Scarlett Johansson has sued Disney, accusing the Marvel owner of breaching her contract by releasing the Black Widow film in cinemas and on its streaming service on the same day, depressing box-office sales.

斯嘉丽•约翰逊(Scarlett Johansson)已起诉迪士尼(Disney),指控这家漫威(Marvel)母公司未遵守与她签订的合同,在电影院和流媒体服务上同步发行电影《黑寡妇》(Black Widow),影响了该电影的票房。

Johansson, the star of the superhero film, had agreed a deal to get paid largely based on box-office sales, and her contract promised Black Widow would be a “wide theatrical release”, according to the lawsuit filed on Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court. 

根据周四在洛杉矶高等法院(LA Superior Court)提交的起诉状,超级英雄电影《黑寡妇》的主演约翰逊曾签署一份协议,同意主要基于票房收入来收取片酬,而且她的合同承诺《黑寡妇》将“在影院广泛发行”。

Johansson projects that the decision to release Black Widow on Disney Plus cost her $50m, according to a person familiar with the matter.

一名知情人士透露,约翰逊估计,在迪士尼+ (Disney Plus)上发行《黑寡妇》的决定使她损失5000万美元。
