If you’re like us at DFAT, then you’re a fan of The Purge films. Great social commentary mixed with horror/thriller elements and a ton of fun. The last film starred Frank Grillo (Crossbones in Captain America Civil War), and this time he’s back in The Purge: Election Year. Read the synopsis and check out the new trailer below.

Expanding the universe introduced in the hit franchise that electrified the culture and earned $200 million at the worldwide box office, Universal Pictures’ 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.

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 film stars Frank Grillo and Elizabeth Mitchell will debut later this year.
