FX Acquires Television Rights To IRON MAN 3, OBLIVION And More

FX has gained the TV rights for several recent releases, most notably Marvel's blockbuster Iron Man 3. Universal's Oblivion, Sony's Evil Dead and Paramount's Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters will also see their cable premiere on the network.

With the film season of summer 2013 now underway, FX has unsurprisingly gained the television rights to several of this year's releases. Most notably, Marvel Studios' extremely successful Iron Man 3 (which has already passed $700M today, well on its way to a billion) will make its cable premiere on the network. "I’m really pleased with the quality and variety of films we’ve acquired so far this year," said FX Networks executive VP/FXM GM Chuck Saftler. "Iron Man 3 is a massive success and that franchise has performed incredibly well for our networks. The success of Iron Man 3 along with the other titles we’ve purchased this year bodes well for future success on our three networks." The CBM related ones that FX has purchased this year (so far) are Universal Pictures' Oblivion, Sony Pictures' Evil Dead, 20th Century Fox's A Good Day To Die Hard and Paramount Pictures' Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. All these and more will premiere on FX mid or late 2015. Which of these films do you plan on seeing on cable that year?

The Mandarin in IM3 is the best incarnation of the character.

FX has the movies.

Meh, don't really care that they are appearing on FX. Those same movies will appear on the Max Channels sometime next year anyway. Plus those movies will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray sometime this year as well, so I think I'm good.
