America's soul is at stake in new The Purge: Election Year trailer

I thought the best thing about THE PURGE: ANARCHY was the character played by Frank Grillo, a father-in-mourning and man of action who really reminded me of The Punisher. I enjoyed watching him fight his way through ANARCHY, and it's great to see that the character will once again be front and center in THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR . Judging from the new trailer, which can be...

I haven't seen the adaptation of her novel DARK PLACES yet, but the adaptation of GONE GIRL was so good that I'm interested in checking out any Flynn projects that come along.
