(Disney Pixar/Columbia Pictures) 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.
"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.
We fully realize that this trailer is not appropriate for Dory and we would never schedule something like that." Finding Dory is a PG-rated sequel to Pixar's earlier under-sea hit Finding Nemo.
Sausage Party, slated for release in late summer and billed as "the first R-rated CG animated movie," follows a sausage that discovers the horror of what happens to groceries after they leave the supermarket.
