Official Trailer for Blumhouse’s The Hunt Shows the Hunters Becoming the Hunted
It’s just your ordinary story of rich people wanting to hunt humans for sport, but with a revenge twist!
By Chris Morse
This September brings a new film from Blumhouse Productions, the studio behind Get Out and The Purge franchise, with a twisted new take on the people-hunting subgenre (is that a thing?). The newly-released official trailer introduces The Hunt, following twelve strangers who wake up in a clearing not knowing where they are or how they got there.
It’s like The Hunger Games meets The Purge, with a bit of a revenge twist as a cherry on top. The trailer seems to give a lot away, but it’s worth checking out anyway if this film is not yet on your radar. Give it a watch above and read on for more details.
The Hunt uncovers the truth behind a dark internet conspiracy theory about a group of elites who gather at a remote manor to hunt humans for sport. Their plans are quickly derailed by one of the hunted, Crystal, who turns the tables and begins picking them off on her way to find the mysterious woman at the center of it all.
Starring is Betty Gilpin (GLOW), Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby, Boys Don't Cry). Ike Barinholtz (Suicide Squad), and Emma Roberts (American Horror Story). The film is directed by Craig Zobel and co-written by Nick Cuse and Damon Lindelof, all of whom are connected to The Leftovers television series. It will hit theaters on September 27th.
