It’s just over a month until The Purge: Election Year hits our screens in the UK and a little over 3 weeks for our friends in the USA. We’re very excited to see the third instalment in the franchise and discover whether it can improve on the surprisingly entertaining Purge: Anarchy. After a disappointing first film, Anarchy took to the streets and proved that the story would work better with a larger playing ground.
Check out the array of character posters below which twist well-known American figures into disturbing killers. Which one is your favourite?
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 blasts on to our screens on 1st July in the USA and 15th July in the UK.
