“The First Purge” Is Upon Us
After the success of three purge films, Universal Pictures brings us this origin story to show how it all began.
The Purge franchise tells the story of an alternate America where the government picks one day in the year as a law-free day. On this day, with a set of rules and regulations, everyone is allowed to commit any crime they choose and will not be punished or arrested for it.
This simple yet unexplored premise led to three successful films as the creators took a hard look at the lives of people when they realise that their actions do not have any consequences.
The First Purge is directed by Gerard McMurray and the screenplay is written by DeMonaco.
Watch the trailer here.
The film hits theatres on July 4.
