The teaser trailer for The First Purge looks to make America great again

It was always a case of who was going to get there first and it seems that Blumhouse are about to lead the way. The teaser trailer and poster for The First Purge has arrived leaning heavily on patriotic imagery and Trump's famous red baseball cap.

Behind every tradition lies a revolution. Next Independence Day, witness the rise of America's 12 hours of annual lawlessness. Welcome to the movement that began as a simple experiment: The First Purge. To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) 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 marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.

Gerard McMurray (Burning Sands) directs with an ensemble cast including Y'Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez and Marisa Tomei.

The First Purge is released in the US on July 4th, naturally, and gets a UK release two days later on July 6th.
