FX has nabbed another movie that opened No. 1 at the box office: this past weekend’s top performer Act Of Valor. Picking up the Relativity-distributed Navy SEAL actioner, which grossed a healthy $25.5 million for the three-day weekend, seems like a no-brainer for the male-skewing FX. Eight weeks into 2012, FX has acquired the commercial TV rights to six No. 1 movies this year: Act Of Valor, Safe House (Universal), The Vow (Sony/Screen Gems), Chronicle (Fox), Underworld Awakening (Sony/Screen Gems) and Contraband (Universal). Additionally, FX, the most agressive movie buyer among the basic cable networks, has picked up a slew of other 2012 titles that have had mixed performances: This Means War and Red Tails (Fox), Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance (Sony), Wanderlust (Universal), and The Immortals (Relativity).
