Since then it has been working on all kinds of big franchises such as supernatural activityAnd the vile On Halloween He is also responsible for toppers such as split, ripAnd the Get out On Invisible Man. However, according to Jason Bloom, there is also a very disappointing movie.

According to founder Blum, this is about parody the huntmet o Hilary Swank, from Craig Zobel. The story revolves around a group of poor conservatives who wake up in a remote place where the rich leftists hunt and kill them for the sake of sports.

The topic got the American minds wrong in the whole electoral fray. Even President Donald Trump spoke very negatively about the movie, without even having seen it. As a result of all the criticism (and the shootings in Dayton and El Paso, although they had no connection to the film), Universal Studios decided to cancel the film’s release entirely.

Worldwide, the movie did well for around $16 million. Bloom sees The Hunt as the “biggest disappointment” of his career.
