‘The Forever Purge’ Trailer Drops Before July Premiere

It’s the end of the line for The Purge franchise–and the popular series is looking to go out in a blaze of Fourth of July fireworks.

The fifth and final installment in the series–The Forever Purge–will hit theaters July 2, according to a recent press release, right at the start of the big Independence Day weekend. And a trailer from the film can be viewed on this page to get you in the proper frame of mind for the horrors to come.

The Forever Purge–from Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes–continues the horrifying tale laid out by the previous films in the series. Set in Texas, “members of an underground movement–no longer satisfied with the annual night of anarchy and murder–decide to overtake America through an unending campaign of mayhem and massacre. No one is safe,” according to the official synopsis.

In this setting is Adela and her husband Juan, who works on the ranch owned by the wealthy Tucker clan. On the morning after the Purge, a gang of masked killers attacks the Tucker family, “forcing both families to band together and fight back as the country spirals into chaos and the United States begins to disintegrate around them.”

The film–directed by Everardo Gout (Days of Grace) from a screenplay by franchise creator James DeMarco–stars Ana de la Reguera, Tenoch Huerta, Josh Lucas, Cassidy Freeman, Leven Rambin, Alejandro Edda and Will Patton.

The producers include Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, as well as DeMonaco and Sebastien Lemercier. Marcei Brown, Jeanette Volturno and Gout serve as executive producers.

The original 2013 The Purge–written and directed by DeMonaco–starred Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane and Max Burkholder. The film was set in a dystopian America that celebrated an annual holiday called the Purge when all crime–including murder–was legal for a 12-hour period. The franchise has been a box office sensation to this point, grossing more than $450 million worldwide on a combined budget of just $35 million.
