We all love to watch movies. There’s an audience for pretty much every story you’re willing to tell out there, and if you just look at the box office numbers some of these blockbusters are making, you’ll see that movies have become one of our biggest sources of entertainment. Sadly, some people hate entertainment. Some people think of crazy reasons to sue movies – or more specifically: the people behind those movies.
Let’s take a look at some movies that got sued for reasons that will make you lose all faith in humanity.
A man sued James Cameron because he apparently stole his idea for Titanic from this man’s family. His family had a woman that survived the shipwreck and her husband that died. He’s only demanding the reasonable fee of 300 million dollars plus one percent of the movie royalties.
The Dark Knight
Despite Batman already being a famous superhero for an odd 80 years, the Turkish city of Batman recently discovered that there’s a superhero named after their city, and they sued Nolan and Warner Brothers for using the name of their city without consent. I should mention, of the two parties involved in this argument, DC Comics is the one that actually *did* trademark the Batman name.
An unnamed UK Reddit user was so disappointed in Suicide Squad for not having enough scenes of Jared Leto’s Joker, threatened to take Warner Brothers to court for false advertising. The Reddit user also reported being laughed at by theater employees for wanting his money back. No one has quite struggled like Reddit Guy has.
