Conor Woulfe and Peter Michael Rosza have accused the studio of fraud after they paid $3.99 to rent the 2019 Beatles-themed film on Amazon Prime in January to see Ana after she featured in the trailer for the movie, despite her part being ditched.
The pair say Universal committed “false representation” as the 34-year-old actress appeared for 15 seconds in the 210-second trailer, but did not make the final cut of the movie – about a musician who is one of the few people in the world aware of The Beatles’ music after a mysterious power outage wipes the band’s presence from the Internet.
Daniel Craig Asked The James Bond Producers To Kill 007 After Casino Royale Was A Hit
'I had genuinely thought I would do one Bond movie, then it would be over.'Considering Craig's tenure went on for another 15 years, it's a little surprising to find out that he wanted to call it quits after "Royale." As he told The Times, "I had genuinely thought I would do one Bond movie, then it would be over." This might sound ridiculous in hindsight, but "Casino Royale" had not quite been a guaranteed hit at the time. When news first came out that Craig had been picked to play the new Bond, the initial response was negative. His detractors felt he was too blonde and too, well, boring to do the role justice.
Conor and Peter say the $5 million lawsuit is equal to the number of fans who will have been disappointed by Ana not making the final edit.
Universal claimed trailers came under free speech protection in the First Amendment of the US Constitution, and should be considered “non-commercial”.
But in a new ruling, US federal judge Stephen Wilson ruled the promos were subject to commercial speech regulations, including the California False Advertising Law and the state's Unfair Competition Law.
He said: “Universal is correct that trailers involve some creativity and editorial discretion, but this creativity does not outweigh the commercial nature of a trailer.
“At its core, a trailer is an advertisement designed to sell a movie by providing consumers with a preview of the movie.”
The Absolute Worst Movies of 2022, Ranked
While there were many great movies released in 2022, the year also boasted several films that missed their mark. Here are the 10 worst films of 2022, ranked.Others on this list failed because they were so poorly written and so unbelievable that they became unintentionally funny. On the opposite end of the spectrum, some of these films were supposed to be funny but failed to be humorous in any capacity. Films like Morbius and Firestarter butchered their source material, while Redeeming Love was just too disturbing. Here are the 10 worst films of 2022, ranked from worst to absolutely awful.
Universal said the ruling could burden them with future lawsuits and stressed how other films including ‘Jurassic Park’ had also featured footage not shown in the final cut of the movie.
Ana was originally set to play a love interest in ‘Yesterday’, but writer Richard Curtis cut her role from the final film, saying fans would be upset her character would take away from the primary love interest Ellie, played by Lily James, 33.
‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ screenwriter Richard, 66, told CinemaBlend: “That was a very traumatic cut because she was brilliant in it.
“You know, it’s one of those things where it’s some of our favourite scenes from the film, but we had to cut them for the sake of the whole.”
Step aside, Daniel Craig: The real star of ‘Glass Onion’ was snubbed by the Golden Globes, and we demand to know why .
She carried the film on her shoulders and yet walked away empty handed.Nevertheless, after the true killer was revealed and the credits rolled, the name on everybody’s lips was Janelle Monáe. So strong was her performance that her name was the one to watch out for among the list of Golden Globe nominations for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical/Comedy. However, when The Hollywood Foreign Press Association released the nominations, Monáe’s name was nowhere to be found despite the fact that three years prior Ana de Armas received the nomination in the same category for a role akin to Monáe’s in Knives Out.
