Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 08, 2019

NBC Universal still plans to release the controversial movie "The Hunt" as scheduled on September 27 despite significant backlash over the film that depicts privileged vacationers hunting "deplorables" for sport. "The Hunt" is billed as a satirical take on wealthy thrill-seekers taking a private jet to a five-star resort where they embark on a "deeply rewarding" expedition that involves hunting down and killing designated humans. According to the Hollywood trade publication, characters in the film refer to the victims as "deplorables," which is what Hillary Clinton infamously dubbed Trump supporters during the 2016 election. The report also noted that a character asks, "Did anyone see what our ratf--ker-in-chief just did?"

Apparently these movies are only shown in America, nowhere else in the modern world...

All the more reason that guns should be widely available in America!

Universal stops marketing The Hunt after most recent deadly mass shootings
arstechnica.com

...Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Universal Pictures has temporarily ceased its marketing campaign for its upcoming satirical thriller, The Hunt, in the wake of three recent US mass shootings that claimed the lives of more than 30 people. The film stars GLOW's Betty Gilpin and Oscar winner Hilary Swank as two women from opposite ends of the political spectrum hunting each other -- essentially a modern update of the classic short story, "The Most Dangerous Game."

"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," a representative for the studio told Deadline.

Delays like this have become something of a standard operating procedure for Hollywood over the last 20+ years as the industry grapples with how to navigate the dark reality of gun violence in America. ...

Uh yeah there's no reputable source that has any evidence the hunt is about partisan politics.

Love seeing movies where they show America at it's best.

I hope they don't censor any bits... but then I always get to watch the full version.

From the sources I've read there certainly is some of that thrown in.

Here's the thing about this, some right-leaning outlets are calling this film a left-wing wet dream that caricatures some "deplorables."

While that may or may not be true, the true monsters in this movie are the hunters and if this truly is a partisan film which side comes out looking worse?

Don't be so fragile, get tough.

If America's shores were ever to be invaded, we're gonna need you to hurl yourself, sacrificially by the way, at the enemy.

Media doesn't do that - you have to already be insane. Does reading comic books make you kill?

Honestly. And it has very strong level and we didn't see that? But who can if you're one of the silent ones.

Hey Bill of Rights. Slavery rules!
