An amalgamation of horror and thrills have been thrown together in Blumhouse Productions, Platinum Dunes and Universal's new crime thriller 'The Purge'. A new trailer and one-sheet have been revealed from the production set to open at the end of next month in the US. The high-concept movie stars Ethan Hawke ('Sinister') and Lena Headey ('Game of Thrones') as a couple whose family are put at risk during a national annual 'purge' that allows all crimes to become legal for a period of 12 hours. The project comes from writer/director James DeMonaco and it co-stars Edwin Hodge, Max Burkholder, Rhys Wakefield, Tony Oller and Adelaide Kane. Check out the full synopsis, trailer and one-sheet below.

"If on one night every year, you could commit any crime without facing consequences, what would you do? In The Purge, a speculative thriller that follows one family over the course of a single night, four people will be tested to see how far they will go to protect themselves when the vicious outside world breaks into their home.

In an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity—including murder—becomes legal. The police can’t be called. Hospitals suspend help. It’s 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.

When an intruder breaks into James Sandin’s (Ethan Hawke) gated community during the yearly lockdown, he begins a sequence of events that threatens to tear a family apart. Now, it is up to James, his wife, Mary (Lena Headey), and their kids to make it through the night without turning into the monsters from whom they hide."

'The Purge' opens stateside on 31 May.
