New poster for The First Purge touches on political climate in US

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures decided to release a new poster for the latest Purge film, The First Purge, on Tuesday — the day of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.

I mean, just look at the darn thing:

The First Purge is the fourth film in a series that surprisingly continues to be a box office buster. Take a look at the numbers:

  • The Purge, $64,473,115
  • The Purge: Anarchy, $71,962,800
  • The Purge: Election Year, $79,213,375

It’s to be expected that The First Purge may do similar number to Anarchy, but it nonetheless is more motivation for Blumhouse to continue touching on the current U.S. political climate.

The First Purge is directed by Gerard McMurray and stars Patch Darragh, Luna Lauren Velez and Mo McRae.
