Jun 16, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Within hours of setting a record for the biggest box office opening in movie history, “Jurassic World” has found a TV home.

Variety reports that the movie will head to FX, where other blockbusters including “Furious 7” also have TV deals. FX landed exclusive U.S. premiere TV rights to “Jurassic World,” which stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

“Jurassic World” tallied an opening weekend of $208.8 million in the U.S., eclipsing the previous mark of $207.4 million set by “Marvel’s the Avengers” in 2012, the report notes.

FX has made a habit of snapping up big box-office features.

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