‘The First Purge’ Hits $100 Million and Becomes Franchise’s Biggest International Success

The First Purge, released earlier this month, has returned impressive box office results, particularly overseas. The movie, brought to you by Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions, has raked in about $104.85 million internationally, making it the highest-grossing title in the Purge franchise at the international box office, according to Deadline.

Despite Europe’s attention being largely turned to the World Cup in early July, the movie managed to cash in healthy profits throughout the continent. To be precise: the UK made $6.2 million, France came in at $5.5 million, Spain scored $4.5 million, and Germany $4.4 million. Mexican moviegoers added $5.4 million to the film’s total international box office. All in all, The First Purge is the third movie in the series to break the $100 million threshold.

  1. Shouts out to The First Purge director Gerard McMurry and the movies main actors Y'LAN NOEL and Lex Scott Davis.They made a neat action thriller with some current political overtones mixed in. Good flick imo.

  2. I like the purge but it's having a Saw / Paranormal activity / final destination problem…..they need to end the series now cause it's declining on how actually good the movie was.
