Now, this is what you call great timing. Universal and Blumhouse used last night’s State of the Union address to reveal The First Purge – the next instalment in The Purge franchise – with a teaser poster and an announcement teaser dropping online and airing on TV. Watch it below:
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.
Starring Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez and Marisa Tomei, the film is released July 4 in the U.S. and July 6 in the UK.
