The low-budget dystopian horror pic had been widely expected to change course due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. From Blumhouse and Universal, The Forever Purge film is the fifth and possibly final installment in the blockbuster microbudgeted franchise. Platinum Dunes is also a producer.
The first four films have grossed more than $466 million at the global box office against a combined production budget of just $36 million. Set in the near future, the storyline centers on an annual holiday known as the Purge and a 12-hour period where all crimes are allowed.
Warner Bros. is still hoping to open Christopher Nolan’s tentpole Tenet on July 17; Disney’s tentpole Mulan follows on July 24.
