FX Networks Sinks Teeth into ‘Jurassic World’ TV Rights

A few months after acquiring the rights to broadcast “Furious 7,” FX Networks comes roaring into summer with the news that it has nabbed the exclusive U.S. television premiere rights to another blockbuster: reigning box office champ “Jurassic World,” starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

The fourth installment in the “Jurassic Park” franchise opened last week and is trouncing box office competition. It currently holds the record for the biggest opening in movie history. With a U.S. debut of $208.8 million, it has squeaked past previous record holder: “Marvel’s the Avengers,” which bowed at $207.4 million in 2012.

This year, FX Networks has also licensed films “Home” and “The Longest Ride.” In 2014, FX Networks licensed 64% of all of that year’s features that grossed more than $100 million at the box office.

[Correction] 12:42 p.m. July 16: An earlier version of this story stated that FX Networks had secured exclusive worldwide rights to “Jurassic World.” It has secured U.S. TV rights.
