Watchmen Court Trial Set For January

Los Angeles federal judge Gary Allen Feess has set a January 6th 2009 trial date for 20th Century Fox's Watchmen lawsuit against Warner Bros.  Discovery and deposition proceedings will take place for the rest of the year. This is some what good news for Watchmen fans, as it was initially rumored that the court trial would take place much later, possibly delaying the release of the film until 2010. Warner Bros has yet to postpone the announced March 6th 2009 release date.
