Innocence is lost in The First Purge trailer, the origins story on how and why it all started, CelebNMovies247.com reports.
We learned in the previous Purge films that our New Founding Fathers of America started the Purge to cleanse America of crime. Well in The First Purge trailer, we learn otherwise. The New Founding Fathers of America try out a sociological theory that allowing people to vent aggression for one night in an isolated community will somehow drive the crime rate down.
The First Purge zeroes in on one family, with Lex Scott Davis’ character trying to prevent the coming violence. All four films center on America having devolved into a culture where murder is legal for 12 hours one night every year.
In the trailer you see the beginning of the Purge and how government is killing the people on medicare, low income and homeless. You also see the beginning of resistance chanting “Do Not Purge,” while soldiers dressed as civilians urge other civilians to join in.
The First Purge is directed by Gerard McMurray (“Burning Sands”) from a screenplay written by James DeMonaco. The film also stars Y’Lan Noel (Insecure), Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez, and Marisa Tomei, the New Founding Fathers.
