Universal Cancels Plans to Release 'The Hunt' After Mass Shootings

This had absolutely crap to do with the mass shootings like Universal is saying. This was the political back lash from putting out such a movie in these times. I am glad Universal made this decision. I am even more glad they did it on their own volition since I do not condone censorship.

It's a terrible premise for a movie anyway, no matter which side does the kidnapping. We don't need a movie to further divide people politically.

It would be nice if we actually got a movie that brought people together and focused on what we have in common for a change.

I posted this in the first "The Hunt" melt thread and nobody seemed to notice it.

They halted production immediately after the news of the mass shootings, not because some Washington Examiner article went nuts, but you're welcome to believe whatever.

Another movie I wasn't going to watch is gone, and hopefully the whiners are now appeased, it's a win/win

Too bad, it sounded like much needed comedy relief....
Well actually if you watched the trailers like i did, it appeared it was a bunch of left wing elitists, hunting deplorable Trump supporters from red states, and one of the deplorable kills all the leftists.
The point is this. There is no need for that type of "entertainment" in today's political arena. I also believe that it was up to Universal to make that decision. I think they made a good decision.

just watched this trailer. where are you getting that? nowhere does it say the hunted are trump supporters, but instead just regular folk. I know a bunch of regular folk who aren't trump supporters, I am a regular folk who's definitely not a trump supporter

in fact the lead character (who's being hunted) seems waaaaaaay too smart to be a trump supporter

I'm glad to hear this, but am suspicious. It's hard to see after the money spent, they won't release it. I think they will release it after the current hysteria dies down.
It's release will be for $ and also obviously political, so look for a Sept. 2020 release date.

Most of the trailers have been pulled. So you are just going to have to trust sources

“The Hunt” is billed as a dark satire about a group of privileged vacationers hunting "deplorables" for sport and is set to open September 27.

Also, as often the case, when Trump said they were being racist (fact check me on that?) in a tweet for releasing the movie, he was wrong. Like millions of Americans in this day of victimization he totally has no idea the difference between racism and bigotry. The movie was bigoted, not racist.

in the meantime I read the article in the OP, and it did say this

"Playing on political divides in the Trump era, "The Hunt" follows 12 conservatives who discover they have been kidnapped and brought to The Manor, a hunting ground where liberal billionaires pay top dollar to hunt them for sport."

conservatives aren't "depolrables" or trump supporters, but I digress

so the libs are the bad guys? and y'all all mad about that?

I'm glad the film was pulled, hunting people with guns for sport is not something that needs to be broadcast in a time where mass shootings happen every week, especially when one of the murderers was basically hunting immigrants.
