Watchmen dispute settled

Finally the dispute between Warner Bros. and Fox has been settled and Watchmen will open at movies theaters on March 6.

The details are that Warner Bros. will get to distribute the film while Fox will get an upfront fee that should cover legal and development fees.  Fox will also receive a cut of the box office gross for not having their logo on the film.

A joint statement issued by the studios said, "Warner Bros. acknowledges that Fox acted in good faith in bringing its claims, which were asserted prior to the start of principal photography. Fox acknowledges that Warner Bros. acted in good faith in defending against those claims. Warner Bros. and Fox, like all Watchmen fans, look forward with great anticipation to this film's March 6 release in theaters."

So roll on March 6 then we can all see how the story fairs on the big screen.
