Turner Broadcasting said Friday it has agreed to buy the premiere broadcast window for “The Matrix Reloaded” from Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution.

Turner also acquired rights to “A Lot Like Love,” “Miss Congeniality 2” and “Eight Legged Freaks.” The price tag was estimated at about $50 million.

For about a year Warner Bros. had been holding its movies, including the second and third parts of the “Matrix” trilogy, out of the market. But in recent months, it has made deals with networks including Oxygen, Nickelodeon and Speed Channel.
