Controversial Film The Hunt Released In The USA On 13 March

The controversial film, in which a gang of "elites" hunt down and murder "deplorables" was originally slated for release a year ago before a number of tragic incidents in Ohio, Texas, and California that saw more than 30 people killed led those behind the film to put a pin in proceedings.

At one point in "The Hunt" screenplay, according to The Hollywood Reporter, a character says, "Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables".

The Hunt is expected to hit theaters on March 13, 2020. But the studio suspended the marketing campaign in wake of mass shootings in Texas, Ohio and California and ultimately pulled the movie from its slate. 11, 2020, unveiled a trailer announcing "The Hunt" will be released March 13, roughly six months after it was supposed to have been released. "They like to call themselves 'Elite, ' but they are not Elite", Trump tweeted back on August 9. "In fact, it is often the people that they so strongly oppose that are actually the Elite", he added on Twitter. Ads for the film were pulled in the wake of two mass shootings in Texas and OH, and President Trump even went after it on Twitter, writing that it was "made in order to inflame and cause chaos". "They create their own violence, and then try to blame others".

The trailer includes the line, "The most talked about movie of the year is one nobody's seen yet".

"While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for 'The Hunt, ' after thoughtful consideration, the studio has chose to cancel our plans to release the film", Universal said in a statement posted on the film's website, according to The New York Times. "They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our Country!"

"This is not a unsafe movie", the film's co-writer Damon Lindelof (HBO's Watchmen) told Variety.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, producer Jason Blum said that "none of us were interested in taking sides with this movie", while co-writer Damon Lindelof described the film as having been "misunderstood" past year.

"None of us were interested in taking sides with this movie". It stars Betty Gilpin, Ike Barinholtz, Emma Roberts, and Hilary Swank.

"This is not a unsafe movie", Lindelof told Variety in a new interview published Tuesday.
