Universal Pictures announced this week that it has decided to release “The Hunt,” a movie about liberal elites hunting “deplorables,” after all despite plans last fall to scrap the movie altogether.
“The most talked about movie of the year is one nobody’s seen yet. #TheHuntMovie opens in theaters Friday the 13th of March. #DecideForYourself,” Universal Pictures tweeted.

As CNSNews.com previously reported, according to the Hollywood Reporter, one character asks early in the screenplay, “Did anyone see what our ratf*cker-in-chief just did?” Another character responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”
As CNSNews.com previously reported, the R-rated satire was pulled in the wake of recent mass shootings:
“While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film. We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film,” it said in a statement on the film’s website.
