The Mulder-Scully fans are out there

X-Files fans are not all alike, except for one thing: They cannot wait — pant, pant — for The X-Files: I Want to Believe to open Friday. And never mind The Dark Knight, which is still sucking up considerable box-office oxygen. "We don't need to beat Batman, we just need to get and please an audience," says writer/producer Frank Spotnitz. "We want the fans to be happy and feel rewarded. It really feels like this movie was made because of the hard-core fans and to some extent for them." A unique aspect of The X-Files phenomenon is the mutual admiration between fans and filmmakers. ... [Continua a leggere]

Mulder, Scully on new 'X-Files' film

MSNBC: David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reunites as Mulder and Scully in The X-Files, I Want to Believe, but returning to the characters they played for 9 years, was a challenge. GA: It was more of originally thinking that it would be so easy, then experiencing that it wasn’t so easy…DD: Also originally thinking we were going to be in the same environment as we left. In fact the movie starts us at a different environment and starts us in a different place in our relationship, so we had to figure out how to get back to the people we were, but also to honor this new phase of the ...

*clips from movie*CC: FOX had come to us a year after the TV series ended, they said, "let's do another movie." And we came up with the story, they said great, then we started negotiating with the contracts, they... Everything's working, then all a sudden it came to a grinding halt because there were business problem with television show and contract, going backward, that ended up taking years to resolve, that's simply why we are doing it now.*clips from movie*GA: Time is different for different people and for me the six years actually went by very very quickly, and it felt like when we actual ...

Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz Interview - THE X-FILES: I Want to Believe

As most of you know, opening this Friday is “The X-Files: I Want to Believe.” Since I’m under embargo….I can’t write anything on the film or even what the movies about. Sorry. That being said, I can post what Fox supplied me…In grand The X-Files tradition, the film's storyline is being kept under wraps, known only to top studio brass and the project's principal actors and filmmakers. This much can be revealed: The supernatural thriller is a stand-alone story in the tradition of some of the show's most acclaimed and beloved episodes, and takes the alwa ... [Continua a leggere]

'X-Files' looking for truth, audience

Psst, the truth is over here. It's tough to find, but in Vancouver, British Columbia, on the P.N.E. Fairgrounds, beyond a roller coaster, past the movie-star trailers and craft-services tent, and on a set designed to resemble a California bungalow, The X-Files is flickering back to life. It's here that the revered TV show's key players -- stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, director Chris Carter and producer Frank Spotnitz -- are reuniting for The X-Files: I Want To Believe. The film, opening Friday, is the second X-Files feature, after The X-Files: Fight the Future (1998), a ... [Continua a leggere]

X Files, i cimeli della serie allo Smithsonian American History Museum di Washington

Siete fan di X Files e volete vedere i cimeli della vostra serie preferita? Beh, dall’altro ieri potete farlo, visto che alcuni ‘reperti’ della serie cult sono entrati nella collezione dello Smithsonian American History Museum di Washington.

A donare al museo alcuni gadget e diverse foto dal set è stato il creatore di X Files, Chris Carter, che (malpensiamo) ha approfittato dell’occasione per pubblicizzare il film, “X Files – I want to Believe“, in uscita nei cinema americani il 25 luglio. Allo Smithsonian, tornando a noi, sarà inaugurata una sezione dedicata alla serie, che sarà possibile visitare in autunno: tra i cimeli, una sceneggiatura originale, una statua aliena, una collana di Scully, lo stiletto usato per uccidere gli alieni ‘travestiti’, il poster origina ...

The X-Files Makes History

The longrunning science fiction television phenomenon The X-Files will reappear after a six-year hiatus in a second film to be released in theaters next week. But the show that brought to life Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully and added "The Truth Is out There" and "I Want to Believe" to pop lexicon is also finally showing its age. This morning X-Files director/writer/producer Chris Carter was at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to present a series of items from the show to be placed on exhibit when the museum reopens this fall. The items signed over to the Smiths ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files Artifacts at the Smithsonian

The setting was almost too perfect. In order to get to the ceremony for the donation of X-Files artifacts and memorabilia I had to go into the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of American History through the "staff health center" entrance inside the parking lot and be escorted to the event by an intern who took me through eerily empty exhibition halls, all the items disassembled and covered with plastic sheets. What would Mulder and Scully say? Is the truth out there? The museum is closed to the public for renovations (or so they say...) but the donation of this important collection w ...

5 Questions with Chris Carter

Fans have really been waiting for this movie. Are you surprised that they’re still interested?Yes… I think the reason we made the movie was because we felt that enthusiasm from the fan base. That being said, I think for this movie to be as successful as Fox would like, we needed to make it a movie that would appeal beyond our fan base, to a broader base, and even to a group of people who didn’t what The X-Files before. I would talk with college juniors, sophomores, freshmen—they were too young to see the show when it was on the air. It started 15 years ago. So, yeah, w ... [Continua a leggere]

Is the Truth Still Out There?

Six Years after leaving the air, The X-Files returns with a new movie – and the set hold more secrets than Area 51.

The van ride to the Vancouver set of “The X-Files: I Want to Believe” feels a lot like what approaching Area 51 must feel like. A mystery awaits, although you’re not at all sure what kind of clues you’ll actually find.The production assistant behind the wheel is perfectly friendly, talking about the weather (cold), the city (growing), and the best place for Chinese food (pretty much anywhere). But when the conversation takes a turn into X-Files territory, he quickly tucks today’s production schedule into his jacket and offers up more news about the weather.Back du ... [Continua a leggere]

Chris Carter gets all foxy about 'The X-Files'

When facing questions about the film, the writer-director turns into one of his own mystery men.

CHRIS CARTER is not the sort of guy you'd expect to produce shadowy stories about government conspiracies and alien invasions. Even as he's hard at work finishing "The X-Files: I Want to Believe" -- a new feature film based on the landmark science-fiction franchise he masterminded in the 1990s -- he's the embodiment of a relaxed California surfer, thoughtful and easygoing rather than tense and paranoid. The deadline to deliver his cut of the film to the studio is looming, but inside a cozy Malibu residence, he's calm and deliberate, watching scenes with a critical eye and decisively di ...

FT interviews X-Files creators

Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz talk to Mark Pilkington about The X Files: I Want to Believe. Beware spoilers!

After six years of silence, Mulder and Scully are back – and, as a result, I got the chance to discuss their new cinematic outing with writers Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz. A thoughtful, friendly pair – and if you squinted a bit and tilted your head to one side, they could almost be surf-bronzed, Californian versions of our own Bob Rickard and Paul Sieveking… FT: What was the impetus to get away from extraterrestrials for the new film? Frank Spotnitz: We knew from the beginning that we wanted to do a movie like most of the episodes of the show, which had nothing t ... [Continua a leggere]
