Studio says it will cancel release of 'The Hunt' after backlash
The Hill, Aug 10, 2019

Universal Pictures says it's canceling the release of "The Hunt," after the violent film fell prey to intense criticism from conservatives and President Trump for the politically charged violence depicted in it.

"While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for 'The Hunt,' after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film," a Universal Pictures spokesperson told The Hill in a statement.

"We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film."

Nice call.

Now, people will flock to see it when it is released. @The Ghost

I'm sure this is a Leftist slanted hit job on Trump and his supporters.
The reality is that Deplorables are the backbone of America.
They would wipe the floor with Leftist snowflakes.
But you will never hear this from Hollywood. They are all Communist all the time.
You know the funniest part of this. Joseph McCarthy was right.
He said that Communists were taking over Hollywood.
And here it is. Who can say he was wrong?
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

It doesn't help when you have tens of millions of people supporting them by watching their crap.

Certainly, leftists control Hollyweird.
It's interesting....I like to watch old movies and read the bios of the stars from 50-70 years ago. From what I've read, it seems like the majority of stars, male and female, were strong Republicans.
I'm sure the heads of the studio were a lot more conservative too.
What happened?

What happened?

The McCarthy witch hunt targeting the communists might have been the start?  Add to that the fact the majority of today's actors are artsy fartsy liberal braindead Amrican hating d-bags and communists.

Eugine might have been two or three generations too early with his hearings on Unamerican activity.

You mean Joe McCarthy.  Eugene McCarthy was a liberal Democrat senator from Minnesota.

BFD!   So, they're not going to release it in theaters?

Nobody goes to theaters.  It will be on Netflix or Showtime.  Definitely Cinemax.

Contrary to popular belief, The House Committee on Un-American Activities, which investigated the commies in Hollyweird, was not run by Senator McCarthy.
