The film follows twelve strangers called « deplorables » and Trump supporters, who mysteriously wake up in a clearing.[3] They don't know where they are, or how they got there. They discover that they've been chosen to be hunted in a game devised by a group of rich leftist elites.[4] The hunters gather in a remote facility called the Manor House but their sport gets derailed when one of the hunted, Crystal (Gilpin), fights back and starts killing them one by one.[5]

Ads Pulled For 'The Hunt' In Wake Of Mass Shootings

Post by Riddick » 08-08-2019 04:05 PM

"Did anyone see what our ratf*cker-in-chief just did?" one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: "At least The Hunt's coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables."

In the aftermath of mass shootings within days of one another that shocked and traumatized the nation, Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire. The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.

Over the Aug. 3 weekend, ESPN pulled an ad for the film that it had previously cleared, while AMC ran the spot during the season premiere of its drama The Preacher. It's unclear whether the ads were identical, but the one yanked by ESPN opened with a sound resembling an emergency broadcast signal. A rep for ESPN parent Disney declined to comment on the move, but an ESPN source says no spots for the film will appear on the network in the coming weeks.

The Hunt stars Betty Gilpin from GLOW and Hilary Swank, representing opposite sides of the political divide. It features guns blazing along with other ultra-violent killings as the elites pick off their prey. The script from Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse reviewed by The Hollywood Reporter revolves around third-rail political themes. (Original title: Red State Vs. Blue State.)

A studio source says that even before the recent attacks, which left 34 dead in El Paso, Texas; Dayton, Ohio; and Gilroy, California, some reshoots were done based on a recent rough cut. Universal and Blumhouse declined to comment.

While one high-level Universal source says the studio has pulled some ads that are beginning to air and appear online "for content and placement," others say the matter is still under discussion internally. A major ad blitz on television and the web had been planned for the beginning of September, says one insider. A trailer is already online.

Given the fraught political climate — particularly in the wake of the attack in El Paso, which was motivated by anti-immigrant bigotry — studio sources say Universal is evaluating its plans in what one called "a fluid situation."

A high-level insider says top executives want to stand by Blum, one of the studio's most prolific and successful producers, as well as filmmaker Craig Zobel, and see the project as a satire addressing an issue of great social importance. But this person says plans could change "if people think we're being exploitative rather than opinionated."

This is not the first time a studio has been faced with real-life events that rendered a film release more complicated. Following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, for example, Warner Bros. moved back the Arnold Schwarzenegger starrer Collateral Damage and abandoned a trailer that featured a bomb attack in the U.S. The 2017 Death Wish remake was delayed several months in response to a mass shooting in Las Vegas. And Oliver Stone's 1994 satire Natural Born Killers was criticized for inspiring copycat killings.

Funny, while it still mentions "deplorables" being hunted? The Wikipedia page has been edited to remove references to Trump supporters & rich leftist elites.

Meanwhile, insofar the studio has been silent concerning inquiries, Snopes says without confirmation the film features "a liberal-conservative enmity between the characters", they are rating the claim 'Unproven,' until and unless such corroborating evidence becomes available.

Stay tuned.

They where "editing" "Wikipedia" when I was trying get a capture on it. I think it is interesting that there is Not one thing they can change in a redeeming way.(not that they care to). They have become the True, Destroyers of everthing. And their followers will gladly destroy themselves and others, justifing their actions for them. Sure don't want their Karma! Hell is already full!

Odd , isn't it, that those who scream the most for "Diversity", want literally to murder those that have different mind sets than those ,they , have dictated(Dictator) ? Especially those, that love their country and enjoy the freedoms we do have. The " Criminally Insane" seem to be running the Earth, it's not just in this country. Kind of like being Trapped in a "Freddy Krueger" Movie. :|

DID YOU KNOW "Democrat" comes in the dictionary right after "Delusional" & just above "Demonic"? Not really. But these days it might as well do!

Studio Scraps 'The Hunt' Release Amid Uproar

Post by Riddick » 08-11-2019 12:34 AM

"While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film," the studio said in Saturday's statement. The film had been set to hit theaters on Sept. 27.

The Saturday announcement came a day after President Donald Trump took aim at the film — though he didn't name its title — and Hollywood, saying on Twitter, "Liberal Hollywood is Racist at the highest level, and with great Anger and Hate! They like to call themselves “Elite,” but they are not Elite. In fact, it is often the people that they so strongly oppose that are actually the Elite. The movie coming out is made in order to inflame and cause chaos. They create their own violence, and then try to blame others. They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our Country!"

Even before Trump weighed in, the movie sparked an outcry on social media amid the public anger over gun violence and networks entered into the conversation when ESPN pulled an ad for the film that it had previously cleared. Subsequently, Universal pulled all spots.
