A simple and effective new poster has been revealed for The First Purge, the upcoming prequel in the popular Purge franchise. This one takes things back to the beginning to show what lead to the Purge’s creation and the effects it had on American society. As the poster showcases, America becomes a massive crime scene.
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 marginalised, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.
The First Purge will be the first film in this franchise not to be directed by James DeMonaco, but he has written the script. Gerard McMurray is taking the directing reigns this time round. The cast features Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez, and Marisa Tomei.
Check out the other recent posters below and be sure to check out The First Purge when it arrives on 4th July 2018. Happy Independence Day, indeed.
