The Purge: Election Year - first trailer

Frank Grillo is back, as the first trailer for The Purge 3 - now The Purge: Election Year - lands...

The Purge: Anarchy was, for our money, an example in how a sequel should be done. It took the core idea of the first film - an annual night where breaking the law is allowed - and expanded it significantly, adding a dose of John Carpenter into the mix.

Writer/director James DeMonaco is shepherding the third movie in the series for release this summer, with the terrific Frank Grillo returning to star. And the movie is currently scheduled for release on July 15th 2016.

Here, then, is the first trailer for The Purge 3 - now called The Purge: Election Year  - that’s just landed. Take a look and see what you reckon…

And here's the synopsis too...

Blu-ray Impressions: The Green Inferno, Sinister 2, The Visit

15 January 2016 2:41 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Caged and waiting to be eaten. Visited by the dead at nightfall. Asked to climb into the oven to clean it. The characters in The Green Inferno, Sinister 2, and The Visit are faced with horror of many forms, and while their scary situations are vastly different from one another, all of their stories can now be experienced on Blu-ray.

The Green Inferno: Hopeful for change, the student activists travel to the Amazon rainforest to save a tribe threatened by deforestation, only to be captured by the natives and placed on the menu. In The Green Inferno, Eli Roth exposes viewers to a palpable sense of primal fear, realistically placing his young cast of well-meaning characters in a horrifying “what if?” situation made all the more real by the filming location: a village deep in the jungles of Peru.

Flickering Myth looks ahead to 2016…

It’s the future! And with the New Year officially upon us (we’re five days into it after all), we sat down to vote for our most anticipated movies of 2016, and below are the results. Each writer had five votes, which were then collated into scores and tallied to create our Top 10 list. What’s in it? Well let’s find out.

10. Silence (dir. Martin Scorsese)

Starring Adam Driver, Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, Ciarán Hinds

Scorsese returns to the big screen in 2016 with his latest film Silence, which sees an impressive cast taking on a historical drama. It’s based on a novel, and is the director’s first film since 2013’s Wolf of Wall Street. With Adam Driver impressing audiences and critics through Star Wars: The Force Awakens, expect a lot of hype prior to its release. The movie topped only one of our writer’s lists, »

'Doctor Strange' Enters His Sanctum Sanctorum in New Concept Art

4 January 2016 3:21 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we got our first official look at Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme in new photos and concept art from Marvel's Doctor Strange. These images came courtesy of Entertainment Weekly's new print edition. Today, Marvel has released the official versions of these images, along with a brand new piece of concept art that offers a look inside Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum.

Doctor Strange, which started production in November, tells the story of Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), an acclaimed neurosurgeon who uncovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions after a near-fatal car accident. The film will show audiences corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe never before explored, thanks to director Scott Derrickson. Doctor Strange is set for release on November 4, going up against Warner Bros.' Bastards and 20th Century Fox's Trolls.

The supporting cast for Doctor Strange includes Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, »

Giveaway – Win A Free Bluray of Sinister 2!!

4 January 2016 1:28 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Scott Derrickson’s Sinister was a hit with horror fans, so when it came time to tackle a sequel to the 2012 shocker, it seemed like a followup would be a surefire success. Unfortunately, a lot of genre lovers didn’t show up to see the Derrickson/C. Robert Cargill-written Sinister 2 (on Blu-ray & DVD January 12th), and it’s a shame, as it was quite easily one of my favorite films of 2015. Stepping in to direct the sequel was Citadel‘s Ciaran Foy, who not only gave the genre a solid followup, but one that was also better than the 2012 original. Like our previous two giveaways, we’ve partnered up with Universal to give one lucky reader a Bluray copy of Sinister 2, so by all means, enter!
