Coming in third is Universal’s The Purge: Election Year with a very strong $30.8 million three-day, heading toward a four-day weekend that could top $35 million. The three-day performance is just a hair over the $29.8 million brought in by The Purge: Anarchy two years ago as the franchise is showing zero signs of decay now that it has three films under its belt. Given the $10 million production budget and the fact Election Year scored the highest CinemaScore of all three Purge films it almost goes without saying a fourth film is likely in the works.
This massive change in direction majorly helps with the watch-ability of the film immensely as does the game and ever so badass, Frank Grillo, who proves himself to be a formidable action star as does his co-star, Elizabeth Mitchell.
