Film Esq. has court papers in which Fox and Warners request a meeting today to “report on a final resolution or, alternatively, to discuss how to proceed on January 20, 2009” which is the date of another court hearing. Is the end near?

BTW some people claim one WATCHMEN site is listing June 3rd as a new release date, but the way we read that, it’s just the European version of 3/6/09. We could be wrong, of course.


  1. 03 June 2009 is a Wednesday. Memorial Day is the earliest it can be, 25 May 2009. So I concur with your hypothesis. Further corroboration can be ascertained by examining the current schedule of releases, but given a big movie like this, it would most likely open on a Friday.
