BREAKING NEWS: Fox wins feud against Warner Bros. over “Watchmen”, judge discovers Fox owns the copyrights…

I’m usually never shocked and surprised by any news stories, but yes, I’m very shocked with this story. After a Christmas morning of unwrapping my gifts with family, I turn on the computer and the sad news that Twentieth Century Fox has proven once again they own the distribution rights to the “Watchmen” movie.

While the trial was pushed back to Jan. 20th, Judge Gary Allen Fees did some more investigation and that’s when he discovered that Fox owns “Watchmen”. The judge will give out a more detailed ruling of the film soon.

Warner Bros. never backed down, they continue to make and to release the film. The film was originally supposed to be released March 6th, but now it looks like Fox is going to win this battle, we may not even see the film get released at all.

Yep, I hate officially hate Twentieth Century Fox. Fox owns the copyrights to the movie, true, they have every right to do what they want, but it’s clear Fox could give a rats ass about Watchmen fans looking forward to the movie.

That’s what happens when your ego get so high up in your head, Fox are a bunch of shady and greedy morons anyway. It’s no surprise, ’cause Twentieth Century Fox is owned by News Corp. Rupert Murdoch is a greedy rich man and it would not surprise me if he had something to do with hiring Fox to battle “Watchmen” from Warner Bros. Rupert and News Corp are all douchebags. I’m dissapointed by this news.

Report: “Watchmen” trial date pushed back to Jan. 20th…

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.

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.

Report: Snyder doesn’t seem worried about Fox’s “Watchmen” battle…

“Watchmen” director Zack Snyder participated in an online press conference Q&A session, when asked about the film’s lawsuit with Fox vs. Warner Bros, he replied back saying he’s just been working on the movie and it hasn’t hit him yet. He also goes on saying if Fox really wanted to shut down the movie, they would have gone over to the “Watchmen” filming set to stop filming, but they haven’t. They’re just having fun making the movie, not worrying about any lawsuits.

Good for him! Glad he is not bothered by it and not paying attention to that drama. He seems like a good man.

Report: Zack Snyder signs deal to make three video games with EA…

Zack Snyder who is the director of films such as “300” and the upcoming “Watchmen” (if it gets released and not canned by Fox, that is) has signed a deal to make 3 original video games with Electronic Arts. EA inspired to work with Snyder by the success of “300”, since the film’s audience is mostly young men in their 20’s and 30’s who also buys the most video games, EA thinks that Snyder would make really good video games being that “300” movie is almost video game like.

Remember now, Snyder is signed to do three “original” video games, meaning he won’t be doing sequels of other video games or no video games adapted from movies. Totally original.

Looking forward to what Snyder is going to come up with, he’ll come up with really good stuff for the video games.
