Two fans of Blade Runner 2049 actress Ana de Armas filed a class action lawsuit Friday after renting the 2019 film Yesterday only to discover that de Armas, who appears in the trailer, had been cut from the final film, Variety reports.

Per Variety, "Conor Woulfe, 38, of Maryland, and Peter Michael Rosza, 44, of San Diego County, California, say they each paid $3.99 to rent the movie on Amazon Prime." The suit claims that, because of de Armas' absence, Woulfe and Rosza were "not provided with any value for their rental or purchase."
