BY JAKE COYLE, NEW YORK — Last fall, the violent satire “The Hunt” became ensnarled by some of the very politics it so playfully parodies.
Universal Pictures pulled “The Hunt” from release after a series of deadly shootings and wave of right-wing criticism, including from President Trump.
Now, the makers of “The Hunt” want a do-over.
And they feel they have a movie worthy of not a second chance but a legitimate first impression.
“The Hunt” isn’t the liberal screed it was accused, sight unseen, of being.
Rather, it’s a heightened, bipartisan farce that puts the red-vs-blue vitriol of social media into a bloody action-movie blender.
