Now this is a totally absurd news, but here it goes: A Michigan woman named Sarah Deming is suing the distributor of Nicolas Winding Refn's DRIVE, as well as the movie theater where she went to watch it. The reason of her filing the lawsuit? She claims the misleading trailer of DRIVE which seemed to promise more action than it actually delivered!
According to Deming's lawsuit, she claims "DRIVE bore very little similarity to a chase, or race action film…having very little driving in the motion picture". Apart from that, she also claimed there were "extreme gratuitous defamatory dehumanizing racism directed against members of the Jewish faith." If that's not absurd enough, Deming's lawyer is claiming that the anti-climactic trailer is a violation of the Michigan Consumer Protection Act. (now this is new to me).
Deming is now seeking for a refund, as well as "an end to misleading movie trailers". Wow, whatever that means, this is seriously one of the most absurd cases I've ever heard.
