Fox Owns Rights to Watchmen - Judge Rules

So seems the judge as finally ruled out that "20th Century Fox should prevail on crucial issues"! So Fox wins and we as happy-movie-goers + watchmen-fans + freakingly-eager-anticipants-of-watchmen-movie-adaptation might all be screwed!!

For those of you who have been happily Oxycodoning themselves to oblivion, there has been this infernal lawsuit going on between 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. 20th Century Fox, being the smart and highly materialistic company (who isn't for that matter) they are, bought rights to Watchmen movie two decades back and now Fox Studios is after Warner Bros just at the opportune moment when Watchmen has turned into the most anticipated movie of 2009!

But we might be screwed though? I'll tell you how - The damn thing says something to the effect of "The parties may wish to turn their efforts from preparing for trial to negotiating a resolution of this dispute or positioning the case for review". In simple English it means that if 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros don't come to a resolution then Watchmen's release date might have to postponed! Yes, if things between Warner Bros and 20th Century Fox don't turn out well then Watchmen will NO LONGER be released on 6th Mar 2009! Go figure!
