The Purge series is moving back in time! The next installment is a prequel which will take place on the very first night of the purge. For a 12-hour long period, all crime, including murder will be legal in one isolated community. Make sure to lock all your doors because you could be the next target.
To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.
The First Purge is directed by Gerard McMurray (Burning Sands), working from a screenplay once again written by DeMonaco. The film stars Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez, and Marisa Tomei.
Be prepared to watch the prequel on July 4th, 2018.
