Watchmen likely to be delayed – Life no longer worth living

source: yahoo.com

I feel like Walter Cronkite breaking the news of John F. Kennedy’s assassination. 20th Century Fox studios are seeking an injunction against Warner Bros to prevent the release of Watchmen.

A few months ago, Fox took legal action against Warner Bros for infringing on their rights to produce a film based on Alan Moore’s legendary graphic novel Watchmen. U.S. District Court Judge Gary Feess ruled last week that Warner Bros was indeed in the wrong.

Fox believes they did not properly relinquish story rights which were purchased in the late 1980s. An attorney for Warner Bros has said a settlement is unlikely, which means the case will almost certainly go to trial.

Judge Feess has set a trial date for January 20th. Unless Fox and Warners settle before that date, it is likely Feess will push back the March 6 release of the Zach Snyder directed flick.

First of all – naughty Warner Bros for not checking you had the rights to a major property before making a big budget film out of it.

Secondly – naughty Fox for standing in the way of our Watchmen movie. Do you know how long we’ve been waiting?!

This is literally, the worst news, ever.
