Dates Shifts: ‘The Hunt’ and Blumhouse’s Untitled Horror Switch Spots; ‘Crawl’ Moves Up to July 12

Mar 6, 2019

Universal’s untitled Blumhouse horror film is switching dates with Damon Lindelof’s politically charged action thriller ‘The Hunt.’

The Blumhouse horror will now open on September 27, 2019, while ‘The Hunt’ (also Blumhouse) takes October 18, 2019.

The competition for the Blumhouse horror is 20th Century Fox’s ‘The Art of Racing in the Rain’ and DreamWorks’ ‘Abominable.’

‘The Hunt’ now goes up against the newly dated ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,’ as well as UAR’s ‘The Addams Family.’

Moreover, we know nothing about this Blumhouse horror.

But, we do know about ‘The Hunt,’ which is from director Craig Zobel (‘American Gods,’ ‘Westworld’). The screenplay is from Damon Lindelof (‘Lost,’ HBO’s ‘Watchmen’) and Nick Cuse (‘The Leftovers,’ ‘Maniac’). All three were part of ‘The Leftovers.’

The premise of ‘The Hunt’ is below:

“A subversive feature that takes its cues from the current political climate in America — elevating the current conflict between right and left wings to a more extreme, and violent, level.”

Further, Paramount has moved ‘Crawl’ up from August 23, 2019 to July 12, 2019.

The film is from Alexandre Aja (‘The Hills Have Eyes,’ ‘Horns’), as well as producer Sam Raimi (‘The Evil Dead’ trilogy, ‘Spider-Man’ trilogy).

The premise of ‘Crawl’ is below:

“A young woman (Kaya Scodelario) becomes trapped in a flooding house during a Category 5 hurricane. She then must battle against Florida’s most savage and feared predators.”

“Crawl’ will go up against STX Entertainment’s ’17 Bridges,’ starring Chadwick Boseman, and 20th Century Fox’s ‘Stuber,’ starring Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani.
