Second Trailer for Horror Sequel 'The Purge: Election Year' Revealed
"What's you doing outside on Purge night, Senator?" Universal has released the second official trailer for The Purge: Election Year, the latest sequel in the crazy horror franchise the started in 2013. Frank Grillo returns for this one as the head of security protecting Senator Charlie Roan, played by Elizabeth Mitchell. The full cast includes Raymond J. Barry, Mykelti Williamson, Betty Gabriel, JJ Soria, Ethan Phillips, Sparrowhawk, Edwin Hodge and many others. I'm not really a fan of this series, so this trailer just looks totally wacky, totally crazy, and not necessarily in a good way. All those funky masks just look like weird masks, and I'm not even sure what that guillotine has to do with anything. Have at it.
Here's the second trailer for James DeMonaco's The Purge: Election Year, from Universal's YouTube:
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.
