Warner Bros. & Fox are about to play a game of chicken as both studios are not backing down over the movie "Watchmen".
Warner Bros. is refusing any type of settlement. Fox is saying they don't want the settlement, they want the movie.
Warners released this statement: "We respectfully but vigorously disagree with the court's ruling and are exploring all of our appellate options," the studio said. "We continue to believe that Fox's claims have no merit and that we will ultimately prevail, whether at trial or in the Court of Appeals."
Fox is looking to block the March 6th 2009 release date. They released a statement as well: "We are gratified by the recognition of our rights in the Judge's order, which speaks for itself."
So Fox does not want the settlement, they want the movie released as a Fox release. This def looks like it is heading to court on January 20th, 2009. Get your popcorn ready!-Dr.FB
