Behind every tradition lies a revolution. Next Independence Day, witness the rise of our country’s 12 hours of annual lawlessness. Welcome to the movement that began as a simple experiment: The First Purge. 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.

James DeMonaco, who’s written and directed the three films to date, is writing and producing this one. Directorial duties have gone to Gerard McMurray. The movie, meanwhile, is set to land in cinemas this July in the US and UK.

Expect a trailer shortly…
