Attorneys for 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. fighting over the release of the superhero flick Watchmen asked U.S. District Judge Gary Allen Feess to delay a hearing Friday so settlement discussions can continue over the weekend.

Feess agreed to continue the hearing but says a trial over whether to block the film’s March release is still set for Jan. 20.

Fox is suing to stop the release of Watchmen, claiming Warner Bros. violated its interests by filming the tale. Feess agreed last month that Fox appears to have the right to distribute the film.

Since then, the two sides have made concessions and according to court documents, conducted settlement talks last weekend.
