FX is adding another No. 1 summer opener to its movie lineup. The cable network has bought the exclusive TV rights to this weekend’s new entry, Fox’s Rise Of The Planet of The Apes, which is exceeding expectations and is now on track to gross $50 million. Additionally, FX has also acquired the critically praised Warner Bros. comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, which opened last weekend and is expected to gross about $42 million by Sunday. The pickups of Apes and Crazy, Stupid, Love join the recent FX acquisitions of Friends With Benefits, Horrible Bosses, Captain America: The First Avenger & Thor (both under FX’s 2008 output deal with Marvel), Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Bad Teacher, Green Lantern, The Hangover Part II, Rio, Super 8, X-Men: First Class, Just Go With It, The Green Hornet, Tron: Legacy, and Kung Fu Panda 2.
