The madness is, once again, ramped up in this excellent trailer for The Purge: Election Year. Filled with striking imagery and gorgeous lighting, the exterior of the film is a supreme contrast to the dark tale that the film will be telling.
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: Anarchy was far superior to the first film, but Election Year looks to be even better. The story is brilliantly relevant and the execution looks stylish and perfectly satirical. We’re very excited about this one.
Check out the trailer below and get ready to Purge again when The Purge: Election Year blasts on to our screens on 1st July in the USA and 15th July in the UK.
Remember to keep America great!
