Universal’s “The Hunt” isn’t even out yet, but many are taking to Twitter to react to the film’s trailer, calling it “beyond sick” and “disturbing.”
“The Hunt,” which was initially going to be titled “Red State vs. Blue State,” is billed as a satire that follows wealthy thrill-seekers as they take a private jet to a five-star resort, where they embark on a “deeply rewarding” expedition that involves hunting down and killing “deplorables.”

“Universal is releasing a horrific movie about hunting down people called The Hunt. They pulled the ads but they have not stopped its release. Absolutely irresponsible movie and fosters hate and killing of people who don’t believe the same as the hunters. Hollywood be shamed,” a user wrote….
Someone else shared: “#TheHunt is the most disgusting and terrifying thing I have ever heard. You yell about gun control and then release a movie about shooting people who are against your views. Open up your eyes people. God help us all.”…
Another shared: “I just read a report on the movie “The Hunt” that comes out soon. this is why I can’t pick a side. A movie about rounding up a group of “deplorables” and HUNTING them is ok? Put all the gun laws on the books but we’re entertained by a movie about killing Trump supporters.”…
Universal Pictures told Fox News on Wednesday: “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.” [Universal, however, has confirmed late Thursday that they will move forward with the film’s release, despite its offensive and divisive content.]
“The Hunt” stars Betty Gilpin, Ike Barinholtz and Hillary Swank and is scheduled to be released on Sept. 27.
