After the lawsuit, Universal argued that the trailer is an expressive artistic work that summarizes the film’s story and therefore should be considered “non-commercial” speech. However, Judge Wilson ruled the case differently:
“Universal is right that trailers involve some creativity and editorial discretion, but that creativity does not overcome the commercial nature of a trailer. Basically, a trailer is an ad created to sell a movie by providing consumers with a preview of the movie,” he wrote in the decision.
Consequently, the trailer constitutes false advertising and the suit of the two fans was accepted in the United States.
In Yesterday, Himesh Patel lives Jack, a failed musician who wakes up one day and realizes that everyone except him has forgotten the existence of The Beatles. Although Ana de Armas shot several scenes playing Roxane, a woman Jack falls in love with, director Richard Curtis decided to cut the scenes because Roxane’s plot did not please the public in the test sessions.
