One Piece Red: fire alarm, screaming spectators… previews spoiled by fake fans
By Quentin Piton Journalist Series – Cinema Journalist specializing in series, cinema, but also anime and manga. Spends his time dreaming of Emma Watson, considers Olivier Giroud the GOAT and refuses to speak with those who are against the absolute truth which is: How I Met Your Mother is a better series than Friends. We do not yet know the end date of Eiichiro Oda's manga, but that of the release of One Piece Red, the new film adapted from the anime, is known to all fans: see you on August 10, 2022 at movie theater. A highly anticipated event, which has already been spoiled in Marseille or Bordeaux this weekend. The reason ? During a few previews, fake fans ruined viewers' sessions by setting off the fire alarm or screaming in the room.
While Eiichiro Oda's manga is slowly approaching its end, One Piece will make its grand return to cinemas this Wednesday, August 10, 2022 with Red, a new film centered this time this about Shanks and his family. A new episode eagerly awaited by fans, which some have already been able to discover in preview this weekend.
Previews of One Piece Red ruined by fake fans
Unfortunately, like some sessions of the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0, part of the anime/manga fan community took the opportunity to behave as shamefully as deplorable, which logically spoiled the experience of other spectators around.
< p>Thus, as you can discover below, it was in Marseille that dozens of fans did not hesitate to scream and throw popcorn in the air during the screening, but also to run anywhere. into the room and get undressed. A ridiculous attitude that proves one thing to us: their IQ is obviously too low to understand the concepts of respect and value yet advocated at length by Eiichiro Oda and Luffy.
Yes, we can only advise them to go back to watching The Teletubbies, which is probably closer to their mental age.
A fire alarm on in full session
But these Marseille “fans” are not the only ones who deserved a little head on foot with Sanji this weekend. According to the illustrator Vivi-Zama, a preview organized in a cinema in Merignac, near Bordeaux, would also have been the victim of an even more cynical and disrespectful overflow.
“Are you saying there are people who, because they didn't like the movie One Piece Red, simply set off the fire alarm in the cinema, preventing other viewers from finishing the movie, he revealed on Twitter.As you can imagine, the cinema was forced to reset the power, cutting off the power to the entire cinema and forcing the cinema to reimburse all the spectators (of all the sessions eh, not only those of OP) “.
A version validated by many Internet users who reacted to his thread by providing some clarifications. According to a spectator present, “the alarm sounded perhaps 15-20 minutes later. the end of the film“, during “a key moment with Shanks“, while another added, “lots of customers spoke very badly to the hostesses under the pretext that they managed the situation very badly when they had nothing to do with it“. A shame all the way.
If these cases remain fortunately rare and do not reflect the real community of anime fans, these overflows nevertheless seem to be more and more recurrent. A real problem whose future consequences could be dramatic. Faced with such degradation n hardware and reputations, cinemas could soon refuse to show such films…
