Hey folks. I don't have much to say today, so I thought I'd give an update on the ever elusive Watchmen release date.
The March 6 release is not cancelled - just not determined. It seems that recently, and I'm summing up, Fox claimed they had the right to make this movie "first". They had bought the rights way back in 1986, but they didn't do anything. Now that Warner Bros. has stepped up to the plate to make the film, it seems Fox wants a chunk of the action. Though Fox was also offered a chance to make the film in 2005, they passed it up, saying the script was, and I quote, "one of the most unintelligible pieces of $hit" they had seen in years.
However, Fox is in the process of suing WB for the rights to the film. A judge will determine the release of the film.
I don't want to rant too much, but my bitterness towards Fox is growing more and more everyday. Maybe it's because they took, in my opinion, two of the greatest television shows of all time, Arrested Development and Firefly off the air. Maybe it's because I had a bad experience with some employees. Maybe it's because their news is fake. And now this.
Well that's all I have for you today. See ya.
