Many of us have accepted movie previews as a routine introduction to a cinematic experience, but a woman in Xian, China is taking serious legal action arguing that the ads have wasted her time.

Chen Xiaomei is suing the Polybona International Cinema and the Huayi Brothers Media Corporation and asking for a refund for her ticket and additional compensation for emotional damages, amounting to 36 yuan. Asking that preview times to be listed on the cinema's website, all of which would preferably be less than ten minutes long, Chen Xiaomei may change the way cinematic trailers are shown forever if these requests are complied to.
