FX is known mostly for its original series, from Sons of Anarchy and Justified to Louie and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. But as much as 80 percent of the cable network's schedule is still devoted to theatrical movies — which is why FX execs have been on a blockbuster buying spree again this summer.
FX has landed the lion's share of this summer's box office No. 1 films, ultimately plopping at least $200 million for movies such as The Avengers, Men in Black 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man. Most recently, FX picked up the rights to last weekend's No. 1 film, The Bourne Legacy.
