On a 3 million dollar budget, "The Purge" has already managed to earn an impressive 16 million dollars on Friday alone.
The movie is set in America, where one night a year, Crime is not illegal. Everyone locks their doors with dead bolts and any other protection that they can. If you can survive the night, you are good to go.
Ethan ( ugly as hell) Hawk and his family get in the middle of a murder squad when a young family member allows the one they are hunting sanctuary in their house.
All Hell then breaks loose as they try to outwit these deadly intruders or risk losing their lives if they fail.
At this point, " The Purge" is on pace to earn between 42-47 million this weekend.
Will it be the biggest indie film/surprise hit of the year? Just more proof that you do not need a 200 million dollar budget to make a hit movie. Just some form of creativity or an interesting idea.
