The trailer may be viewed as misrepresentation, which infringed upon consumer rights. {nm}

TMZ: Two consumers sued Universal for having ADARM in the Yesterday trailer, but not in the final film as advertised Antibody Jan 22, 08:42

These kind of people need to get a life. {nm} Flash Jan 22, 08:44

Disagree. What if it's a star you cared about? Universal should have cut a new trailer. {nm} Antibody Jan 22, 08:46

Few people knew who Ana de Armas was before Knives Out ... just give them back their 4 bucks. {nm} TheWeekendWarrior Jan 22, 09:16

Now they do after watching JB25, so they rented Yesterday epxpecting to see her. {nm} Antibody Jan 22, 09:18

So they litigate? Seriously? Give them their money back. Jesus. {nm} goodvibe61 Jan 22, 11:18

Yes, otherwise, Universal will keep fooling people who rent Yesterday thinking ADARM is in the movie. {nm} Antibody Jan 22, 12:33

Someone in my Twitter feed made a joke that they should be thankful cause the edits also cut out JCORD {nm} TheWeekendWarrior Jan 22, 15:08

I imagine anyone that crazy about her would've seen Knock Knock long before Knives Out ;-) Tallwonder Jan 22, 09:20

Likely a settlement where everyone who rented Yeterday could gopt for a $4 credit on Prime Video. {nm} Antibody Jan 22, 09:31

People sue over the silliest things...OK, here's your rental $ back + you get a free rental certificate..sheesh. {nm} Flash Jan 23, 11:52

You like being lied to by companies that a product doesn't contain what's advertised? {nm} Antibody Jan 24, 07:43

No.... but is it really worth 'suing' over it? Seems silly, that's all. {nm} Flash Jan 24, 09:19

This strikes at the heart of the potential artistry of film trailers as well. Yet another drum I've beaten for years. goodvibe61 Jan 22, 11:23

Aren't many trailers made before the final cut is made? {nm} DTravel Jan 22, 20:05

Definitely. Hey, Bradley Cooper doesn't smash any car windows in Licorice Pizza....time for a class action lawsuit! {nm} goodvibe61 Jan 23, 09:19

The comparison would be Hey, Bradley Cooper is not in Licorice Pizza! {nm} Antibody Jan 24, 07:42

Only in America. {nm} goodvibe61 Jan 22, 17:05

Comparison to commercials is apt. If the product doesn't deliver what the commercial advertises a lawsuit isn't unreasonable. {nm} MattW Jan 23, 17:59

even assuming that's true (I don't) the only damages is the price of the ticket. {nm} fat bernie Jan 24, 11:37

wasn't her scene like two minutes long anyway? {nm} tealfan Jan 22, 11:56
