'The Purge' Trailer: Kinda Like 'The Hunger Games' For Adults

So what would happen if "The Hunger Games" involved the entire country and not just a handful of hot teenagers? Well, thanks to the brand Apple Trailers clip for the upcoming horror film "The Purge," we now know the answer to that burning question.

And just as you might imagine, it involves a lot of Ethan Hawke looking like he's about to crap his pants.

Here's the aggressively silly premise for "The Purge:" In the future, America will suspend all law for one night only each year, allowing people to rob, maim and kill at will in order to work out their frustrations. Personally, we prefer yoga class for that rather than murder, but hey, whatever works.

Anyway, Hawke and his wife (Lena Headey) are rich folks who spend each annual purge locked safely away inside their mansion with their emotionally conflicted children. Which works fine right up until one of those kids decides to bring a stranger into their house in order to save his life from a group of mask-wearing psychopaths. Now with their own home under siege, they not only have to fight for survival, they also have to face the most insidious enemy of all: Their own moral hypocrisy.

Wow. Heavy stuff, man.

"The Purge" is set to hit theaters on May 31. Check out the new trailer — and may the odds ever be in your favor.
