the films will debut beginning 2013 and early 2014.

"We landed 19
films that grossed more than $100 million representing two-thirds of all films
that topped that mark, which was by far our best year ever," said Saftler. "Our
film library is deeper, stronger and more diverse than ever across all
genres.  Our movie line-up has been a key primetime ratings driver, and it
continues to provide an outstanding lead-in platform for our original series."

The deals follow FX's acquisitions of several box office
hits, including 28 titles from the 50 highest grossing films of 2011.
