You a fan of The Purge franchise? Personally – I could take it or leave it but- I have to admit that this prequel (of sorts) has got my attention with their first teaser trailer. Playing heavily off the current political climate – it certainly hits home.
The synopsis lays it all out for your vote:
“Behind every tradition lies a revolution. Next Independence Day, witness the rise of our country’s 12 hours of annual lawlessness. Welcome to the movement that began as a simple experiment: The First Purge.
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.”
Gerard McMurray directs with Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez and Marisa Tomei all attempting to survive the night.
July 4th brings freedom to this one so – do your part – be an American and support The Purge!
