Hunt, The (2020)

Unread post by Krappy » 10 months ago

AKA Red State vs. Blue State

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 elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt humans 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.

More details have emerged about why the film’s release was scrapped, which was reportedly also due to poor test screenings and death threats made towards the filmmakers. It appears that the studio was hesitant to even release the film and the social media outcry after the shootings essentially solidified the movie’s fate. While there’s no longer a domestic release, international companies are reportedly still interested in releasing it, so it will ultimately see some sort of release this year. (8/15/19)
The film originally had a September 27th 2019 theatrical release, but the studio pulled it from release after outcry on social media saying that the film’s release was in bad taste due to the recent mass shootings in the US. Initially the studio removed all marketing for the movie, but eventually decided to pull the release all together. At the moment there’s no new date set, but the studio has said they still plan to eventually release the movie. (8/12/19)
Directed by Craig Zobel (Z for Zachariah, The Leftovers).
Written by Damon Lindelof and his fellow The Leftovers’ collaborator Nick Cuse.
Described as a “mysterious social thriller.”
Universal Pictures has cancelled the September release of The Hunt, saying that: “now is not the right time to release this film” in the wake of deadly attacks in California, Texas and Ohio.
The Hunt finally got a March 13th (Friday the 13th) theatrical release.
Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man and Craig Zobel’s The Hunt, both Blumhouse productions, will both be released onto VOD outlets this Friday, March 20th, 2020.

With The Hunt finally hitting theaters nationwide on March 13th, Perri Nemiroff got the chance to chat with director Craig Zobel and writer Nick Cuse about a whole bunch of behind-the-scenes details. Check out this video interview to hear the pair discuss the evolution of the character names, whether or not they came up with the specifics on exactly how Amelia and her cohorts put together “The Hunt,” the one time they thought they were pushing the gore a little too far, and more.




Spoiler Warning! This interview contains one major plot spoiler for The Hunt. Please be aware, there is a spoiler alert graphic in the video when that plot is discussed.

With The Hunt set to hit theaters on March 13th, Perri Nemiroff got the chance to chat with producer Jason Blum and one of the stars of the movie, Ike Barinholtz. Blum talks about how he defines a “Blumhouse movie,” Barinholtz shares his thoughts on his character’s name in The Hunt, and they both weigh in on whether or not Blumhouse should make a Halloween Horror Nights movie. Hear all about that and so much more in this video interview!





Spoiler Warning! This interview is loaded with plot spoilers for The Hunt. Do not watch this video until you’ve seen the film.

If you made it passed that spoiler warning, you’ve seen The Hunt and you know that Betty Gilpin is downright phenomenal in it. Not only does she make for a kick-ass lead in the controversial horror-comedy, but the role of Crystal also gives her an abundance of opportunities to show off what makes her an unparalleled star. During my interview with Gilpin and writer Damon Lindelof, I just had to jump feet first into spoiler territory to talk about all of Gilpin’s unforgettable creative choices and the bold scenario that Lindelof brought to screen with co-writer Nick Cuse.

Give this video interview a watch to hear all about Gilpin’s scene with Steve Mokate in the bunker and to find out whether or not the non-verbal beats of their conversation were scripted. Gilpin also weighed in on what she thinks Crystal might do after the events of the film and Lindelof spoke about what it’s like casting an in-demand actor like Emma Roberts as a character who gets killed off at the very beginning of the movie.
