The final chapter in The Purge saga will unfold in a month–and several new posters now shed some light on the frightful happenings on the horizon.
The Forever Purge–with the tagline, “The rules are broken”–will hit theaters July 2, at the start of the Independence Day weekend, as reported by comicbook.com. And from the looks of the posters on this page, there will be fireworks a’plenty.
The movie, the fifth entry in the successful franchise, follows a Texas couple–Adela (Ana de la Reguera) and her husband Juan (Tenoch Huerta). Juan works as a ranch hand for the wealthy Tucker family, and he impresses the boss, Caleb (Will Patton), but angers his son, Dylan (Josh Lucas).
And then the annual Purge strikes. On the morning after, a masked gang of killers swoops down on the ranch and endangers everyone–including Dylan’s wife (Cassidy Freeman) and his sister (Leven Rambin). Both families band together and fight back “as the country spirals into chaos and the United States begins to disintegrate around them,” according to the official synopsis.
The Forever Purge–from Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes–is directed by Everardo Gout from a screenplay by franchise creator James DeMonaco. Producers include Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, Sebastien Lemercier and DeMonaco.
The original 2013 The Purge–written and directed by DeMonaco–is set in a dystopian America that celebrates an annual holiday called the Purge when all crime–including murder–is legal for a 12-hour period. The franchise has been a commercial juggernaut–raking in more than $450 million worldwide on a combined budget of just $35 million.
