DL: The Hunt Theatrical Release Pulled By Universal    Gleemonex on Aug 10, 10:17

saving it for Unversal+ {nm}   professor zovek on Aug 10, 10:19

Likely. They didnt rule out releasing it at some time in the future, just now was not the time.2020 will be election year so still spicy the {nm}   notfabio on Aug 10, 10:39

I guess Universal will dump the film, like what they did with "Happiness" and "House of 1000 Corpses" {nm}   Peterlee on Aug 10, 10:53

Trump successfully diverts attention from guns to films. It will have long-term effect on Hollywood. {nm}   Peterlee on Aug 10, 11:02

How or why would it affect Hollywood? Thank you. {nm}   SenJohnBlutarsky on Aug 10, 12:15

Not much interest to begin with {nm}   budice on Aug 10, 11:03

The event will affect the releases of more violence films (not just "The Hunt") {nm}   Peterlee on Aug 10, 11:10

I believe you overestimate the respect for Trump and his fans among educated, informed, decent Americans    SenJohnBlutarsky on Aug 10, 12:20

I'm embarrassed for them. And this was a big change from their initial internal stance. {nm}   RupertPupkin on Aug 10, 12:33

Comcast might have had a hand in the abrupt change presuming they don't want extra DOJ interest in them for future M&A activity   notfabio on Aug 10, 15:20

There's nothing about that problem that isn't likely to be solved in 18 months {nm}   SenJohnBlutarsky on Aug 11, 16:26

I’m surprised a film this on-the-nose was even greenlit in this political climate. And I thought what happened to Interview was horrible.   HurricaneKid on Aug 10, 12:34

+1...Mads makes anything awesome. {nm}   Pepe_Nolan on Aug 10, 12:43

they've made like four Purges and a TV show {nm}   professor zovek on Aug 10, 12:45

Exactly what I was thinking. I don't see much difference between this one and the Purges. {nm}   tatoufan on Aug 10, 13:04

The right is using THE HUNT to distract from the extreme gun violence of late. That's the difference. {nm}   Moviesnob on Aug 10, 13:06

Yep, no fake killing on the big screens for now. Blame Hollywood, blame rap music, blame video games....Wonder if the trend will continue. {nm}   tatoufan on Aug 10, 13:31

I'm likely as far right as exists in this space. Universal would've had my $20 opening thurs or fri.   Pepe_Nolan on Aug 10, 13:43

Never caught a Purge, no interest. I know there’s an alt-future totalitarianism slant, but nothing as obvious as “deplorables” vs “elites” {nm}   HurricaneKid on Aug 10, 13:28

I think this is incorrect. For example, PURG4 (spoils)   RogerMore on Aug 10, 16:24

Still a lot less blatent than the reported elements of The Hunt’s script. I really am stunned this script was given the go ahead.   HurricaneKid on Aug 10, 16:52

As pointed out on the boards, PURG4 was marketed with a MAGA hat. {nm}   RogerMore on Aug 10, 17:11

So I guess that marketing is equivalent to scripting your entire movie entirely around today’s heated political divide. {nm}   HurricaneKid on Aug 10, 17:42

As PURG4 was scripted? {nm}   RogerMore on Aug 10, 17:43

PURG4 was about hunting “deplorables” because “because they expressed anti-choice positions or used the N-word on Twitter”? (from H.R.) {nm}   HurricaneKid on Aug 10, 17:56

No, it had a plot about the killing of poor people organized by politicians who didn’t want to spend money on social programs.   RogerMore on Aug 10, 18:52

I wouldn’t greenlight this, not because it’s “pretty offensive” (I love offensive content)...   HurricaneKid on Aug 10, 19:29

Blumhouse has a first look deal with Universal so stating other studios saw this coming and passing on the script is untrue.    Moviesnob on Aug 10, 19:42

Project didn’t originate at Blum. LOST showrunners wrote it, then Blum acquired it. After others passed on it (per HR) {nm}   HurricaneKid on Aug 10, 19:57

By “pretty offensive” I don’t mean “personally offensive”, but that “people are bound to be offended” i.e. it will lead to controversy. {nm}   RogerMore on Aug 10, 19:52

you should watch one. Its entirely obvious as its been in other hunting human narratives. They are all class critiques   Moviesnob on Aug 10, 19:38
