the suit is about misrepresentation based on sequences in the trailer that aren't actually in the movie. I understand the the goal of the trailer is to cause intrigue in people which will lead to them seeing it. What they think of the whole movie doesn't matter much, as they have already paid their money, and the trailer can't be held responsible for the quality of the movie, as that is pretty subjective. But as for content, if it's in the trailer it should be in the movie, elsewise I can honestly see how it's false advertising.
I don't know the local carry ordinances for Philly, but here in Texas a surprising number of theaters have a 30.06 posted on entrances. What it boils down to is that even if one is licensed to carry concealed, for which there are checks, testing, etc, any establishment that posts ordinance 30.06 in it's full text on the entrance has legally barred the carry of concealed weapons. Generally this is found at schools, hospitals, etc, but I've been seeing them on every movie theater now that I'm looking, after seeing it on one a few years ago.
And why not? The current incarnation of the TSA gives us neither I'll say. The "security" measures that have been put in place are complete nonsense. Vote with your dollars on this, and simply refuse to fly. A medically unstudied scanner or what would amount to, outside of this situation, a sexual assault is not a good set of options. Since there are no good options currently, don't fly. Don't opt-out, opt not to fly. Sure driving is a lot lenthier, and requires more effort on your part, but it beats the other options. And when a doctor sees me naked, they are a trained medical professional that is doing what I am asking them to do, diagnose a problem that I went to them inquring about. I don't care that a TSA agent probably becomes jaded when seeing thousands of images, it's the principal of the matter. They have no right to see my body simply because I wish to take part in a completely legal activity, which isn't even legal in the sense that drinking is legal, you can do it but if done under the wrong circumstances can lower judgement and allow you to do something stupid that kills someone. This is entering a metal tube with wings, sitting, and standing up in a different place. Transportation should not require me to expose myself to a stranger, and I empathize for the parents out there who will probably be arrested after standing up for their and their children's rights not to be groped.
