FX announced that it has acquired rights to televise 19 more movies, completing its acquisition of 2011 releases, B&C reports.

Among the titles are "Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol," "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "We Bought a Zoo," all of which are still in movie theaters. The 19 films will begin airing on FX in 2013 and early 2014.

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

Other FX acquisitions in the latest round include “Puss in Boots,” “Paranormal Activity 3” and “A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas.”
