Attention Citizens: 'The Purge 3' Won't Arrive Until Summer 2016
For the past two years, we've seen The Purge and The Purge: Anarchy, but this year we'll get a break from the annual night when all crime is legal. Though last fall brought news that The Purge 3 was definitely going to happen with James DeMonaco writing and directing again, Ben Fritz of The Wall Street Journal posted news on Twitter that the sequel wouldn't arrive until July 1st, 2016. That's the best release date the franchise has received so far. The first film debuted on June 7th, 2013 and the second got a later summer release on July 18th, 2014. But that Independence Day weekend should prove to be a big one for The Purge.
In addition, it should make the marketing department excited to unload a shitload of satirical American propaganda as they've done previously (remember their teaser poster for the sequel was one of my favorite posters of 2014). Right now, the films slated to open up on July 1st, 2016 are the new adaptation of Tarzan from Warner Bros. Pictures and director David Yates and Steven Spielberg's family fantasy adventure The BFG. So far we know that Michael K. Williams will be back as activist and rebel Carmelo Jones, and it's going to be interesting to see how the battle against the corrupt government continues.
