2-Disc set arrives on July 1st
Yesterday we revealed (pun intended) that Fox is planning a July 1st release of The X-Files - Revelations. We had learned that this would be a 2-DVD set containing 8 episodes and some extras, but we didn't have the details on what those contents would be. Now our retailer contacts have provided us with an update, which their received from Fox this morning:
Total running time is 352 minutes, and - as we said yesterday - the cost will be $22.98 SRP in the USA and CA$25.98 SRP in Canada. We theorized yesterday that the "theme" of this release might be the development of Mulder and Scully's relationship, but as a true-blue fan of the series, these aren't the episodes *I* would pick to demonstrate that theme. We also theorized that there would be "movie cash" included with this release, to get a free or cheap ticket into this summer's new theatrical X-Files film. That will indeed be on there, and it will also be attached for a while to all other DVD sets of The X-Files that have previously been released.
We're still waiting on package art, but stay tuned and we'll let you know when we get it! While you're waiting, you can pre-order this from DVDEmpire for $19.44 as of right now.
