Well, it looks like The Purge 5 has snagged its official title.
THR just did a piece on what producer Jason Blum is up to in isolation, writing: “Blum is at home with his wife, writer Lauren Schuker Blum, and two children. There, he spends his days managing calls and prepping upcoming projects, including feature films The Forever Purge, Run Sweetheart Run and Halloween Kills and Showtime limited series The Good Lord Bird.”
Yes, you read that right, the next Purge movie will be called The Forever Purge.
Whatever that means.
The last time we saw the series on the big screen was in The First Purge back in 2018. That prequel centered on this synopsis: To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the others, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.
Rated R for strong disturbing violence throughout, pervasive language, some sexuality, and drug use, the film sports a 55% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: The First Purge should satisfy fans of the franchise and filmgoers in the mood for violent vicarious thrills, even if its subtextual reach exceeds its grasp.
The First Purge was directed by Gerard McMurray from a screenplay written by franchise creator James DeMonaco. Jason Blum produced with Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and Sébastien K. Lemercier. I starred Y’lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, and Steve Harris. Universal Pictures released it back on July 4, 2018. Buy it on Blu-ray right over HERE.
