All the info on IMDB and general Google searches show ‘The Purge’ releasing on May 31st – so we were a bit confused when we saw the new poster with the date June 7th.
With a couple phone calls iHorror can confirm that ‘The Purge‘ will indeed be released on June 7th.
No official reason for the delay has been released, however, we think it might be due to a larger then expected hype around a competing film due to release May 31st ‘After Earth‘.
Synopsis of ‘The Purge‘:
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 can’t 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.
