There are two big blockbusters out this month: You might have heard about Black Panther — the critically acclaimed Marvel film about black superheroes in the fictional land of Wakanda. The other is Fifty Shades Freed, a widely criticized installment about two lovers in Seattle.
Clearly, two very different movies.
So when the Atlantic Station theater in Atlanta accidentally started playing Fifty Shades Freed to an audience that was expecting to be transported to Wakanda, things got hilarious.
Twitter user @ChefWaites shared video footage from within Atlantic Station of the unfortunate mixup, and you can hear people in the background laughing incredulously at the mistake. “It’s the opposite movie!,” one moviegoer exclaims.
Thankfully the error was eventually fixed, because no one wants pay ticket prices for T’Challa and instead get Anastasia Steele. Yikes. “I never laughed so hard. I’m happy I came to the black theatre,” @CheefWaites tweeted.
Here’s hoping this doesn’t happen to the crowds of folks expected to hit theaters for the Marvel film’s opening weekend.
