You can read the synopsis for The First Purge here:
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 marginalised, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.
The film stars Marisa Tomei, Lex Scott Davis, Luna Lauren Velez Melonie Diaz, Mo McRea, Steve Harris, Y’lan Noel, Jermel Howard and Patch Darragh.
The First Purge is released on 4 July. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
