With May around the corner, the summer movie season is about to officially begin. I did a Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2016 list at the beginning of the year but I wanted to look at the summer movies specifically. It’s my favorite time of year and there’s a lot to look forward to. It looks like any weekend not spent laying on a beach will be spent seeing a movie.
The Purge: Election Year
Honestly, my first reaction when seeing this trailer was released was “holy crap they are making another one of these?” It’s not necessarily a bad thing. I’ve actually enjoyed both of the previous movies. I wasn’t sure there was anywhere else they could go with it but the trailer proved me wrong. It looks like another strong and interesting premise in this series I originally thought was going nowhere. The whole idea of “The Purge” is interesting in itself so it isn’t surprising they keep expanding on it. This one brings back Frank Grillo, who was by far the best part of the second movie as the conflicted cop. I definitely don’t have a problem with them making another movie, especially since they are moving in a different direction. I think the trailer gives away a little too much, but am still interested in and excited to see this third installment. Check out the trailer below:
