The Forever Purge won't release in July amid Covid-19 pandemic

The Forever Purge was pushed back from theaters by Universal on Friday due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The franchise is set in a dystopian world order that celebrates an annual national holiday known as the Purge in which all crimes, including murder, are legal for a 12-hour period. This is the latest film in a slew of movies to be pushed back as the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread across the globe, affecting everyday life and businesses from normal operations. Among some of the biggest films to be delayed include Daniel Craig’s final turn as James Bond in No Time to Die, Marvel’s Black Widow, Disney’s Mulan and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights.
