The Binge Trailer: A Teen Comedy Take Off on The Purge


The Purge takes place in a future America where crime is legalized once a year for 24 hours, but now imagine a world where all drugs and alcohol are outlawed except for one day a year where everyone is allowed to go wild. That is the premise of The Binge, an upcoming Hulu original comedy directed by Jeremy Garelick (The Wedding Ringer) and written by Jordan VanDina (SuperMansion). For the most part, this looks like just another R-rated party comedy and doesn’t appear to be a full-blown parody of the Blumhouse movies. It is possible that the high concept is being used primarily as a marketing gimmick, but that being said, there is still some potential here. The Binge stars Skyler Gisondo (Santa Clarita Diet, Booksmart), Dexter Darden (The Maze Runner films), Eduardo Franco (Booksmart) and Vince Vaughn and it hits Hulu on Aug. 28th. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
