Theater accidently played Sausage Party trailer at Finding Dory showing


Recommended Posts




A California audience settling into a movie theatre to watch the family-friendly hit Finding Dory got quite a shock when an expletive-laden trailer for another animated movie, Sausage Party, turned up onscreen.

The incident earlier this month at Brenden Theatre in Concord prompted an apology from the cinema chain.

"Playing that trailer was a one-time honest mistake by a theatre manager moving screens around in an effort to accommodate several large, last-minute groups wanting to see Dory," Walter Eichinger, vice-president of operations for Brenden Theatres, said in a statement to U.S. media.

"In the rush, one hard-working manager clicked the wrong movie. It was caught soon, but not until that trailer was played. We regret it, apologize for it and we are not happy that it happened. We fully realize that this trailer is not appropriate for Dory and we would never schedule something like that."

Here's the trailer.  And yeah, they probably shouldn't have shown that.

I went from shock to how the buns looked to .... cracking up.  

Adult humor, for sure.  Small children might have been confused and perhaps scared (potato/carrot scenes).

I appreciate the management for stepping up and making a sincere apology. It is refreshing nowadays. The sorry-not-sorry is the standard of late.
