The third film of The Purge horror franchise mixes the annual night of mayhem with politics more so than even The Purge: Anarchy did. Written and directed by James DeMonaco, The Purge: Election Year stars Frank Grillo and Elizabeth Mitchell. Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, and Sebastien K. Lemercier produce.
The Purge: Election Year opens over the July 4th weekend.
It’s been two years since Leo Barnes (Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (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.
