The Purge franchise is slated to come to an end with THE FOREVER PURGE, the fifth and final installment of the series. The film was originally slated to hit theaters last summer, but obviously COVID-19 put a stop to that. The Forever Purge will finally premiere on July 9th, and Total Film has the first image from thriller which you can check out below.
Taking place after the events of The Purge: Election Year, The Forever Purge will focus on “Adela (Ana de la Reguera) and Juan (Tenoch Huerta), who find solace at a Texan ranch, having fled a drug cartel in Mexico. Things go awry when a group of outsiders decide to keep purging beyond the allotted time when people can break any and all laws.“ The Forever Purge was directed by Everardo Gout, taking over from franchise creator/writer James DeMonaco, who wrote and directed the first three films, and Gerard McMurray, who directed The First Purge. While speaking with Total Film, Gout said, “It’s an amazing story of Latinos and Americans coming together to overcome despair and evil.” Gout added that creator DeMonaco told him that he wanted to “set the record straight” when it comes to the themes and violence of the series.
‘I want my intentions to be crystal clear on what I think about violence and what’s going on in the world.’ That’s what he told me. It’s dystopian, but he’s trying to get us to look in the mirror. It makes you think, ‘Shit, if I get pushed into a corner, would I do the same?’ Once you open that door, how do you close it again?
The Forever Purge will debut on July 9, 2021.
