The Purge: Election Year Trailer

"This is not a drill." Universal has debuted the first official trailer for horror sequel The Purge: Election Year, which is essentially The Purge 3 following The Purge: Anarchy in 2014. The plot this time involves Frank Grillo returning as the head of security protecting Senator Charlie Roan, played by Elizabeth Mitchell, who encounters more than he bargained for when the annual purge event brings out the crazies. The "Election Year" angle is quite bold. The full cast from this one includes Raymond J. Barry, Ethan Phillips, Sparrowhawk, Edwin Hodge and many others. This latest Purge entry looks about as dark and violent and crazy as the last two, so if you've enjoyed the others this will be more of the same. Have at it.

Here's the first trailer for James DeMonaco's The Purge: Election Year, direct from Uni's YouTube:

The Purge: Election Year

It’s been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent. But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive until dawn… or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state. The Purge: Election Year is both written and directed by James DeMonaco, of both The Purge and The Purge: Anarchy before this. Blumhouse Productions' Jason Blum, along with Platinum Dunes, Sébastien K. Lemercier are producing. Universal will open DeMonaco's The Purge 3 in theaters everywhere starting July 1st, 2016 this summer.

Damn that's a clever and interesting route to take. Glad to see this concept with so much potential being used like this.

the plot device will start to become more and more convoluted as the movies drag on... I see there being about 10 of these films before it finally ends

The first one was sh_!t, but I really liked the second one. This one looks like it will be pretty good too!

These are complete trash but sorta guilty pleasure movies. Kinda like the SAW franchise was.

Saw 1&2 were actually good. The first Purge was not how they should have started the franchise. Great concept with The Purge but they give us a simple family break in story. 2nd one was great and what everyone was expecting the 1st to be like. I'm sure this one will be even more chaotic and digs deeper into the story which is good. It's always good to you know, have a story

I don't feel guilty watching ANYTHING. You either like a movie or you don't. There are no facts in regard to whether or not a film is good or bad, it's entirely subjective. Films are simply made for entertainment. If it entertained you and made you forget the price of eggs, it did it's job well. 😉

It's a mediocre execution in the first two, but it's interesting metaphor of contemporary societies. So, it is necessary to watch ...

This is what America will become if Trump is elected.

I thought Senators were safe during the Purge? and why didn't she just go over seas during the purge, or be on a plane with someone she trusts

The trailer shows them being betrayed by the government therefore forcing them onto the street where no-one would know or care of she's exempt or not

You're my boy Grillo! but no. You're gonna shine in Captain America as Crossbones.

definitely going watch it, just fun an action packed. Nothing more nothing less. The last one was nice and frank Grillo is just a honest hard working guy...

Got to admit some of them are pretty cool... but yes... it's lost it's new concept edge now and is becoming as stretched as the saw series... always some convoluted way to continue the story
