'The Forever Purge': Everything We Know So Far

'The Forever Purge': Everything We Know So Far

A lawless, endless, and more brutal purge is happening in July.

This article was recently reviewed and is up to date as of June 14, 2021.

The official trailer for 'The Forever Purge' is finally here, and it gives us a closer look at how the upcoming installment will be radically different from the previous films.

'The Forever Purge' is going to be the fifth and potentially the last movie in the 'Purge' horror franchise. This is probably why it risks getting away from the regular schemes of the previous flicks in an attempt to up its horror game.

The premise is simple: It's the Purge, but it's forever.

Several lawless people are keen on continuing the Purge, even when it's supposed to have ended already.

The script for the upcoming film was written by James DeMonaco, the same guy who created the 'Purge' franchise.

DeMonaco also serves as a producer for the film, alongside Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and Sébastien K. Lemercier.

Here's everything you need to know about 'The Forever Purge.'

When Will 'The Forever Purge' Release? 

Release Date: July 2, 2021.

'The Forever Purge' is among the unlucky films that were supposed to come out last year but were stalled due to the pandemic. It originally has a July 2020 premiere date but has been pushed back several times.

The release dates for 'The Forever Purge' have been moved several times. The film's latest release date was July 9, 2021. However, in April 2021, it was announced that the final installment in the Purge's franchise will be released a week earlier. It's now scheduled to come out on July 2, 2021.

What Is The Plot Of 'The Forever Purge'?

'The Forever Purge' is set after the events of 'Election Year.' The Purge has been subsequently abolished, but some people are keen to continue the gruesome hunt.

Adela and Juan (played by Ana de la Reguera and Tenoch Huerta, respectively) have lived a quiet and peaceful life in a Texan ranch after fleeing a drug cartel. They found solace in the distant place, thinking their purge is finally over and they have survived.

Unfortunately, they were wrong. They were soon targetted by a group of outsiders who are unlawfully planning to continue their version of Purge, hunting the couple down and everyone who comes to their aide.

The film also seems to send across a political message, with one of its characters saying, “You rich can’t hide behind your steel walls no more,” before showing that Americans will try to flee over the border to Mexico.

More than being a film depicting violence, director Everardo Gout says that The Forever Purge is a story of people from different races helping each other in times of cruelty and despair.

"It’s an amazing story of Latinos and Americans coming together to overcome despair and evil," he said in an interview via Collider.
