    Probably a misuse:

    The world was treated to hindsight at the premiere of Pink Panther 2 >> It was reminded of a previous film by this one.

    OP, the phrase following right after would have shed a lot of light on the meaning of the underlined words, both for you and the people you're asking on the board. I found the following excerpt:

    Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor bury the hatchet during the premiere of Pink Panther 2.

    Foes have turned friends as their children work together on a film. We are talking about Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor. The world was treated to a rare sight at the premiere of Pink Panther 2, held in New York recently. Anil attended the premiere as a guest invited by his one-time rival, Amitabh.
    This takes away all doubt. The reconciliation of the two rivals clearly indicates a 'rare' event.
