Universal Pictures has announced a new release date for their controversial film The Hunt. The Hunt was initially planned to release last year on September 27th, but after two mass shootings that took place in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio many felt the movie was not appropriate for release. The film centers around twelve strangers who wake up and realize they are being hunted. While the controversial was thought to have been put on hold indefinitely, Universal will now release The Hunt on March 13, 2020. Be sure to check out The Hunt official trailer and poster below!

The Hunt Movie Synopsis:
The most talked about movie of the year is the one nobody has seen … yet. 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 ordinary Americans 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.
From Jason Blum, the producer of Get Out and The Purge series, and Damon Lindelof, creator of the HBO series Watchmen and co-creator of the TV series Lost, comes a timely and provocative new satirical thriller that has already ignited a national conversation. Now, it’s time to decide for yourself.
The Hunt is written by Lindelof and his fellow Watchmen collaborator Nick Cuse and is directed by Craig Zobel (Z for Zachariah, The Leftovers). Blum produces for his Blumhouse Productions alongside Lindelof. The film is executive produced by Zobel, Cuse and Steven R. Molen.
