A Los Angeles federal judge moved the Twentieth Century Fox vs. Warner Bros. “Watchmen” trial back to Jan. 20th. The reason is, Judge Gary Allen Fees announced, he had to handle a criminal matter on Jan. 6 which was the original trial date for “Watchmen”.
For those who had forgotten what this war is about, Twentieth Century Fox claims they own the rights to the “Watchmen” graphic novel written by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons so Fox can make it into a movie themselves. Too late, Warner Bros. already made the movie and Warner Bros. claim they own the copyrights, not Fox. Fox filed a federal suit aagainst Warner Bros., demanding that Warner Bros. not make the film and not release it at all. Meaning that Fox wants to destroy Warner Bros. “Watchmen” project forever.
Zack Snyder, the director of “Watchmen” has never backed down, they are still moving forward on releasing the film even if they have a lawsuit on their hands. “Watchmen” has already released another trailer and more posters, and the release date for the film is still March 6th, 2009. Warner Bros. continues to fight for their copyrights of the film.
See the new trailer for “Watchmen” here:
I’m still feeling that Warner Bros. will win this battle all the way, so they can release “Watchmen”. Warner Bros. will be victorious. Hang in there, Warner Bros., keep fighting. FOX are a bunch of greedy assholes anyway.
I bought the “Watchmen” graphic novel by Alan Moore, a while back but haven’t read it yet because I’m still reading the “Twilight” series. I will start reading the “Watchmen” graphic novel soon though before the movie comes out. I want this film to be released. It would be sad if Twentieth Century Fox wins and if FOX took “Watchmen” away from us, I will never watch a film by Fox again if they win the battle. Warner Bros. has my support.
