FX Network to Screen 'Monsters vs. Aliens' and Others on TV


'Monsters vs. Aliens' that came number 1 on box office over the weekend will be screened on FX Network along with 'Kung Fu Panda', 'Shrek Goes Fourth' and others.

Some DreamWorks Animation productions will get a second round of screening on TV. FX Channel have secured the rights to rerun some of the animated movies such as the recent box office champ "Monsters Vs. Aliens" and older ones like "Kung Fu Panda", "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" and "Shrek Goes Fourth".

"Every year, DreamWorks Animation produces some of the finest films made by any studio and were incredibly excited to strengthen and broaden the FX library with the addition of their titles through 2012," said FX executive vice president Chuck Saftler in a statement. With the deal that was granted by distributor Paramount Pictures, FX become the first non-pay cable TV to have the rights for the first TV premiere.

FX have been running feature films since 2008 and the contract will allow them to continue until 2012. Last month, the channel have also pocketed the rights to screen other box office movies such as "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", "You Don't Mess with the Zohan", "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk". They have even secured the upcoming sequel of "Transformers", "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" that will only hit U.S. theaters on June 24.
