They thought they were in for a couple of hours enjoying the ‘radiant’ talents of the Cuban-Spanish actress Ana de Armas.

But two fans who hired the film Yesterday on Amazon Prime after seeing her in the trailer were outraged to discover she did not make the final cut.

Now they are suing Universal Pictures, claiming the Hollywood studio duped them with deceptive marketing that used De Armas’s ‘fame, radiance and brilliance’ to promote a film in which she did not appear.

Yesterday, originally released in 2019, is a romantic comedy about a singer-songwriter who, after being hit by a bus, discovers that he is the only person on Earth who remembers The Beatles. Pictured: Ana de Armas in the 2019 trailer 

Conor Woulfe, 38, of Maryland, and Peter Rosza, 44, of San Diego County, California, say they each paid $3.99 (£2.94) to watch the film and are seeking $5million (£3.7million) compensation in a proposed class action on behalf of all affected viewers.

De Armas, 33, who appeared in the latest Bond film No Time to Die, was to have co-starred as a love interest of the singer played by Himesh Patel, 31.

But her scenes were cut, apparently because audiences did not like that aspect of the storyline.

In their complaint filed in California on Friday, the two fans say: ‘Although defendant included the scenes with Ms de Armas in the movie trailer advertisements, for the purposes of promoting Yesterday and enticing film sales and rentals, Ms de Armas is not and was never in the publicly released version of the movie.’

Universal Pictures has so far not commented.
