Massachusetts Theater Shows Saw 3D Instead Of Megamind

theater accidentally shows saw 3d instead of megamind

Okay, so theaters make mistakes. Sometimes the popcorn is stale. Sometimes the soda is flat. Sometimes a theater shows a preview for Jumanji when you're about to watch Jumanji. These things are forgivable.

This Is NOT forgivable but it is HIGHlarious!

At Showcase Cinemas in Revere, Massachusetts, parents THOUGHT they were taking their children to go see the kids movie Megamind.

They thought wrong.

Instead of showing a 3D family film, the theater accidentally started playing Saw 3D instead. Apparently parents got nervous when the previews seemed a bit "advanced" for children.

Once the theater realized their mistake, the children were told to cover their eyes during the horrific scenes of violence onscreen while they dealt with the problem.

Um….why didn't they immediately stop the movie? Or tell the kids to leave the theater? There are def a few better ways they could have dealt with that situation.

Here's what Dolph Rau, an upset father had to say about his traumatized child:

“He came and slept with us and we thought we had gotten past that years ago. He said that he had a few nightmares. Again, all that I would like to see come out of this is that its not going to happen again.”

To make up for their mistake, the movie theater gave the children one free ticket each. RIGHT! As if the parents would EVER take their children back to that theater!

How would U react if U took your kids to see a family movie and Saw 3D started playing?

Megamind Makes Mega Bucks!

It pays to have big name celebrities!

The Dreamworks animated film, Megamind, starring Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Brad Pitt, and Jonah Hill took over the box office this weekend, stealing the number one spot with $47.7 million.

The Robert Downey, Jr. and Zach Galifianakis' road-trip comedy, Due Date also had a strong opening, taking the number two spot with $33.5 million.

The Tyler Perry drama For Colored Girls with a huge ensemble cast, including Janet Jackson and Whoopi Goldberg, took in an expected $20.1 million, which also did fairly well considering the heavy story lines that may have driven some audiences away.

The Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren action film, Red remained in the top five, coming in fourth place with $8.9 million.

Horror-flick Saw 3D took a big drop, rounding out the top five, with $8.2 million.

What did U see this weekend?

Calling All Superheroes! Will Ferrell Wants YOU!

Oh, the things actors will do for the sake of marketing!

Word is Will Ferrell is desperately looking to get people excited about his new movie, MegaMind, so he's throwing a little gimmick party to get the ball rolling.

He's looking to claim the world record title for the largest gathering of superheroes by inviting 1,500 costumed superheroes to a the L.A. Live Theater on October 2nd. All you need to do is show up in an "easily recognizable superhero" getup and you're cool!

Sounds lame…unless Brad Pitt comes to judge! Then we'll strap on a Quail Man costume, for sure!
