The Purge series has been winding up American conservatives since the first movie, but this fourth instalment, The First Purge, appears to be doubling down on the Trump allusions in its marketing campaign, kicking off with the release of the above cheeky poster and a 30 second TV spot full of mockingly patriotic stars 'n stripes imagery.

As its title implies, The First Purge takes us back to the origins of Purge Night, when all crime goes unpunished for a 12 hour period.

The First Purge is in UK/ROI cinemas July 6th.

The official synopsis reads:

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 marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.
