'Avatar' Goes to FX in Mid 2012


'Avatar' Goes to FX in Mid 2012


The network which has acquired the rights to 'Twilight' and its sequels, has got the hook on the possible highest grossing movie of all time.

On the run to be the second highest grossing movie of all time, "Avatar" is coming to smaller screen via FX. The cable network has officially acquired the broadcasting right from sister company 20th Century FOX after winning the bid on Thursday, January 7.

No financial detail is released but according to Los Angeles Times, FX has to fork out around $25 million. Director James Cameron also reportedly has a say in determining which TV stations will get to broadcast its TV premiere. FX aims to air it mid 2012 and there is a possibility that it would be in 3D since the network has accumulated a plan to have a 3D viewing.

"Avatar" managed to gross over a billion in the course of 20 days. Its worldwide income is set to surpass "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King" which grossed $1.1 billion upon release in 2003. The highest record is still held by "Titanic", another film by James Cameron, with $1.8 billion.

On related news, film's star Zoe Saldana spilled that there's actually a sex scene cut to protect the PG-13 rating. "It was a very funny scene to shoot because there were so many technical things that sometimes you have to keep in mind that paying attention to all those might disrupt the fluidity of how a scene is supposed to take place," she said.
