If you saw the summer’s best non-Tarantino studio thus far, Crawl, then you were treated with a special surprise: the full trailer for Craig Zobel’s The Hunt. While a teaser landed online a few weeks back, Universal was kept the full version strictly available in theaters, but now they’ve released it online. Coming from the director of Compliance and Z for Zachariah, it’s also a collaboration with writers Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse (The Leftovers) and producer Jason Blum.
Starring Ike Barinholtz, Betty Gilpin, Emma Roberts, Justin Hartley, Glenn Howerton, and Hilary Swank, the film follows a group of globalist elites who meet at the remote Manor House to hunt down humans for sport. When one of the hunted fights back, the game changes.
Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don’t know they’ve been chosen… for a very specific purpose … The Hunt.
In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a bunch of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt humans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of the hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin, GLOW), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (two-time Oscar® winner Hilary Swank) at the center of it all.
The Hunt opens on September 27.
