and looking forward to seeing it as soon as possible!

        Great concept, poor execution. What about the lead psycho? Got taken out like a tool.

        If they take it out into the streets should be good….that’s what the first one shoulda been

        You guys are fucking retarded….. This wasn’t near as bad as what you say it is. It was half way decent.

        BOO!! We don’t need an atrocious sequel, to the horrendous prequel.

        I hope so, the first one had so much potential.

        I liked The Purge. It really gave me something to think about, and I like the idea for a second one not in the suburbs, but in a city. Its make believe, but for some reason it hit a nerve with me. Stranger things have happened.
