‘The Hunt’ is a long-awaited American thriller movie directed by Craig Zobel, and starring the likes of Betty Gilpin, Ike Barinholtz, Emma Roberts, and two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank. A commentary on gun violence in the US, and the political divide between the American left and the American right, the film was initially slated for release on September 27, 2019.
However, following the horrific mass shootings at Dayton and El Paso in August 2019, which claimed over 30 lives, the film’s release was postponed. Naturally, you might be wondering where you can see the film, outside of theaters. We have got you covered, as we also tell you a bit about this movie.
What is The Hunt about?
‘The Hunt’ is loosely based on a short story called ‘The Most Dangerous Game’, written by celebrated American author and journalist Richard Connell, and first published in 1924.
The movie starts with 12 strangers waking up in a clearing, with no idea where they are, or how they got there. Before the 12 unfortunate strangers can come to terms with their mysterious situation, they realize to their horror that they are in a game, being hunted by a group of elites. However, the game doesn’t go as planned as one of the hunted, Crystal (played by Betty Gilpin), fights back and decides to become the hunter, killing off the elites one at a time.
