THE LAWSUIT IS TEARING THEM APART: Nikki Finke is reporting that the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California has issued a preliminary order finding in 20th Century Fox's favor and enjoining the distribution and release of Watchmen by Warner Brothers. This same judge previously nailed WB with an injunction they had to buy out before releasing Dukes of Hazzard, and given that the publicity blitz has already begun, WB will pay out. (A commenter at Finke indicates that this may be a power play by Fox to get the rights to the 60s Batman TV show for release on DVD.) Keep watching the docket.
