FX acquires right to air latest ‘Transformers’ film

FX has acquired commercial TV rights to Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Released on June 29, the franchise’s third film took the weekend’s No. 1 box office spot and was the highest-grossing movie ever for the Fourth of July weekend.

“Dark of the Moon” is set to earn $181.1 million through Monday from North American box offices, but globally, the total more than doubles to $398.1 million in the film’s six-day debut.

Though the film, starring Shia LaBeouf, performed behind “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” domestically, “Dark of the Moon” was well ahead of the previous iteration internationally.

FX expects to air the film in late 2013 or early 2014.

The latest move follows in FX’s recent acquisitions of top box-office performers, including “Super 8,” “Bad Teacher,” “Green Lantern,” “The Hangover Part II,” “X-Men: First Class” and “Thor.”
