A film advert featuring an explicit scene was accidentally shown to children waiting to watch Disney's 'Frozen'.

The trailer, for the explicit 'art-house epic' Nymphomaniac, was shown to children expecting to see Disney's 'Frozen' in a cinema in Florida.

The cinema have claimed the mishap was a result of a 'technical error'.

Vanity Fair described the trailer as 'one of the most explicit ever' to be shown in mainstream cinemas.

Another trailer for the Lars Von Trier film was removed from YouTube for "a violation on YouTube's policy of nudity and sexual content".

Nymphomaniac first hit headlines when it was announced that the film would feature real sex instead of Hollywood's normal simulated sex scenes, causing many to label the film as 'pornographic'. However, according to the Guardian, the film will "use digital trickery and body doubles to portray its famous stars having sex."

The film has barely left the headlines since, with many outlets reporting that La Bouef auditioned for the role with a 'home-made sex tape'.

Shia la Boeuf was cast in the male lead and it was widely reported that his girlfriend, Karolyn Pho, was concerned about the idea of the actor engaging in real sex on set with other actresses. It was later reported that the actor began dating Nymphomaniac co-star Mia Goth following the end of filming.

More recently Shia La Beouf's 'Nymphomaniac' sex scene was removed from YouTube but later allowed back on the site with an age-restriction.
