According to Forbes one top-grossing movie this summer has been “The Purge: Anarchy,” which brought in a solid $13 million on its opening night in July, and a solid $30 million opening weekend. According to Scott Mendelson, Forbes Film Critic and Box Office Guru: “As it stands, ‘The Purge: Anarchy’ is the first unquestionably successful theatrical horror film of the year.”

“The Purge: Anarchy” is expected to outshine the original “The Purge” film which, mostly disliked by both horror fans and casual moviegoers, grossed just $64 million over its entire theatrical run. As of this week, the total domestic gross of “The Purge: Anarchy” has already far exceeded its predecessor with an estimated $68,548,300 (domestic) and a total estimated worldwide gross of $95,548,300.

The reason? According to Forbes, “The Purge: Anarchy” is a superior film to The Purge and gives viewers a far more expansive story this time around. The magazine notes that the film’s city-wide narrative is more engaging than the first installment’s “claustrophobic” home invasion plot, and concludes that this sequel is the year’s first “unquestionable smash” in the usually reliable horror genre.
