Universal Pictures drops "The Hunt"
(Starts at :45)
John talks with Tatiana Siegel of The Hollywood Reporter about Universal Pictures' decision to shelve an upcoming release: "Universal has decided to scrap the release of 'The Hunt' — an R-rated satire in which elites hunt 'deplorables' for sport — following a series of mass shootings across the country. The film had been set to hit theaters Sept. 27. The studio's announcement on Saturday came a day after President Donald Trump took aim at the pic — though he didn't identify it name ... Even before Trump weighed in, the movie sparked an outcry on social media amid the public anger over gun violence, while networks entered into the conversation when ESPN pulled an ad for the film that it had previously cleared. Subsequently, Universal pulled all its spots."
