Default Did a Theater Accidentally Show ‘Nymphomaniac’ During a ‘Frozen’ Screening?

There’s a journalism adage that states, “Everyone reads the false report and no one reads the correction.” That’s true enough with newspapers but it’s an even bigger deal in the Internet age, where not only does news circulate faster, but that widespread original story is likely to show up in searches long after the report was disproved or corrected. That appears to be the case with the story of how the sexually explicit “red band” trailer for Nymphomaniac was accidentally shown at a theater filled with moviegoers there to see Disney’s animated Frozen.

Tracking the story is a fascinating exercise in how an urban legend is formed.
