Sources say #Trolls2 's top voice stars, including #JustinTimberlake and #AnnaKendrick were not informed ahead of the announcement that the film would be arriving on-demand early. Now, the stars’ reps are asking for them to be paid https://t.co/38Edj0Hgfr— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) May 6, 2020
Univesal threw the first rock against the rich as pushing Trolls: World Tour to home video bc of Covid-19 cheated not only theaters, but the stars themselves out of bonuses. Kendrick and Timberlake got the same amount of warning as AMC and Regal about the sequel's shuffle.
I say 'cheated' loosely, bc who cares if Justin Timberlake gets paid money. But we can pay Anna Kendrick. That's okay.
The stars' reps are now asking for them to be paid, because they did publicize the film.
Universal is still going "Oh yeah, this did SO WELL!", so we'll see if they pay the stars. The article says that the movie is still in the red, and AMC is still not showing their films, wherever films are shown these days.
