When you take your kids to go see a movie where they have to find Dory again, I bet the last thing you’re expecting to see a trailer before it is for an animated, raunchy and violent R-rated Seth Rogen comedy about how scary it is for food when humans eat them. Including one sequence where baby carrots (the children!) are chomped to death by a suburban mother.
Hilariously enough though, that’s exactly what happened recently when the Brenden Concord 14 Movie Theatre in Concord, CA played the Sausage Party trailer to a packed audience of families and kids before a showing of Finding Dory. To put it simply, Tyler Durden would be proud.
After several, understandable complaints from families as well, Brenden’s VP of Operations, Walter Eichinger, released an official statement regarding the incident, apologizing for the theatre’s “mistake,” promising that it will not happen again (no matter how funny we might find it):
“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. The wrong movie was started by mistake… It was caught soon, but not until the trailer played. We regret it, apologize for it, and we are not happy that it happened.”
Oh I don’t know, there were a lot of important life lessons included in that trailer I think. Including that eating baby carrots is the equivalent of murder, and what happens when a man dog meets a woman bun…. Oh wait.
