Get more details on Universal Pictures’ The Purge Election Year on the flip…
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.
Once again 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).

What makes the third installment of the Purge a bit scary is if Trump is elected doesn’t this seem like something he would initiate while in office?
With Purge: Election Year, it looks like producer Jason Blum and the Purge masterminds’ palette will be expanded even further. And, of course, the film will be timely. The release of House of Cards’s 4th season was also cleverly timed, but Election Year looks to be more apropos than the beloved Netflix show — especially in capturing our current predicament, which by the day, is mounting more and more: come next year we might be living in TA (Trump’s America). – Inverse
We are hoping that Trump does NOT win and Hillary Clinton becomes the first woman President. We know she will do well because she already help her husband Bill while he was in office.
