Things We Saw Today: A Regal Cinema Screened Fifty Shades Freed Instead of Black Panther

Apparently, someone didn’t get the memo at a Regal Cinema in Atlanta that now is the time for Black Panther, so you can put those copies of Fifty Shades Freed to the side. During a screening of Black Panther, an audience filled with loyal Wakandans was forced to see the first five minutes of Fifty Shades Freed. Now, considering the movie pretty much opens with a display of opulent white privilege, I find this to be a hilarious mix-up. The theater reportedly fixed its mistake after five quick minutes, and everyone in attendance still managed to walk out having seen Black Panther. But still, you come in for the Dora Milaje and instead get Ana Steele? Rude. (via Fox)
