The summer is looking hot as one film I’m extremely excited about is the Assault on Precinct 13-esque The Purge, which comes from director James DeMonaco.
In theaters June 7th, a new one-sheet has preemed that gives warning of the 12-hour emergency services suspension. Population control will get under way with a half-day of murder and mayhem starring Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder, Adelaide Kane, Edwin Hodge, Tony Oller, and Rhys Wakefield.
“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.”
