Ethan Hawke will be re-teaming with his Blumhouse friends for the upcoming high concept horror film The Purge. It takes place in a futuristic America where crime rates are super low and unemployment is almost non-existent. The reason behind this is sort of “out there”, but keep following me.
One night a year all criminal activity is legal. You literally can go around murdering people all day until the clock strikes.
It sounds a little hokey, but the trailer is cut with just the right amount of bizarre. I’m up for another R-rated film from the guys behind the effective and creepy Sinister, even if they had their hands in Paranormal Activity.
The Purge opens on May 31st, 2013.
Check out the first trailer below:
