Trailers for The Hunt, the most violent Blumhouse stire that became the defeat of the right wing opposition last summer before rejoining the new sales campaign in February, you called the film "The most talked about movie of the year is one that no one has seen … yet."
That was a shameful way to put a happy person back when new movies seemed to be in place. However The Hunt, directed by Craig Zobel, will arrive in theaters after months of controversy over an unprecedented global health crisis: the day before its official release, the upcoming big blockbusters like Mulan, F9, and Full Second Floor Area were postponed instead of a coronavirus polio. The Hunt it's not just the most talked about movie no one has ever seen; For some, it might be the last movie they've seen in a while.
But maybe that's a good way to put the theater experience, or for a short period of time. Initially impressed with the design of the building – The Most Dangerous Game – The Hunt glee down “both sides” at a time when even the “two-sided” mentality is in politics.
"The purpose of the movie was to try to do something that reminds us of all that time," Zobel, who previously directed Compatibility
Written by Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse, The Hunt It happens in America where wealthy hunters of freedom are free to call the unnamed president a "servant follower" and one of the hunter-gatherers rejoices in the hope of appearing Hannity if he makes it live (destroyer: it doesn't). However The Hunt always shatters that foundation, drawing MAGA types as heroes of the week ready to attack in the real world, and top people like best-of-breed signers and kind of Twitter-talk type. While waiting when there is a crisis in the killing area, for example, one of the freelancers is excited to find Ava DuVernay liking one of her Instagram posts. "Most of the movie was me – parts of this movie that I found to be very funny while I was making fun of them," Zobel said. "I think Ava DuVernay is an amazing filmmaker, but she doesn't need me to think that. She doesn't need my compliments, she does well otherwise. I think that was in my mind a joke. What would these people enjoy meeting?"
Crystal only, played by Glow star Betty Gilpin who has done well as advertised, stands in a low voice, left to take care of herself as the world around her screams. The film plays a bit like his politics: he is a South American whose secret of his devotion to one side of the road or the other has never been so clearly defined.
”Actors always try to play their partners and listen to them a lot. The joke was that these scenes worked better if they didn't get too much attention, ”Zobel said. “Because that was the adjective we were doing, that there was a lack of empathy right now but that's what we need. I feel at the end of the movie, as a viewer myself, I feel lifted by it or with some hope. I was trying to do something amazing, tricky. ”
Probably not, but it's hard not to be anything but skeptical when the first answer helps The Hunt moved so far from control. Universal kicked off its marketing campaign for the film last summer after a mass shooting left dozens dead. It was not long after that, as Fox News received details of the allegations about the film it was revealed by A Hollywood reporter, President Donald Trump's twitter about The Hunt. “Liberal Hollywood is so racist, so angry and hateful! They like to call themselves & # 39; Elite, & # 39; but not Elite. In fact, it is often the most controversial Elite people, ”Trump said sent
It wasn't long before the movie itself was released from the program. Irich, Of course, that The Hunt it's about what happens when people see the worst and don't care to investigate whether they are right or not.
"I really hope people who watch the movie will find it. I hope that when you watch the movie you will find that they were making a strange, romp movie," Zobel said when asked if it was possible to make a satirical film. are people making assumptions about the aims of things they don't know about yet? That they have not seen him. I hope that people who watch the movie will understand our POV. That is another question, the question of whether people who have seen the movie will do anything for our POV thinking is actually a movie story. "
Indeed, it is distorted in The Hunt including the origin of its conspiracy theories and how bad faith can get in the worst possible action. "I would interrupt the audio mixer and be like, & # 39; Oh, my God, I don't believe you have a line in the business, & # 39;" says Zobel about working on the film while the debate revolves around it The Hunt revealed. “People will think we put that in a movie later. I've always said I want to make a movie that feels contemporary. We were so present that we were involved in something we were trying to identify. ”
The Hunt it's now out in theaters.
