Watchmen Release Date Ruling to Come Jan. 20

It's like the world is watching the Watchmen today with the arrival of a pretty juicy Japanese trailer for the movie (check it out after the jump) and the news that a ruling regarding the movie's release date will come on Jan. 20. Here's more:

In court papers filed Monday with U.S. District Judge Gary A. Feess, attorneys for Fox and Warner Bros. jointly said they would let the judge decide Jan. 20 whether Fox could block the film's theatrical distribution, now scheduled for March 6, as Fox has been seeking all along as part of its copyright infringement lawsuit against Warner Bros.

Fingers (and toes and eyes and anything else) crossed that the end result will be a March 6 release. For now, there's a new Japanese trailer online and it's pretty intriguing. There's more footage, and most notably we get a glimpse of the politically-themed parts of the story (we see Nixon and get a sense for the political atmosphere). Of course, it is in Japanese, but it's just as absorbing (if not more so) than any of the previous trailers. To check it out,

ilanac13, the movie's release just got complicated by a court ruling -- Warner Bros. made the movie, but it seems 20th Century Fox (among others) was trying to make a movie out of it way back when, sank some money into it, and have successfully argued they should retain the distribution rights. so. that *does* give Fox the opportunity to stall its release . . . but that'd also leave them just about the most reviled film studio in America. fingers crossed they don't do something stupid.
