The First Purge, the upcoming fourth instalment of the hit Purge series, takes us back to the beginning with a look at how the controversial Purge Night, when all crime in the US is legal for a 12 hour period, came to be.

Series creator James DeMonaco returns as writer, with Gerard McMurray (Burning Sands) taking over director duties this time around. Marisa Tomei returns some star power to a franchise that has favoured relatively unknown actors since Ethan Hawke's appearance in the first film. Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade and Luna Lauren Velez also star.

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.
