The_Purge_Banner_4_3_13

Writer/Director James DeMonaco’s Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes-produced The Purge (formerly Vigilandia), starring Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder, Adelaide Kane, Edwin Hodge, Tony Oller and Rhys Wakefield, hits theaters on June 7th. That’s way closer than you think and the TV campaign for the film has already begun. Can’t wait to see this one!

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.

Directed by James DeMonaco (writer of Assault on Precinct 13 and The Negotiator), The Purge is produced by Jason Blum of Blumhouse (Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister), Platinum Dunes’ partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (The Amityville Horror, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), as well as Sébastien Kurt Lemercier (Assault on Precinct 13).

    The idea alone is very interesting…and damn scary.

    I can’t wait to see it. Living in Denmark it probably means a long wait, buhuu.

    The idea alone is very interesting…and damn preposterous!
    Anyway, it looks like a lot of fun and hopefully some good suspense. I’m of the few that really enjoy a good home invasion film (logical or not, it’s a reality based fear) and those masks alone make this look like a creepy fun time.

    This looks incredibly entertaining.
