Conor Woulfe and Peter Michael Rosza filed a federal class-action lawsuit in the U.S. on Friday against Universal, alleging that advertisements for the 2019 film “Yesterday” were “false,” “deceptive,” and “misleading” because de Armas did not Appeared in the final version of the film despite her involvement in the film’s marketing. The lawsuit is embedded in a report on Variety’s entertainment news site.

Woulfe and Rosza said they paid about $3.99 each to rent “Yesterday,” and claim that — if it weren’t for Universal’s “false, deceptive and misleading advertising” — they would not have paid to watch the film.

De Armas, who recently appeared in the latest James Bond outing “No Time to Die,” was “known in the United States and around the world for his successful film and other media appearances,” the lawsuit said. Armas’ “fame, brilliance and talent to promote the film, including her in the trailer for the film promoting “Yesterday.”

The film itself – directed by British filmmaker Danny Boyle – follows an aspiring singer-songwriter Jack who finds himself the only person in the world who can remember Phi after a bizarre event. Guys from the head band.

Jack then rose to worldwide fame by claiming the band’s music was his own.

De Armas was supposed to appear as the protagonist’s love interest in “Yesterday,” but her scene was removed from the final cut.

Movie stars Himesh Patel and Lily James — lawsuit says Universal “cannot rely on their fame to maximize ticket and movie sales and rentals,” plaintiffs say This led the studio to use De Armas in promotional materials to promote the film.

According to Boyle, De Armas was “excellent” in the original cut of the film, and the director also described her as “radiant” in an interview with Cinemablend.

Plaintiffs from San Diego County, California, seek at least $5 million in damages on behalf of all affected customers.

CNN has reached out to Universal Pictures for comment.

The lawsuit has parallels with the 2011 Michigan case over Ryan Gosling’s film “Drive.” The plaintiffs allege that the film’s advertising material made it look like a “chasing, race, or high-speed action driving movie” — akin to “The Fast and the Furious.” The plaintiffs said the trailer failed to reflect that the film contained “many segments of slow-paced interpersonal drama” with violent imagery. An appeals court dismissed the case in 2013.
