FX Making Some Big Moves, Acquires ‘Mission: Impossible — Fallout’, ‘Deadpool 2’, ‘A Quiet Place’ And More!

Published On August 7, 2018 » 575 Views» By Z-rowe »

If you missed this year’s biggest box office hits, don’t you worry…FX has you covered. The cable network has purchased some of the biggest blockbusters of 2018.

FX has purchased Mission: Impossible — Fallout, Deadpool 2, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, A Quiet Place, Blockers, The Equalizer 2, and Skyscraper.

Those are all the top-grossing movies of 2018, except for Marvel/Pixar titles, which are not available to purchase thanks to Disney.

Apparently, FX switched up their business plan a few years ago after realizing theatrical films performed much better with the audience. They had been spending money on purchasing the rights to off-network shows, but now they’re almost 100% focused on landing all the blockbusters.

“FX, whose movie deals also include streaming rights to make the films available on the network’s digital platforms, made the switch several years ago, opting to spend the bulk of its acquisition budget on theatrical films instead of off-network shows. With a few rare exceptions, most notably The Big Bang Theory, movies significantly outperform off-network series on basic cable.”

It’ll be interesting to see how Deadpool 2 plays on basic cable. Will it even be the same movie? They’re going to have to cut at least 20 minutes.
