THE HUNT (2020)
2020, Universal, 89 min, USA, Dir: Craig Zobel

Jason Blum (THE INVISIBLE MAN, GET OUT, HALLOWEEN), and Damon Lindelof, (WATCHMEN, LOST) deliver a timely and provocative satirical thriller that has already ignited a national conversation and sparked moral outrage. Now, it’s time to decide for yourself. 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 group of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt ordinary Americans 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.
