The Purge is an annual night where all crime - including murder - is legal. After years of crime rates growing out of control, a no tolerance approach on law breakers was enforced on citizens. Anyone found to be breaking the law on a night that wasn't the allocated date
For each person who supports the night there are people who have fallen victim to the crimes it brings and wish it to be brought to an end. A set of the rich sociality with a dark and dangerous sadistic secret pay to see people murdered and happily watch on whilst the victims suffer horrendous violence. Innocent people are frequently killed on Purge nights - anyone seen as an easy target can find themselves in life threatening situations.
Senator Charlene Roan was one such victim, years earlier she lost her family on Purge night and now she's running for president to have the night banned. On what could potentially be the last purge night in history, the senator finds herself in danger; despite going to extreme caution and recruiting the most reliable people to protect her, she and security force find themselves targets.

Actress Elizabeth Mitchell feels guilty for losing so much weight while filming TV remake V - because she's always urged women to love their curves.
The former Lost star plays an alien-fighting federal agent in the new U.S. series, based on the 1983 show, and the role involves plenty of stunt-work and high-energy action scenes.
Mitchell's body has been transformed by her tough training regime - but instead of being pleased with her new slim figure, she's feeling "terrible".
She tells the Press Association, "I've lost weight which makes me feel terrible because I've always said that women should look the way they look, but you know, when you're stick fighting and throwing knives all day, you tend to drop a few pounds. And I run a lot, I'm always on my feet and I'm always beating people up... I'm a 40-year-old female action hero."

The actress, who played kindly Mrs Claus in family film The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, was too busy to organise a Halloween party last weekend (31Oct09), so she has decided to trick her son into thinking the spookiest night of the year hasn't happened yet.
She explains, "Every single time kids in costumes would come up (to the door) my husband would be like, 'Look over there'. We're gonna stage a Halloween. I talked to my neighbours (and) we're gonna give them all candy and they're just gonna give it all back to us.
"We're dressing as a Scooby (Doo) mystery."

The Tomb Raider star appeared in 1998 film Gia, based on a true life story about a supermodel who contracts HIV from an infected needle and dies at the age of 26.
Jolie strips naked during the picture, which she filmed before making it as a Hollywood star, and she's shown kissing Mitchell in the new high definition version.
The Lost star shared a bed with Hollywood beauty Jolie in the 1998 TV movie, based on the life of top 1970s fashion model Gia Carangi - and she is convinced she owes her screen career to the tattered shirt.
She says, "It was a man's shirt, but it looked expensive, and I was broke and sleeping on floors - so I took it.
"(Then) good things started happening. It's my lucky charm!"

Against all odds, the e-happy Santa Clause series is back with a third installment, which involves Santa (Tim Allen) facing off against the Napoleon-complexed Jack Frost (Martin Short), who's got his eyes on the prize of being the supremo wintertime icon. His idea is to take advantage of a rare "escape clause" which lets Santa step down willingly if he says a certain phrase, so Frost can sieze the big red suit. Naturally, trickery is involved. Apparently Jack Frost is a very bad boy. You can tell by the fright wig hairdo.

At least one of the seven credited writers of the sequel-for-sequel's-sake holiday kiddie flick "The Santa Clause 2" clearly felt obliged to try to remedy the picture's contemptibly contrived premise by writing some really funny dialogue. And at least for-hire director Michael Lembeck (a sitcom vet making his screen debut) managed to infuse the movie with a fun, touching, sweet spirit.
But these acts are akin to Christmas miracles, coming as they do under the burden of a plot -- scratch that, a gimmick -- that revolves around finding even more fine print on the calling card of a dead St. Nick, which turned divorced suburban dad Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) into Santa Claus in the original family comedy from 1994.
It seems the elves waited eight years to inform their new Santa that he has until this Christmas to find a Mrs. Claus -- or else. "The de-Santafication process has already begun," frets head elf Bernard (David Krumholtz) as he shoos Scott off to find a wife. Meanwhile cherubic techie-elf Curtis (played by Spencer Breslin, one of those child actors who runs all his lines together without taking a breath or showing a hint of inflection) clones a big, rubbery toy Santa automaton (played by Allen in heavy prosthetic makeup) to stand in for Scott (unconvincingly) so the other elves won't learn of his predicament and panic at his absence.
