Watchmen Christmas news!

I confess: I didn't read the papers yesterday because I was busy cooking.

But what a Watchmen bombshell lay buried in the business section of the New York Times: On Christmas Eve, Judge Gary A. Feess (what a name!) announced his ruling that 20th-Century Fox has the right to distribute Watchmen. Merry Christmas Warner Bros., and here's your lump of coal as big as the Ritz.

This Variety article is a good introduction to the legal morass in which Zack Snyder's much-anticipated adaptation of the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons graphic novel is now mired.

All I can say is, I'm so happy I'm not a Warners executive right now.
