NBC’s Universal Pictures was planning to release their upcoming controversial movie “The Hunt” on its scheduled date of September 27 despite facing momentous backlash over the film. A source from the studio informed that – “There are no plans as to not release the movie or rather any plans to move the release.” But as per the recent advances, Donald Trump has canceled the release of the film.
“The Hunt” was weaved with an ironic illustration on wealthy thrill-seekers. The huntsmen acquire a private jet to a five-star resort for embarking on a “deeply rewarding” expedition. The mission is to chase and kill designated humans.
The criticism faced by NBC Universal Pictures was that the movie portrayed privileged vacationers hunting “deplorables” for sport. This movie has caused annoyance. A couple of conservatives are of the opinion that it depicts everything from “political violence” to “sick murder fantasies about right-wingers.”
The team was aware of the widespread objections to the movie’s plot. In spite of the several counter attacks they were moving forward with the release and were very firm in not taking any significant action at this time. But the political move resulted otherwise.
Mass shootings in several places inspired Universal to stop advertising for this movie earlier. And recently, Universal Studios announced that it is completely canceling the movie’s release.
It was reported by The Hollywood Reporter that this film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse is a typical violent and R-rated film. A dozen of MAGA types are trailed here who wake up in a clearing and end up realizing that they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals. According to the Hollywood trade publication the characters in the film refer to the victims as “deplorables”. This is exactly what Hillary Clinton was infamously dubbing Trump supporters during the 2016 election.
