Blumhouse's 'The Purge' has surprisingly been pushed back a week and will now skip its late May release and land in theatres stateside on Friday 7 June. Writer/director James DeMonaco helms the crime thriller which takes place in a world where crime, including murder, is legalised for 12 hours every year. With a great sounding concept it seems a shame to waste it all on what appears to simply be a home invasion thriller but perhaps there's more to it than just that. 'The Purge' stars Ethan Hawke ('Sinister'), Lena Headey ('Game of Thrones'), Edwin Hodge, Max Burkholder, Rhys Wakefield, Tony Oller and Adelaide Kane. Check out the previously released trailer and one-sheet below.
"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 canít 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."
