Movie theater in Florida accidentally plays "Nymphomaniac" trailer ahead of Disney movie

Unsuspecting audiences expecting to enjoy Disney’s animated movie “Frozen” in a Tampa, Florida movie theater were recently shown the sexually explicit trailer for “Nymphomaniac,” Lars von Trier’s art house film about sex addiction.

“They put in the filler, it looked like Steamboat Willie, the old Mickey Mouse cartoon, and then all of a sudden it goes into this other scene,” said Lynn Greene to Tampa’s Fox affiliate.

The trailer is so graphic that a preview clip was removed from YouTube in November for violating the terms of sexual content and nudity.

Adults at the theater reportedly covered their children’s eyes and ears, while others rushed out of the theater. “It seemed like forever when you’re trying to, you know, cover a little guy’s eyes,” continued Greene. “I didn’t have enough hands to cover his ears too and he got the sound down real good.”

Von Trier’s provocative film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Uma Thurman, Stellan Skarsgård, Christian Slater, and Shia LaBeouf, using body doubles from the waist down during the graphic sex scenes. It will be released in hardcore and softcore versions and premieres in Copenhagen on Dec. 25. Watch the very NSFW (or kids) trailer below:
