Are audiences, for a third time, willing to imagine one day a year where murder is legalized? With 2013′s The Purge and this year’s The Purge: Anarchy grossing over $200 million on a combined budget of only $12 million, I’d say that the answer is yes. It makes total sense that Universal would look to the producers for a Purge 3 in the increasingly successful series that turns our friends and neighbors into mask-wearing psychopaths.

Deadline reports that James DeMonaco, screenwriter and director on the first two films, will return to write and direct. It’s unclear how the plot will deviate from the earlier films besides the masks being even more creepy.

This trailer for Ouija focuses on a group of teenagers that didn’t get the memo about using Ouija boards in haunted houses where someone was recently murdered being a terrible idea.

It looks like a pretty by-the-numbers horror movie with no real innovation. Girl is killed in murder house, friends go to murder house to communicate via Ouija board, an evil spirit answers the call and acts like a dick for the next 80 minutes. If only they’d chosen to play Bananagrams instead.

Navy SEAL teams aren’t the only ones getting love from Hollywood these days. Universal Pictures is putting together a film that takes a realistic look at the training that the Treasury Department agents known as the Secret Service go through.

The film will be an adaptation of a Washington Post article by Laura Blumenfeld, penned by screenwriter Greg Poirier, who has the dubious distinction of having written National Treasure: Book of Secrets. The film won’t be quite as high-concept as In the Line of Fire. Rather, it will take a more day-to-day approach to the agents and trainees.

Deadline states that an “everyman aspect” could be adopted to this film due to the fact that applicants to the Secret Service aren’t required to have a law enforcement background. Did someone say “Police Academy?” Yup. I did. Let me be clearer. I very much hope this film is exactly like Police Academy. There. I said it.
