Recent mass shootings have producers at Universal Pictures revising their strategy for an upcoming thriller release. The biggest dilemma is rationalizing how they can let “The Hunt” come out anyway, so they don’t flush $18 million down the toilet.
They really don’t see anything wrong with their movie, after all, it is a “satire” they insist. The picture “is meant to show what a stupid, crazy world we live in,” one studio executive notes. “It might even be more powerful now.”
“Did anyone see what our ratf**ker-in-chief just did?” One left-leaning character in the gore soaked disgrace asks. A group of elite liberals have a very progressive way of venting their frustration. “At least the hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”
With a release date set for September 27, the ads are just starting to hit the airwaves. At least they were supposed to. With President Trump’s “rhetoric” being blamed as the single cause for every recent mass shooting, “promoting violence” has become politically incorrect.
This particular Hollywood propaganda flick goes especially over the top, but will probably be released anyway. That is, if the producers can get anyone to run the ads.
Over the weekend of August 3, ESPN pulled the ad, but AMC went ahead and ran theirs. It isn’t clear if both were the same. Disney, the parent company for ESPN vows that “no spots for the film will appear on the network in the coming weeks.”
The violent film produced by Jason Blum “follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.” When the script for the movie — originally called Red State Vs. Blue State — first came out in May of 2018, it “made some executives at Universal skittish.” So, they “fast-tracked” it and did it on an $18 million shoestring. Unfortunately, a spate of mass shootings got in the way of the release at the last minute. If the track was just a little bit faster, it would be out already.
According to the script, “the red-state characters” wear “trucker hats and cowboy shirts, with one bragging about owning seven guns because it’s his constitutional right.”
The blue-state characters are good with guns too, “they picked their targets because they expressed anti-choice positions or used the N-word on Twitter.”
One “high-level source” says the studio “has pulled some ads that are beginning to air and appear online,” looking at “content and placement.” but others at the studio insist that “the matter is still under discussion internally.”

One called it “a fluid situation.” They had similar dilemmas in the past and managed to get the film out anyway. They had to move the release date for “collateral Damage” after 9/11, and the 2017 version of Death Wish “was delayed several months in response to a mass shooting in Las Vegas.”
If this movie ever hits the screen, even after a delay, it will prove that liberals are more than willing to promote violence as long as it’s against supporters of President Donald Trump.
How do progressives expect anyone to take them seriously, when they tell President Trump to tone down his nationalistic rhetoric, then promote a movie like this. You can’t have it both ways.
