'The Forever Purge' Trailer: Crime Never Ends in Fifth Film in Franchise

Brian Welk

What if the annual Purge didn’t stop at daybreak and instead continued its streak of murderous, lawless mayhem forever? That’s the premise of “The Forever Purge,” in which a sect of marauders conspire to make sure this year’s Purge has no end.

“The Forever Purge” is the fifth and potentially final film in the horror franchise, which imagines an America in which crime has largely been eliminated by making all crime, including murder, legal for one day.

The franchise has evolved over the years from a simple home invasion movie to a social commentary and satire about the election and American politics.

This latest entry aims to continue that streak. Everardo Gout, who has been a director on the series “Mars,” “The Terror” and “Snowpiercer,” is taking up directing duties on “The Forever Purge,” and the franchise’s original writer James DeMonaco is returning to write the script based on his characters.

“The Forever Purge” picks up after the conclusion of the year’s latest Purge, with all crime returning to being illegal. But when an an underground movement no longer satisfied with one annual night of anarchy and murder decides to overtake America through an unending campaign of mayhem and massacre, no one is safe. The film follows two families in Texas fighting back against a gang of killers as the rest of the country begins to spiral into chaos around them.

Ana de la Reguera stars in the film alongside Tenoch Huerta, Josh Lucas, Cassidy Freeman, Leven Rambin, Alejandro Edda and Will Patton.

The film’s producers are Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, James DeMonaco and Sébastien K. Lemercier and executive producers are Marcei A. Brown, Everardo Gout and Jeanette Volturno.

“The Forever Purge” was originally meant to open in theaters last July but was pushed back due to the pandemic. Universal will now release the film July 2, 2021 in theaters. Check out the first trailer here and above.
