Great news from the entertainment industry: Fox and Warner have settled their dispute, and Watchmen will be released on schedule.
This lawyer is unsurprised — there’s too much money at stake for them to not release the movie. They probably needed a pronouncement from the court as to which one of the two studios had the upper hand in the negotiations, which you sometimes need in a case (and which is why judges who refuse to give such guidance and instead encourage the parties to “go settle it” are so useless, but that’s another gripe for another day).
This geeky fanboy is excited. The previews look great, capturing the essence of the comic. I’m happy enough to post a smiley-face.
