Universal Pictures has announced that The Hunt will be released on March 13 after the film had its original September theatrical release canceled. The new release date was announced yesterday alongside a new trailer that briefly touches on the controversy that was surrounding the film. The Hunt follows a group of wealthy elites, lead by Hilary Swank, who gather a group of less prosperous "deplorables" to hunt for sport until Betty Gilpin turns things around and fights back. Emma Roberts, Ike Barinholtz, Justin Hartley and Ethan Suplee also star in the film from director Craig Zobel. Universal originally canceled the September release date following a string of mass shootings. The film was then heavily criticized by the media and President Donald Trump for seemingly pitting two political sides against each other.
