Joivan Wade leads cast in the fourth installment of The Purge film series from Blumhouse, Universal and Platinum Dunes.

This chapter serves as a prequel, focusing on the events that lead up to the inaugural Purge event where, for a 12-hour period, all crime is legal.

To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America 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 others, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.

Gerard McMurray directs a script by franchise creator James DeMonaco, who wrote and directed the previous three films. DeMonaco is producing with Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form and Sébastien K. Lemercier.

The dystopian action horror film also stars Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Luna Lauren Velez and Marisa Tomei and hit cinemas worldwide July 2018.
