The network continues to add top box office performers to its slate.

FX has snagged the commercial television premiere rights to a handful of recent big-screen releases.

Captain America: The First Avenger, as part of a deal with Marvel that closed in 2008; Friends With Benefits; and Horrible Bosses will all air on FX.

Captain America, starring Chris Evans as the title character, topped the weekend domestic box office with $65.8 million, in line with Chris Hemsworth's Thor, which took in $65.7 million in its debut.

Friends With Benefits, on the other hand, came in at No. 3, opening to $18.5 million -- just behind the similarly-themed No Strings Attached released earlier this year.
