The film was scheduled for a September 27, 2019 release. "In fact, it is often the people that they so strongly oppose that are actually the Elite", Trump tweeted on Friday in a two-part attack on the film and Hollywood in general. "They don't know where they are, or how they got there".
"They're treating conservatives very unfairly". Though, it's not clear whether the filmmakers made the "Deplorables" or the "hunters" heroes in the film. "She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman at the center of it all", the description said prior to the website being updated.
Universal previously put a pause in marketing following the two mass shootings in OH and Texas last weekend.
The film, a satire about a world where humans hunt each other for sport, starred Hilary Swank, Betty Gilpin, Ike Barinholtz, and Emma Roberts.
"Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables", says one character in the film's trailer, ads for which were pulled earlier this week. Following that, the controversy over the movie then erupted into a maelstrom when it was revealed that the storyline will focus on elite coastal liberals rounding up Trump supporters to hunt them down like wild animals. However, the president did not identify the movie by name.
"Liberal Hollywood is Racist at the highest level, and with great Anger and Hate!" (Presumably at some point down the line, the fact that the movie was "too risky to be released in theaters" could actually be used as a selling point.) They could also sell the rights to distribute to the movie to another studio, or even a streaming service like Netflix, who might jump at the chance to have a hot-button title that's sure to garner headlines and plenty of viewers.
Of the film, he added: "The movie coming out is made in order....to inflame and cause chaos. They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our Country!"
"Hollywood, I don't call them the elites".
