“Behind every tradition lies a revolution.”
The Purge franchise continues this 4th of July with The First Purge, from director Gerard McMurray and screenwriter James DeMonaco, the franchise’s creator. Today, we get a look at how the annual night of chaos and murder began in the film’s first teaser trailer.
We should also talk about the new poster that puts a new twist on Trump’s iconic red hat and slogan of “Make America Great Again” and replaces it with “The First Purge”. Political statement? Maybe, but I think it’s hilarious.
“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.”
