FX Networks continues to be the most aggressive buyer of major theatrical hits, locking up the exclusive U.S. commercial television premiere rights to “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation,” which topped the weekend’s domestic box office.

The latest “Mission: Impossible” film will be available for FX Networks and its suite of networks: FX, FXX, FXM and the video-on-demand platform FXNow. In addition, FX Networks has acquired the comedy “Trainwreck,” which has grossed nearly $80 million domestically, as well as “Spy,” “Pixels” and “Paper Towns.”

So far this year, FX Networks has secured the exclusive U.S. commercial television premiere rights to several blockbusters, including “Minions,” “Jurassic World” and “Furious 7.” It has also licensed “Terminator: Genisys,” “Ted 2,” “Pitch Perfect 2,” “Taken 3,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and “Home.”

In 2014 FX Networks licensed 67% of the year’s feature films that grossed more than $100 million at the box office.
