Universal Pictures has released a brand new trailer for The Purge prequel, The First Purge, and it’s channeling Donald Trump.

The Purge series is a bit of an odd entity. I mean they don’t do well critically but they make good at the box office. In case you missed it, the premise of The Purge movies is that in the near future America has one night a year where all crime is legal. From murder to public urination and everything in-between.

The first one was a waste of a good concept and the low budget second one was a lot more fun as Frank Grillo (Crossbones) violently makes his way across a Purge enacted city. The third one came out during an election year and I haven’t seen it yet, but I can’t imagine what it’s about.

This year, we’re getting a prequel which tells the story of the First Purge and about why it’s so damn American to Purge. Check out the trailer below:

Go back to the beginning in cinemas on July 4. Can’t help thinking that clashes with something else?
