Undoubtedly the new President of the United States is the main focus when it comes to inspiration, and now “The Purge” saga is giving its headlight.
When this horror thriller was released for the first time, we could appreciate what seemed to be a horrible US dystopia. Crimes, murders, one night every year where it is legal in the US to “purge” people’s darker impulses.
But the real world has become a little crazier after that. Something that definitely gave the production of this film good material for a new installment.
The Purge 4, a look into reality?
Universal has released the first poster that gives the arrival to the Purge saga fourth film. Just by seeing it, you can already imagine where the thing is going. Titled The First Purge, this film will be a prequel detailing how this country reached the point of the first purge.
The central point of this poster is the red cap. That gives us some idea of who can be the inspiration for this poster. We do not want to be judgemental, but it is more than clear who these hints are for. Trump, we hope you do not take it personally.
We can hear the synopsis:
“To boost the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that ventilates aggression for a night in a community. But when the violence of the oppressors meets the fury of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the borders of the city of trial and will spread throughout the nation. “

Make America Great Again
Something even more fun and curious is that this poster was announced to the public at the beginning of the state of President Trump’s union. This installment will be on all screens on July 4th. Although the trailer does not reveal much, we can see the patriotic images of the United States. Among the stars and stripes that float in the breeze, minor league baseball games and fireworks over the iconic Statue of Liberty.
It is not the first time that this saga highlights the political aspect. The third film released in 2016 was called The Purge: Election Year, which follows a politician who wanted to end the murderous practice once and for all. Prepare to show support for The First Purge. This film will not leave loose ends. The true cause of this annual ritual will be finally revelead.
