Watching a Watchmen Delay

We reported last week about the legal battle between Fox and Warner Bros. over the release of the much anticipated Watchmen movie.  A judge surprisingly ruled in favor of Fox (really him ruling at all was the suprise).

It was believed that Fox would leverage this ruling and squeeze some cash from Warner Bros.  Instead Fox has decided to act like children and take their ball and go home by seaking a court order to delay the March release of the movie (and thus incurring the wrath of fanboys everywhere).  A hearing is scheduled for January 20th.
