The next entry in the PURGE franchise is going to be a prequel that takes us back to the beginning of the Purge, that twelve hour period when all crime is legal in the United States.

Purge: The Island depicts first, experimental Purge Night on Staten Island

I'm not the biggest fan of THE PURGE . The first film specifically. I have not seen the second or the third. Nothing against them, life is short and I've got tons of TWIN PEAKS to rewatch. Regardless of what I think, or don't think of THE PURGE flicks, they seem to be super popular with the masses so who am I to judge? Exactly. With that in mind today we have news that...

Frank Grillo may be done with the Purge franchise

I enjoyed THE PURGE , but THE PURGE: ANARCHY took the franchise to a whole new level, and a lot of what made the sequel such an entertaining experience was the presence of Frank Grillo in the cast as tormented ass-kicker Sergeant - a character I basically saw as being Marvel's The Punisher, dropped into the PURGE world. With Sergeant's story being wrapped up at the end...

The Purge 4 and a Purge TV show are in development

Each PURGE movie makes more money than the previous, so it's a given that writer/director James DeMonaco's franchise is going to continue in some way. However, after watching THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR I was convinced that the most satisfying way forward would be to go backward and make a prequel about the early days of The Purge, that  annual 12-hour period in...

Purge: Election Year just became the highest grossing film in the franchise

So much for THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR being the final film in the PURGE franchise.

That's right, ELECTION YEAR just passed $114.2 million in the global box office, as opposed to the original PURGE 's...
