A theater full of moviegoers in Calfornia were treated to a very unsavory surprise when a “Sausage Party” trailer was played before a recent showing of “Finding Dory.”
The problem is, the R-rated “Sausage Party” is DEFINITELY not for kids (did the name give it away?). Once the sunny exposition is over, the audience is treated to graphic human-on-food violence and, if you’re watching the red band trailer, a fat bushel of profanity.
Needless to say, the “Finding Dory” audience at the Brenden Concord 14 in Concord, California was probably not expecting such a jarring (heh) display.
The vice president of operations at Brenden Theatres was quick to offer an apology and an explanation.
“Playing that trailer was a one-time honest mistake by a theater manager moving screens around in effort to accommodate several large last-minute groups wanting to see ‘Dory,'” Eichinger said in a written statement to the East Bay Times. Eichinger also said the trailer was part of a movie reel that was “started by mistake” and the theater would “never schedule something like that” ahead of a children’s feature.
