The Hunt - International Trailer (Universal Pictures) HD.
In a group text, Athena Stone (Hilary Swank) celebrates an upcoming hunt of "deplorables." Later, on her private jet, she kills a man who staggers out from the cargo hold.
Eleven captives wake up gagged in a forest for the hunt. In a clearing, they find a cache of weapons and keys to their gags, but upon retrieving them, five are killed by an unseen enemy, and three escape over a barbed-wire fence to a gas station. The station's owners, an elderly couple (Miranda "Ma" (Amy Madigan) and Julius "Pop"), identify their location as Arkansas. The three escapees, each kidnapped from a different part of the United States, realize their situation's similarity to the conspiracy theory "Manorgate". The couple reveal themselves as among the captors and kill all three.
A fourth captive named Crystal Creasey (Betty Gilpin) arrives at the gas station and, noticing that the station's cigarettes are too expensive for Arkansas, kills the couple with a sawn-off shotgun from under the counter. A truck outside hides Croatian number plates under false Arkansas plates. Crystal and another captive, a conspiracy theorist pod caster named Gary, board a train car full of refugees, whom Gary believes to be crisis actors; the train is raided by Croatian soldiers. When Gary tries to convince the soldiers of Manorgate and the refugees' perfidy, a refugee ("Crisis Mike") admits to Gary that he and only he is an actor, but says the raid was not planned for, and offers a head start for Gary's cooperation. Gary uses a grenade the actor had hidden to kill him, and Crystal is taken to a refugee camp.
