( 4UMF NEWS ) ‘Finding Dory’ Audience Shown Trailer For R-Rated Comedy:
Viewers settling down for a children’s movie in California were given unwelcome food for thought when they were subjected to a trailer featuring the screams of dying vegetables.
A group getting ready to see “Finding Dory” at Brenden Concord 14 in the Bay Area were shown a clip of “Sausage Party,” an upcoming R-rated comedy from Seth Rogen and friends.
The grocery-themed trailer sees a gaggle of anthropomorphic food items taken home from the grocery store, only to realize that they are going to be slaughtered in a suburban kitchen.
“They’re eating children,” a sausage screams as a woman devours baby carrots.
It is not known how many children were in the audience or whether they have eaten anything since, but the slip did prompt an apology from Brenden Theaters.
“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,’ ” President of Operations Walter Eichinger told the East Bay Times.
He said that the wrong movie was started by mistake, prompting a set of trailers for people more interested in adult cartoons than Disney.
“Sausage Party,” which includes stars such as Kristen Wiig, James Franco and Paul Rudd, is scheduled to open in August.

Rogen said at this year’s SXSW that he had been trying to make it for eight years, but no one would work with him on his food fantasy, according to Variety.
While audiences at early screenings enjoyed the Sausage flick, it may not be able to match the success of the Concord viewers’ main course.
“Finding Dory” has reached more than $300 million at the domestic box office in its first 12 days, the fastest an animated film has ever reached that mark.
