'Guardians of the Galaxy:' Angry Fans Walk Out of Theater

Who were you expecting?
They had a good reason to walk out, though. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, a Regal Cinemas in Virginia on Thursday showed the opening of the 2012 film "Rise of the Guardians."

And not just once.

According to audience member Dean Browell, he and others sat through 15 minutes of previews and five minutes of the animated 2012 film before an employee emerged to apologize.

The audience sat through the same 15 minutes of previews again, he said, only to have "Rise" reappear on the screen. The theater then offered tickets to a later 3D showing.

Browell and others, including his 10-year-old daughter, waited out the snafu. After 10 minutes of waiting, the audience's hopes were raised by some different previews.

Then it happened again. Yes, "Rise of the Guardians" came on the screen for the third time. The angry crowd responded with loud expletives.

"It was now 9:15 p.m., from an 8 p.m. movie," Browell told The Reporter. "Those left in the theater stormed out and then joined a line 50-people long trying to get their money back, anything. We were so disappointed."
