Hollywood studio Universal Pictures has been sued by two fans of actress Ana de Armas.

The fans identified as Conor Woulfe and Peter Rosza they were duped into renting a film because she was in the trailer.

They say they each paid $3.99 (£2.94) for the comedy Yesterday, only to discover the actress had been removed from the final cut.

BBC reported that the fans are seeking $5m in compensation on behalf of all affected viewers.

The fans say they were victims of deceptive marketing, and that Universal used de Armas's "fame, radiance and brilliance" to promote a film she wasn't in.

Universal Pictures has yet to comment on the issue.
