A lawsuit from the AFM alleges scores for films like Interstellar, Robocop, Carrie and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island were recorded outside North America.

According to the legal papers, the recordings, which took place in Great Britain, Papua New Guinea and Australia, violate a collective bargaining agreement requiring "(all) theatrical motion pictures produced by the Producer in the United States or Canada, if scored, shall be scored in the United States or Canada, unless excused by the AFM under circumstances not present here."

Members of the AFM are not seeking monetary damages, but are asking a judge to determine how the violations contributed to loss of work.
