Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' Trailer Played To Children In Cinema

The violent trailer for Quentin Tarantino's R-rated 'Django Unchained' has accidentally been played to children who had paid to see PG Pixar film 'Brave'.

The mistake happened during a 11am screening of 'Brave' at The Giant Screen cinema in Birmingham, Digital Spy reports.

As the packed-out cinema settled down for the animated flick, they first got a glimpse of Tarantino's Western which tackles the subject of slavery in the Deep South.

This is not the first time a cinema has played an inappropriate trailer to children.

Last year, 'Paranormal Activity 4' was accidentally shown to a cinema full of children hoping to see 'Madagascar 3'.

The terrifying mistake happened at Nottingham's Cineworld and the company apologised about the "technical error with the projector".
