It’s time to secure your home and pray that you can survive the night because The Purge 4 has officially been given the green light from Universal Pictures. The Purge franchise – over the past few years has given a rather dead horror genre; a much-needed makeover.
The Purge has become one of the most financially successful horror franchises to hit the big screens since Lionsgate’ mind fucking/gut wrenching (in a good way) hit of a franchise, Saw.
Platinum Dunes, #BlumHouse, and Universal Pictures team up for the fourth installment of the Purge. With three of the top horror influencers in hollywood, the Purge 4 is almost destined for immediate financial success.
The Purge 4 has been given a release date of July 4th, 2018. The Purges’ creator James DeMonaco will not be directing the film this year however he will continue to write the franchise and help in a more producer type role.
So far each Purge film has outperformed its previous instalment, its most recent #PurgeElectionYear earned almost $120 million worldwide, and only used a production budget of around $10 million – grossing universal at least $100 million.
