Watchmen decision when?

01.07.2009

UPDATE - Warner Bros. is trying to expedite this decision and is pressing the judge for a January 12th resolution. The judge has not yet ruled on that request but is expected to do so Friday...

Mark January 20th down on your calendar. And not just as a reminder that it's Lorenzo Lamas' birthday (though don't forget to send him a card again this year). That's the day when we'll learn whether the WATCHMEN will be allowed to hit theaters on March 6th as planned or if Fox has successfully blocked the release in favor of a trial by jury. Both lawyers for Fox and Warner Bros. have agreed to let Judge Gary A. Feess decide whether to let WB proceed with the release as planned or if the only way to settle the dispute is to go to trial (and if that happens, who knows when we might finally see the movie). The Judge has previously urged the two sides to try and come to an agreement before this date, hoping there would be some sort of financial settlement that would avoid this countdown to Zero Hour. But Fox, obviously, is seeking the injunction against the March 6th release and Warner Bros. has said that if they must, they are prepared to go to trial. So guess what folks? You lose! It's honestly not looking good at this point but c'mon back on Lorenzo Lamas Appreciation Day January 20th for the lowdown...

I dont get Fox... they water down their movies to get the PG13 rating on their flicks.. most of these flicks end up failing at the box office, and now they prove all they truly care about is $$.. which dont get me wrong, $$ is what keeps everything going... but to make something like this go to this lengths... shows they have absoluely no care for the art but solely for the $$.. and any good company will know that you need to balance the 2 in order to be successful.. somewhere along the way Fox

So on January 20th, can Fox actually delay the release date?

unfortunately, YES THEY CAN.

ah well, as long as it's not delayed infinitely, I'm still going to watch it one way or another.

Amen

It is really disappointing that this movie is going to get screwed over probably.

Rasporange Pant, I endorse what you're saying as well. I thought The Spirit was fine and everyone I watched it with felt the same.

Wow so on one hand I will be celebrating the end of the Bush dictstorship and welcolme the new age of Obama...

...And on the other side I've got to deal with the pressure of whether this movie will come on March 6th or not.

Jan. 20th could very well be my unofficial Doomsday...

As Housecoat man already stated, that's Bush's departure/Obama's inaugeration. Certainly looks like a day to remember. Just give us the March 6th release!

PS: Screw Fox. It can't be said enough.

God wow I would agree about stopping the release of the spirit. The film was a waste of my money and time. the was as bad as a Joel Shaumker batman film.

I will more than likely boycott fox films if it is delayed. I am at a point where I am tired of every film I want to view getting pushed back.

For the love of crap, stop shitting on The Spirit. It was extremely entertaining and intentionally cheesy.

You know - I can repeat the same ol' same ol' That some where right now Alan Moore is kackaling. But my feeling is this - I think sometime ago Alan Moore got a job at Fox and has been pulling the strings on this whole thing all along. - - while kackaling.

Anger... rising...

Now I'm pissed at both WB and Fox. Sure Fox is fucking this up for everyone. But WB kinda is now too. Why the two sides just couldn't find a number to agree upon, I don't know. All Fox wants is some cash... Give 'em 50mil up front and a percentage of the gross and everyone walks away, if not happy, then at least satisfied. Fox gets it's money, WB gets to keep the movie, and we have the assurance that the movie gets shown when it's supposed to.

So weak...

Court Case of the year?

Seriously the fact that Fox waited this long to actually do something is my biggest problem.

fox bs

i forget where I read this, but ever since I read this, it has been my official response to all discussions on this subject:

[paraphrasing, obviously] "why didnt fox bring this up long, long ago? Ill tell you why, so warners could go to the financial and physical strain, and then fox could simply jump in with objections at a pivotal time to make a quick buck"

... Which is so clearly whats going on here... I hope the judge realizes that, and doesnt continue to rule in foxs favor.

It's like O.J.'s trial...

....but for comic-book movie fans. They should televise this trial for all of us. Can you imagine the ratings it could get? BTW, there's a good chance that Fox's co-chairman aka Tom Rothman (The Demon) might be leaving soon so that's good news.

WHAT!?!

I don't understand, how can Fox do this? What are the subjects to be able ti sue another company over a release date? Is the date illegal? (it does not fall on a wednesday or a friday) Did Fox already claim that weekend legally? More info please! :)
