Universal Pauses Marketing On ‘The Hunt’ After Mass Shootings

Quote:
Universal is putting the brakes on the marketing for their Blumhouse release The Hunt in the wake of recent mass shootings which have taken the lives of 34 people in El Paso, Texas; Dayton, Ohio; and Gilroy, California.

“Out of sensitivity to the attention on the country’s recent shooting tragedies, Universal Pictures and the filmmakers of The Hunt have temporarily paused its marketing campaign and are reviewing materials as we move forward,” said a studio rep in a statement.

The pic’s release date will remain unchanged for the Sept. 27 thriller which follows 12 red-state strangers who wake up in a clearing and realize that they’re being hunted by liberals. Betty Gilpin and Oscar winner Hilary Swank play women on opposite sides of the political spectrum, conservative and liberal, who are targeting each other.

Deadline hears that there will not be any TV or digital spots for The Hunt, nor will there be any outdoor advertisements. Last weekend, ESPN yanked an ad for the pic that it had previously approved. However, AMC aired a spot for the pic during its season premiere of The Preacher.

The first thing I thought about when I read your post was it sounds like The Purge, and I see it's made by the same people as The Purge.

They missed a trick in this trailer though. Elitist, SJW "liberals" are among the most insufferable people on the planet. If they have these hunters embody that turned up to eleven and put some of that in their trailer, that would be a great hook, would be so satisfying to see such villains go down.

How is this acceptable? Hollywood has proven itself to be the intolerant one.

Selectively kindly MAGA types. MAGA is not kind to everyone.

Well, uber-rich liberals who say they have the right to since they "pay for everything so the country belongs to (them)".

When there is a group of people who feel that they are more evolved than others they refer to as deplorables, that sort of thing could happen I suppose. A cleansing operation. A final solution.

Ouch. My comments got removed from this topic.

I only mentioned the premise of the movie.

On Fox news they were saying, "This is a dangerous time for TRUMP supporters".

That Clinton's "irredeemable deplorables" is call for violence on Trump supporters.

Must have been a pretty rough topic for the film.

Do we really need more pictures like this? I think not. It sounds like the sort of ghastly fantasia I scribbled in copybooks while I was fifteen.

...So what Hillary said three years ago is a call for violence on Trump supporters, but nothing Trump said encouraged any violence by rightie maniac DJT supporters. Uh hub :mrgreen: :roll: .

[Sarcasm] Only unbiased news on Fox. :)

Also, the movie depicts "deplorables" being targeted.

Totally agree! It's also harmful for the movement as a whole. Because if there is even one left-wing attack, lots of people will equate it to 10 right-wing attacks.

i have the nasty feeling that the PTB are just waiting for the violence to reach a certain level, left/right, black/white, religious/non-religious, mass shootings et al, to declare a new version of "rex 84" * and declare martial law. IMHO things are being manipulated, our collective puppet strings are being pulled to make us fight each other, to this end.
