The sequel “The Forever Purge” had a mixed start at the US box office, with $ 15.8 million earned over the extended weekend.
The result represents the franchise’s worst debut, a record that previously belonged to the “First Night of Crime” prequel – which debuted with $ 17.3 million in 2018.
As well as being hit by the COVID pandemic, Terror has also suffered from stiff competition, overshadowed by the blockbuster ‘Fast and Furious 9’ and the debut of the animation ‘The Powerful Boss 2’, which reported US $ 32.7 million and US $ 23 million this weekend, respectively.
Audiences, however, seem to have enjoyed ‘A Night of Crime 5’, which earned a B rating from its audience. “12 Hours to Survive: Election Year” remains the highest rated film in the franchise, with a B +.
The feature film will be released in national theaters on August 19.
Keep in mind that the film received a Rated-R rating (for over 18s) for “extreme violence, bloody scenes and foul language”.
James DeMonaco, responsible for the screenplay for all films, will be responsible for the plot of the new feature film. The management will be with newcomer Everardo Gout.
The plot will take place after the events of “Election Year” and will focus on Adela (Reguera) and Juan (Huerta), who find refuge on a Texas ranch after fleeing a cartel in Mexico. Things go wrong when a group of strangers decide to continue serving beyond the allotted time, when people can break any law.
The cast is made up of Will Patton, Cassidy Freeman, Ana de la Reguera, Tenoch Huerta and Leven Rambin.
