FX Acquires Premiere Rights to X-Men: First Class
The television channel FX has announced they’ve acquired the premiere rights to the movie X-Men: First Class according to Hollywood Reporter. The movie debuted in first place this weekend with a good, but not great take of $56 million domestically. The movie has gotten excellent reviews from both fans and critics. The movie will air in late 2013 or early 2014.
“We’ve been on a roll with No. 1s this summer and it’s going to be a film that will work really nice with the stable of superhero movies that we have at the network,” FX executive vp Chuck Saftler told The Hollywood Reporter.
