After being pulled from release last summer, Blumhouse and Universal’s controversial The Hunt will now finally see the light of day this coming March, we’ve just learned today.
The Hunt is on for Friday, March 13! Check out a new trailer below, which smartly plays up the controversy and makes it clear that it’s not quite the movie many assumed it was.
Universal said in a statement last August, explaining why they pulled the film amid mass shootings and political controversy, “We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film.”
The film was originally going to open September 27, 2019.
Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don’t know they’ve been chosen… for a very specific purpose … The Hunt.
In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a group of Liberal elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt ordinary Americans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of The Hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin, “GLOW”), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (two-time Oscar® winner Hilary Swank) at the center of it all.
From Jason Blum, the producer of Get Out and The Purge series, and Damon Lindelof, creator of the HBO series “Watchmen” and co-creator of the TV series “Lost,” comes a timely and provocative new satirical thriller that has already ignited a national conversation. Now, it’s time to decide for yourself.
