watchmencomedianpostersmall-111308An attorney for 20th Century Fox tells the AP that the studio will seek an order to delay the release of Warner Bros. Watchmen.  U.S. district Court Judge Gary Feess last week came down with a ruling agreeing with Fox that Warner Bros. had infringed its copyright by developing and shooting the film.  A trial is scheduled for January 20th to decide any remaining issues.

An attourney for Warner Bros. said that he didn’t know if an appeal was coming, but that he thinks a trial is necessary and a settlement is unlikely.

Watchmen is still scheduled for release on March 6, 2009.
