To top it, trailers for Annabel Come Home and the Child's Play remake were also shown. Naturally, the customers were left extremely upset with the horrific blunder!
Poor young moviegoers in Canada were given an unpleasant shock when they arrived at the cinema hall to appreciate a screening of the light-hearted new Detective Pikachu film - as it before long wound up clear that they weren't viewing the Pokémon escapade they'd been expecting, yet rather the new startling horror movie, The Curse of La Llorona.
Ryan George, who works at film site ScreenRant, live-tweeted the entire catastrophe, disclosing that eyebrows started to raise when the trailers didn't appear to be especially suitable for preceding Detective Pikachu, which sees Ryan Reynolds voicing the soft yellow Pokémon all-time favorite!
In a progression of tweets, he composed, "The theatre I'm in is playing a trailer for Annabelle Comes Home before Detective Pikachu LOOK AWAY CHILDREN OH NO," His next tweet read, "Andddd kids are crying. Now the Joker trailer is playing," The third read, "NOW IT'S CHUCKY OH NO CHILDREN OH NO."

And his final tweet was another nail in the coffin. "OH MY GOSH THEY'RE PLAYING LA LLORONA INSTEAD OF DETECTIVE PIKACHU," (gulp) Detective Pikachu, as you may be aware, follows the Pokémon spin-off game of a similar name, in which players work with a talking Pikachu to unravel mysteries.

The new film pursues Pikachu as he helps Tim (Justice Smith) to tackle a mystery, with one of the movie's antagonist accepted to be Greninja - a dark/water type frog-like Pokémon. The Curse of La Llorona, on the other hand, is a supernatural horror movie that is the 6th installment in The Conjuring Universe.

Based on the Mexican folklore or La Llorona, it pursues a mother who must save her kid from an insidious soul who is attempting to take him. Therefore, you better believe it, The Curse of La Llorona was not exactly what the children were expecting when they dropped by to see the new Pokémon spinoff!
While the experience may have been really nerve-racking for the 'crying' kids, numerous individuals on Twitter have discovered the hilarious side - while some even said they'd experienced something comparable as a kid. One individual tweeted, "I find this absolutely hilarious. I saw my first horror movie when I was 6. The original HALLOWEEN. I would let my kid stay and watch."
Still better than the Spiderman Trailer before watching endgame. That shit happened.— Tipo de incógnito (@S_de_Incognito) May 9, 2019
Another person tweeted, "I saw a kids movie in theaters a few years ago and the theater accidentally played the Redband trailer for the first Deadpool. That got some comments." A third added, "Reminds me of that time the theater I was in played a trailer for Seed of Chucky before Spiderman 2. I was 11. It was traumatizing."
