Children and parents waiting for a screening of Frozen to begin at a cinema in Florida last week got a shock when sexually explicit images appeared up on the big screen instead.

The audience was waiting to see the animated feature, the Guardian reports, which was delayed due to a technical error. But as they were waiting, the screen suddenly filled with footage from another film, one featuring graphic sex. One audience member recognized the footage as the trailer for Nymphomaniac, an upcoming art house film from Danish director Lars Von Trier. Parents reportedly wasted no time in high-tailing it to the exits with their children.

Nymphomaniac stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Uma Thurman, Stellan Skarsgård, Christian Slater and Shia LaBeouf and once released in the U.S., it’s almost certain to receive an NC-17 rating. Even the film’s trailer is extremely graphic, depicting multiple sex acts. Frozen on the other hand, is the latest PG-rated Disney princess film, which has made a killing at the box-office. Honestly, it’s hard to imagine two movies that are any more different.

Oops...might have shocked the parents.  In the sixth grade my neighbor's twins and I tried our best doing a threesome, mostly unsuccessful.   Our parents handled it very low key.  Life went on for all very normally.  Nobody was scarred for life.

I wish I was there. I'd sue them so good.

What kind of parents are unable to tell their kids: "Listen... that's called sex (and it's a fictional movie). There's nothing to be scared about. If you want, we can talk about it." Instead they get mad, grab their kids, rush them out of the theater, showing their children that there's something incredibly wrong with a natural aspect of life. And then they worry if this society produces sociopaths...

@TamDizzle Another suit happy idiot.  What good would a lawsuit do?  Do you want to subject your kids to the questioning or depositions.  Let it go, don't make a big deal about it.  Your kids will forget if you don't keep it alive.

@iminshock31 Ever seen the documentary Child of Rage? Because perverts like you who want to sexualize children cause these problems. Watch it here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2-Re_Fl_L4 

There's nothing wrong with sex. Sexualizing children is wrong, though. As ChrisCA says, there's a time and place for everything. BTW, fictional movie or not, that's real sex.

@iminshock31There's a time and place for everything. Studies show that exposing young children to graphic sexual content can cause them issues to say the least. There is a big difference between introducing your children to sexual reproduction and most sex acts that people consider "normal"  these days.
