The New Founding Fathers invite you to witness The First Purge, the origin story and fourth chapter of the much-loved franchise on Digital and the app Movies Anywhere next week.
When the New Founding Fathers of America look to push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, a radical sociological theory that vents aggression is tested among an isolated community. But once the violence of oppressors clashes with the rage of the marginalized, the contagion of the experiment explodes and rapidly spreads, leading to a revolution. The First Purge takes audiences back to where the nightmare all began in this timely and relevant horror-thriller, including gripping bonus features appealing to fans of the franchise.
“Now with the New Founding Fathers of America in charge of America’s political landscape, change is inevitably coming. When Dr. Updale (Marisa Tomei) presents the chance for a risky, theoretical social experiment to become a live phenomenon, The Purge is born. Once Dmitri (Y’Lan Noel) is aware that his hometown of Staten Island has been selected to partake in the monumental social study that will forever change the way citizens interact with their government and neighbors alike, he naturally becomes suspicious of its purpose. Alongside community activist Nya (Lex Scott Davis) and her younger brother Isaiah (Joivan Wade), the three take to the streets of the first ever purge to protect their city and seek to survive at the risk of their own lives.”
Directed by Gerard McMurray and written by James DeMonaco, The First Purge was produced by Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and Sébastien K. Lemercier p.g.a. and executive produced by James DeMonaco, Steven R. Molen, Jeanette Volturno, and Couper Samuelson.
