Posted April 5th, 2013 at 2:00 pm


The first trailer has arrived for the upcoming horror film The Purge. Starring Lena Headey and Ethan Hawke the story centers on a family protecting themselves from a home invasion in a time when the prison system in the US has overflowed forcing the government to sanction a 12-hour period in which all criminal activity is legal. The Purge is slated to release on May 31.

If on one night every year, you could commit any crime without facing consequences, what would you do? In The Purge, a speculative thriller that follows one family over the course of a single night, four people will be tested to see how far they will go to protect themselves when the vicious outside world breaks into their home.
