The Hunt Trailer

"So it's true - we're being hunted." Universal has finally debuted the first full trailer for the new "The Most Dangerous Game"-inspired thriller The Hunt, the latest by clever filmmaker Craig Zobel (of Compliance, Z for Zachariah). This project has been kept secret for a while, even while in production, but now they've revealed what it's about. There's a manor where "elites" go to hunt other humans for sport. However, this time, one of the 12 people being hunted knows the game better than the hunters, and starts to fight back. Betty Gilpin stars as Crystal, with an ensemble cast including Ike Barinholtz, Emma Roberts, Justin Hartley, Glenn Howerton, Amy Madigan, Macon Blair, Steve Coulter, Ethan Suplee, and Hilary Swank. This looks way more humorous, and packed with way more social commentary, than expected but it still looks awesome. Can't wait to watch Gilpin get some sweet, sweet brutal revenge on these rich assholes.

Here's the first full-length trailer for Craig Zobel's The Hunt, direct from YouTube (still available for now):

Craig Zobel's The Hunt Poster

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 globalist elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt humans for sport. But their master plan is about to be derailed because one of the hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin), 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 (Hilary Swank) at the center of it all. The Hunt is directed by American filmmaker Craig Zobel, director of the films Surfacing, Great World of Sound, Compliance, and Z for Zachariah previously. The screenplay is written by Nick Cuse and Damon Lindelof. Produced by Jason Blum, of Blumhouse, along with Damon Lindelof. Universal will release Zobel's The Hunt in theaters everywhere on September 27th this fall. Visit the official website. Who's in?

"The Most Dangerous Game", "The Naked Prey", "Surviving the Game" and now "The Hunt". I guess the political climate deems it as the perfect time to remake this story again. 1% vs. the middle class/low class: A tale as old as time and once again being retold for the 1,000,000th time.

That what most movies do for some time. It's about how it's done, and less about what it says. Films can hardly say anything new for some time now ...

Sad but true, but DAMMIT, there's got to be SOME originality out there that can be harnessed for film! (aside from comics)

I don't think that films can be any more important because of originality. Yes, there is probably some space for that too, but less and less so. And, besides, some films can be original, but they can be done bad too. So, it's not sad, it's whether they are done good or not. I think people need to change their perspective about that. And yes, I welcome the commentary that comes with it.

Fair point.

Yeah, I'm ok with social commentary. And action looks ok. Besides, I liked Compliance a lot. So, sure, I'm definitely in ...
