Cinema apologises for screening X-rated Sausage Party trailer before Finding Dory


They're both animated movies. They'll both probably be very good films. But that's basically where the similarities between Pixar's Finding Dory and Seth Rogen's Sausage Party end, with the former aimed at kids and the latter very much aimed at adults.

In terrible-but-let's-face-it-absolutely-hilarious news, an employee at a cinema in Concord, California, busy trying to put on extra screenings of the long-awaited sequel to Finding Nemo, inadvertently managed to screen the hugely NSFW version of the trailer for Sausage Party to a theatre full of children.

Walter Eichinger, Brenden’s VP of operations said in a statement,  “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.”

Come on guys, give yourself a break, the sooner your kids learn all those naughty words, the sooner they'll be the cool ones in the playground. And learning the terrible truth about how roast potatoes are made is a lesson we all need to learn.

On the other hand, as a Twinkie says in the Sausage Party trailer, “Once you see that shit, it’ll fuck you up for life.”

Compare and contrast the trailers below.
