Have Your Voice Heard. Keep America Great.
This July, Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions are releasing yet another franchise film, just in time for Election Year. Debuting tonight, during the Presidential debates, a new ad for their upcoming film, "The Purge: Election Year," which was a cleverly well played out as a marketing strategy to appear as a public service announcement. We all remember the first of the franchise film, which was a universal hit that electrified the culture and earned $200 million at the worldwide box office. Universal Pictures, now with the third chapter in the Purge franchise, "The Purge: Election Year" reveals the next terrifying chapter that occurs over 12 hours of annual lawlessness sanctioned by the New Founders of America to keep this country great.
In the 2nd chapter, "The Purge: Anarchy," the character Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) mission was to seek revenge on the person that killed his son on Purge Night, but stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge. Now two years later, Barnes is 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.
Returning to collaborate with franchise creator James DeMonaco on The Purge: Election Year are the series’ producers: Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum (Insidious and Ouija series, The Visit), Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ouija series, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and writer/director DeMonaco’s longtime production partner, Sébastien K. Lemercier (Assault on Precinct 13, Four Lovers).
