FX Acquires First-Run Rights to 'Prometheus'

FX has acquired the first-run broadcast rights to 20th Century Fox's Prometheus.

The Ridly Scott science fiction thriller, which opened June 8, earned an estimated $50 million during its opening weekend. It lost out on the box office victory to Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, which drew over $60 million.

Prometheus joins other film acquisions that FX had made this year, including 21 Jump Street and The Lorax.
