"The Purge: Anarchy" movie quotes bring another installment of the horror film series back to the big screen for 12 more hours of legal crime. James DeMonaco returns to write and direct the film which follows "The Purge," released in June 2013. "The Purge: Anarchy" opened in the United States on July 18, 2014.

In "The Purge: Anarchy," the story of five normal folks whose Purge nights collide are told. Leo (Frank Grillo) sets out on Purge night, a 12-hour span when all crime, including the super violent kind, is not only illegal but encouraged by the government, to avenge the death of his son. Along the way, his plan is interrupted when he meets two women, Eva (Carmen Ejogo) and Cali (Zoe Soul). He rescues them and they stay together to keep safe.

The three also meet a couple, Shane (Zach Gilford) and Liz (Kiele Sanchez) who are desperately trying to stay safe after their car breaks down right before the Purge. The group of five is abducted by masked men, but surprisingly not killed. Instead, as they soon learn, they become part of some strange auction where their lives, or rather murders, are sold to the highest bidder. They have to be smart, stay together and keep moving if they all want to survive the Purge.

"The Purge: Anarchy" faces a good deal of competition at the box office as it opens alongside other great films such as "Planes: Fire & Rescue," "Sex Tape," "Wish I Was Here, "And So It Goes, "Dawn of Planet of the Apes," "A Long Way Down," "Tammy," "Earth to Echo," "Deliver Us from Evil," "Transformers: Age of Extinction," "Snowpiercer," "Begin Again," "They Came Together," "Think Like a Man Too," "22 Jump Street, "How to Train Your Dragon 2," "Hellion," "The Rover," and The Fault in Our Stars."

Emergency Announcement: "This is your Emergency Broadcast System announcing the commencement of the Annual Purge. At the siren, all crime, including murder, will be legal for 12 hours. All emergency services will be suspended. Your government thanks you for your participation."
