The First Purge official lowdown


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. This vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. However, the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized. Then contagion is expected to explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.

Coming off the most successful film in the series, The Purge: Election Year, creator James DeMonaco returns.

Cast includes Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez and Marisa Tomei. Directed by Gerard McMurray from a script by James DeMonaco.

Produced are Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller and Sébastien K Lemercier. Executive Producers are Steve Molen, Jeanette Volturno and Couper Samuelson.
