Universal will move “The Purge: Anarchy” back by nearly a month this summer, the studio said Friday.
The followup to low-budget horror maestro Jason Blum‘s 2013 hit will debut in theaters on July 18, 2014. It will face off against Andy and Lana Wachowski‘s “Jupiter Ascending,” a futuristic adventure that stars Channing Tatum.
“The Purge Anarchy” originally was slated to open on June 20, 2014, where it would have done battle with “Think Like a Man, Too” and Clint Eastwood‘s adaptation of the long-running Broadway musical “Jersey Boys.”
Like its predecessor, “The Purge” sequel takes up with the citizens of an imagined future prepare for another 12 hours of anarchy.
