A few weeks ago I wrote a piece explaining why -- based on the misleading trailers -- you probably hated 'Drive.' That said, even I'm surprised to see Michigan resident Sarah Deming take this to the next level and file a lawsuit against FilmDistrict for releasing a trailer "[promoting] the film 'Drive' as very similar to the 'Fast and Furious' or similar, series of movies." Do I feel FilmDistrict amped up the action in the trailer for 'Drive' in an effort to create a more robust box-office tally? Yes. But 'The Fast and the Furious'? What? Matt Singer over at IFC doesn't think these trailers are at all the same. I watched both trailers again, too. I'm not saying this lawsuit has any merit whatsoever (and from my zero years of law school, I'm saying that it doesn't), but, perhaps, here's why Sarah Deming became confused.
