THR: A Michigan woman sued FilmDistrict over misleading [DRIVE] trailer   Antibody on Oct 10, 10:12

that's insane.    LuCiFeR on Oct 10, 10:34

And how did she miss all the violence in the trailer. I don't remember any shotguns in the Fast and Furious trailers. {nm}   Vashta Nerada on Oct 10, 10:36

Terrible movie. If anything, the trailer made it look way better than it actually was {nm}   HarryWarden on Oct 10, 10:41

You are, in some ways, my favourite "contrarian" on these forums.. :-)   Facto on Oct 11, 02:39

I hope she wins so that Hollywood will give pause before releasing more of these bait and switch trailers. {nm}   LonePirate on Oct 10, 11:05

All marketing and advertsing is misleading. What makes this case any worse?    islander on Oct 10, 11:23

This was one of the most egregious cases in recent history. It is a good first test case as any other given the false content implications. {nm}   LonePirate on Oct 10, 11:31

Agreed. Also, I give the woman some credit since she's apparently just suing for the price of her ticket and for the practice to stop, not   Ruthian23 on Oct 10, 11:40

It's tricky. I rewatched the trailer. Never says "like fast and furious" or any buzzwords like high octane or thrill ride. Also, the music! {nm}   islander on Oct 10, 11:51

I actually saw Drive without checking out the trailer since I know Refn {nm}   tawdryhepburn on Oct 10, 13:28

*know Refn's work. But I was shocked when I saw it later. The trailer isn't inaccurate. It gives away EVERYTHING! {nm}   tawdryhepburn on Oct 10, 13:29

Just what "false content" was in Drive's trailer? EVERYTHING that was in the trailer was in the movie, even the music! {nm}   tribefan695 on Oct 10, 14:05

I'd join that lawsuit. I was surprised there wasn't one after the Predators trailer grossly exaggerated the number of predators. {nm}   ceregon on Oct 10, 11:16

I'm going to sue Warner for the lost time on, and insulting everyones intelligence in Inception AND Suckerpunch ! {nm}   JMT-NL on Oct 10, 11:55

I also think the film was a progressive portrayal of Jews. How often do you see a real tough guy Jew?   tawdryhepburn on Oct 10, 14:10
