Will You Be Able To Watch Watchmen ?

Claiming that it bought the rights to DC Comics' The Watchmen in the 1980s, 20th Century Fox on Monday said that it will attempt to obtain an injunction to block Warner Bros., which owns DC Comics, from releasing an already-completed film based on the flawed superheroes. The film, directed by Zak Snyder ( 300 ) and starring Patrick Wilson and Jeffrey Dean Morgan is scheduled for release on March 6. Fox had sued Warner Bros. last February, and on Monday a federal judge refused to dismiss the lawsuit. L.A. Weekly columnist Nikki Finke commented on her Dateline Hollywood Daily website, "This is indeed a stunning development which could imperil Warner Bros' entire 2009 movie slate." But legal experts interviewed by Wired magazine predicted a settlement under which Warner Bros. would go ahead with the release of the movie with Fox getting a piece of the revenue.
