But The Movie Trailer Looked Great!

A judge in California ruled that fans can sue movie studios if their trailers are misleading.

Why would you want to sue over a movie trailer? Well, two fans of Ana de Armas rented the movie Yesterday because she was in the trailer only to find out that she had been cut from the movie and they felt duped. So duped that they took Universal Studios to court.

The judge ruled that the suit could move forward because a movie trailer “constitutes commercial speech.” The judge did say that this precedent should only apply “to whether an actress or scene is in the movie and nothing else.” Meaning you cannot sue if the trailer gives away all the good parts of the movie.
