Universal Pictures’ The Hunt, from director Craig Zobel, using a script written by Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse, seemed to come out of nowhere. The trailers revealed that Blumhouse would be releasing another social satire akin to some of their previous films those in The Purge franchise. In The Hunt, a group of elite high-class rich snobs pay to participate in hunting down and killing people for sport. While the premise of it isn’t shocking per se, the film would be released in theaters in the wake of recent racially-motivated shootings. However, it seems that the premise has caused such a political uproar that it pushed Universal to cancel the release of The Hunt. More on the report below.
We first found out that the Academy Award winning writer and director behind Get Out, Jordan Peele, was producing a new take on The Twilight Zone back in 2017. Since that time we’ve seen a teaser video and a Super Bowl spot, and also found out that Peele himself would be hosting the anthology series.
Now CBS All Access has released an official trailer for the brand new Twilight Zone. On top of that, they’ve also revealed a premiere date for the show. You can find the info and watch the trailer below.

Don’t let the Blockers trailer fool you – this movie is hilarious and empowering, with a strong message that doesn’t try to preach about sex or virginity in one way or another. Director Kay Cannon‘s Blockers is the coming of age comedy I have been waiting for since I was an awkward, teenage girl full of curiosity and hormones, but having media tell me I was wrong for wanting to embrace my sexuality and having to figure everything out by bad advice and a whole lot of mistakes. A perfectly cast trio of comedy all-stars as the parents (John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz) and three incredible young women as the daughters (Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Gideon Adlon) make Blockers enjoyable, entertaining and a gut-busting good time.
