I was a big fan for “The Purge” last year. The idea that for one night a year, all crime is legal was an interesting concept. The film was made on the cheap, for about $3 million, and managed to make upwards of $90 million at the box office. Needless to say, a sequel was immediately put into production. “The Purge: Anarchy” will hit theaters next month and there’s no telling how much more money this out-of-nowhere franchise can climb.
Now you can experience “The Purge” before it hits theaters in July. Universal Pictures is hosting a touring exhibition called “The Purge: Breakout,” which gives fans a chance to “release the beast” before they watch the sequel film. Below is a trailer for the exhibition and new movie poster for the film. You’ll also find a list of tour dates, along with more info about “The Purge: Breakout.” Read the synopsis of the movie below:
“The Purge is a night where all crime is legal and all hospitals, fire stations and police stations in the United States are closed down for 12 hours. A couple (Zach Gilford and Kiele Sanchez) are driving home to their kids when their car runs out of gas just as the Purge commences, and they flee from masked attackers on motorcycles and minibikes. Meanwhile, a man (Frank Grillo) goes out into the streets to get revenge on the man (Brandon Keener) who killed his son and a mother and daughter (Carmen Ejogo and Zoe Soul) run from their home after assailants destroy it. The five people meet up as they attempt to survive the night in Los Angeles.”
The sequel stars Frank Grillo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, Michael K. Williams, Carmen Ejogo, and Billy Parker. James DeMonaco wrote and directed the new film.
