Posted on April 3, 2013 at 12:58 pm by Jess Hicks

Writer/Director James DeMonaco has created a new kind of America in his first major film, The Purge (formerly Vigilandia). From Platinum Dunes and Blumhouse (producers of Paranormal Activity and Sinister) we got an official trailer, poster, images, and a brand new synopsis.

In an America wracked by crime, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity—including murder—is legal. The police can’t be called. Hospitals suspend help. It is one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment. On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family wrestles with the decision of who they will become when a stranger comes knocking

The Purge stars Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder, Adelaide Kane, Edwin Hodge, Tony Oller and Rhys Wakefield. Check out the trailer and images below!

The Purge hits theaters May 31st, 2013.


    • Holy smokes that looks intense. Home invasion movies always freak me out. I'll have to watch it though to support Lena Headey.
