when THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR, the third chapter in the
thrilling franchise, arrives on Digital HD on September 20, 2016
and on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on October 4,
2016, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. As the
government prepares for its annual Purge, the one night a year
when all crime is legal, America's New Founding Fathers are
faced with strong opposition from a presidential hopeful and her
supporters who wish to abolish the country's violent tradition.
With deleted scenes, a character spotlight, and a
behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, THE PURGE:
ELECTION YEAR offers viewers a closer look at the disturbing,
thought-provoking and timely thriller.
It has been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped
himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night – the
12 hours of lawlessness. This year, the annual ritual comes at
the eve of a heated presidential election with the nation deeply
divided between those who are pro- and anti-Purge. As head of
security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), Leo's
mission is to protect her during her controversial and contested
run for president. But when a betrayal forces them onto the
streets of Washington, D.C. on the one night when no help is
available, they must stay alive or both be sacrificed for their
sins against the state.
