“The Hunt” Teases the Ultimate Human Experience

A teaser trailer has just dropped for The Hunt, the new social experiment thriller from Jason Blum, producer of Get Out and The Purge.

The film, which has been hidden in a certain degree of secrecy, centers on a remote Manor House where a group of global elites gathers to hunt humans for sport.  But in much the way you’d expect, the plan goes a bit offtrack when one of the foreseen victims opts to fight back.

Interestingly enough, the trailer doesn’t reveal much in the way of plot.  Instead, it opts to show itself as a commercial for the exclusive “hunt.”  It’s an interesting choice that will likely confuse many; however, those who get the playful marketing strategy, there is much to be enjoyed.

The Hunt is headlined by Ike Barinholtz, Betty Gilpin, Emma Roberts, and two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank,.  Directed by Craig Zobel, it is set to hit theaters September 27.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
