As we reported yesterday, Universal Pictures' The Purge is a hit with audiences at the box office, taking in an impressive $36.3 million in its opening weekend. A big part of this success is star Ethan Hawke and producer Jason Blum, who teamed up last year for the horror film Sinister. Ethan Hawke plays James Sandin in The Purge, a father and husband whose world is upended when criminals invade his gated community during the one night out of the year that every crime is fully legal. Todd Gilchrist sat down with the star and producer recently, and you can see what they both had to say in our exclusive video interview.
