Theatergoers who showed up to watch “Finding Dory” in Concord, California, earlier this month were shocked when a preview for the R-rated comedy “Sausage Party” was shown before the PG-rated “Nemo” sequel.
“Sausage Party” is an animated dark comedy, featuring Seth Rogan and Kristin Wiig, about grocery food items who find out that they will be eaten by humans.
Walter Eichinger, the theater’s vice president of operations later apologized by telling the Contra Costa Times, “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 trailer for ‘Sausage Party is not and never has been scheduled with Dory.’ ”
The theater was the Brenden Concord 14. The trailer features profanities and inappropriate content.
