Oops

This is a trailer for a new animated movie. It was played in-theatre before a run of “Finding Dory”.

Caution: language

It isn’t too hard to understand why kids were terrified and parents got just a little bit upset. Well, more than a little bit.

“We fully realize this trailer is not appropriate for ‘Dory’ and we would never schedule something like that.”
Theatergoers who showed up to watch Finding Dory in Concord, Calif., earlier this month may have been shocked when a preview for the R-rated comedy Sausage Party was shown before the PG-rated Finding Nemo sequel.

Sausage Party is an animated dark comedy about grocery food items finding out that when they are purchased they will be eaten by humans. Theatergoers were so upset and offended by the showing of the trailer, Brenden Concord 14 released an apology.

Walter Eichinger, Brenden’s vice president operations said it was a mistake that was caught quickly. “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,” Eichinger confirmed in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “The wrong movie was started by mistake.”

Eichinger explained in further detail. “Our movies are now started and stopped by computer and a click of a mouse. We moved a couple of screens to larger houses to accommodate some walk-up groups over a very, very busy Dory weekend. In the rush, one hardworking manager clicked the wrong movie.”

I’m sure the mental health professionals will be rubbing their hands with glee. There are thousands of hours of counselling coming their way.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
