Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are — or how they got there. In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, ruthless elitists gather at a remote location to hunt humans for sport. But their master plan is about to be derailed when one of the hunted, Crystal, turns the tables on her pursuers.
Because multiple mass shootings made the news in the past year, people were upset about the idea of a movie about people hunting people.
The movie ironically deals with misinformation in the media in a typical human hunt movie plot. The controversy is working to promote the film in another divisive election year.
Here’s some b-roll footage from the set, along with a bit of behind-the-scenes coverage.
Writer and producer Damien Lindelof discusses making The Hunt.
Ike Barinholtz talks playing Staten Island.
Producer Jason Blum discusses what it took to make The Hunt.
Wayne Duvall explains his experience playing Don.
Betty Gilpin Talks about playing Crystal in The Hunt.
Glen Howerton discusses what it was like playing Richard in The Hunt.
Justin Hartley speaks on playing Big Game Shane.
It looks like this movie will have a great mix of action, drama, suspense, and even some dark humor. Whether or not it excites moviegoers next Friday, March 13, 2020, when it finally releases after the delays.
