With Spider-Man 3 making hand over fist at the theaters, Sony has already found a way to make a little more by selling the rights to the film for television. After a fierce bidding war, FX was the network to come out on top.

The finalized fee between Sony and FX won't be decided until the film closes out in domestic theaters. If the film is able to gross $400 million or more in US theaters, than FX will have to pony up $33 million for rights to the film for a five-year window. To help make even more skrilla, Sony has given itself three separate windows within the FX window to sell the picture to one or more other networks -- something that could earn the film another $7 to $10 million. Lots and lots of money. Capiche?

The purchase of Spider-Man 3 fits into FX's recent formula of purchasing action-oriented theatrical releases. These types of films pull in the best demo for advertisers.

FX will be able to start airing Spider-Man 3 in 2009.

Spider-Man 3 will join FX's expanding library of films including Night at the Museum, X-Men: The Last Stand, The Departed, Superman Returns and Click.

Spider-Man 3 is out in theatres now.
