Poster, Trailer Debut for The Purge Starring Ethan Hawke


I do love a poster with a creepy masked killer.  Moreover, a home invasion film with a promising scenario.  

Universal has revealed the poster and trailer for The Purge, the latest film from Blumhouse Productions.  There’s good buzz surrounding this one which stars Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey.  You can check out the trailer inside!

In an America wracked by crime, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity – including murder – is legal.  The police can¬ít be called.  Hospitals suspend help.  It is one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment.  On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family wrestles with the decision of who they will become when a stranger comes knocking.

James DeMonaco (writer of Assault on Precinct 13 and The Negotiator) directs.  Universal’s feelin’ confident so it’s dropping the film into the summer movie season.  Look for it May 31st!  (For our photo gallery, click here.)
