I’m officially disappointed in the Academy. Dark Knight left out of Best Picture and Best Director for a bunch of stupid festival films that were released in the winter just to get out in time for the Oscars. And come on, Changeling? Really? Wasn’t that supposed to suck? And where’s the love for Gran Torino?
“Here is the official statement from both studios… Warner Bros. and Twentieth Century Fox have resolved their dispute regarding the rights to the upcoming motion picture Watchmen in a confidential settlement. 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 theatres.”—
Usually I’m against Congressional hearings regarding sports issues, but this one is actually worth it. The wheels are in motion for a series of hearing that will look at the current BcS system, with the end result possibly being the elimination of the system and a playoff format being installed. Keep your fingers crossed!
The January 20th court date originally set to determine whether or not the Watchmen movie’s release would be delayed has been canceled. This fuels more speculation that negotiations between Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox have been productive and a deal is imminent. Stay tuned, kids.
Finally… the show that should have only lasted one season is getting canned at the end of its fourth, officially wearing out its welcome. (Also, comingsoon.net spelled ‘canceled’ wrong—click the link to see it for yourself).
A little while ago there was some cube restructuring at the office and yada-yada-yada I have a big 2 foot x 2 foot empty space on one of my walls (soft material-can use pushpins), right above my computer monitor. Any ideas for something awesome that could go there?
Good news for Watchmen fans… there are “productive” talks between 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. over the Watchmen release. Warner Bros. now wants the judge to postpone the hearing on Jan. 20, a day after asking for it to be moved up. LMAO. I hope this gets resolved STAT.
Yay for Dark Knight!! They received nominations for best film from the Producer’s Guild, Writer’s Guild, and now Director’s Guild. Oscar nominations come out two weeks from today… could it be nominated by the Academy as well?
Oh now Warner Bros. wants to act sooner. First they ignore calls from 20th Century Fox from almost a year ago until this thing comes to a head, and now they want a decision on whether to delay the March 6 release sooner than 12 days from now. Way to grow a set Warner. I wonder if this has anything to do with the announcement yesterday that Time Warner had their first in-the-red year in what, forever?
