Quick prediction:

Once the movie comes out, conservatives completely flip their script and will be up in arms because it maligns capitalism and our most prolific job creating overlords as predators. They'll completely abandon the complaint based on nothing that the democrats were the ones doing the hunting and they will be upset because now it's capitalists doing the hunting and the regular folk fight back against them—obviously communist propaganda.

Bet on it.

The conservative reaction to this is dumb. For one thing, if no one protested or whatever this movie would probably just die on it's own merits. It sounds like yet another hacky Most Dangerous Game ripoff that we've all seen a hundred times. The worst thing they could do to it is to let it go to theaters and fail on its own.
This is outrage marketing. Someone gins up some online controversy and next thing you know, millions in free publicity. Everyone should learn to recognize it and stop feeding into it.

Yeah that's the other thing I gathered from the movie trailer... that it's a movie that can't decide if it's a black comedy or a thriller or a sort of sci-fi Westworld redux. Seems like a movie created by a committee of people who saw what was trending, but who didn't want to spend money on any recognizable actors. Seems bad. It even had the bad movie announcer voice narrating... or maybe I just imagined that.

So a movie that promotes muder of conservatives by democrats is okay in your view?
When movies have bad guys killing people and the good guys fight back and stop them, the movie is NOT promoting the bad guys?

Get it?

The conservatives are the good guys in the movie.

Anything?

Friendly fire, man. Friendly fire. Someone somewhere misunderstood and the rest of you don't think for yourselves.

Is anything getting in?

Bambi is not promoting hunting. The Hunter is the bad guy.

Die hard isn't promoting terrorists. The terrorists are the bad guys.

Saving private Ryan is not promoting Nazis. The Nazis are the bad guys,

Get it?

Get it?

The hunters in the movie are the BAD GUYS!!!!!!!!


Fuck me.
