Myth Maker

We sent Cult Times’ best agents to try to get the truth out of Chris “Conspiracy” Carter once and for all

Chris Carter, The X-Files executive producer, leans back in his chair as he discusses his hit series and the new feature film that has resulted from its success. “I had a three day surfing weekend and I was thinking about what it is as a surfer that I bring to my occupation.” Carter, a long-time surfer who spent over a decade earlier in his career as an editor and writer at Surfing magazine, certainly looks the part, given his relaxed, laid-back manner and his casual dress consisting of jeans and a T-shirt. “I think, for me, it’s a minimalist sort of self ...

“Non mi vedrete nudo”

Dal film sono state tagliate le scene dove David Duchovny mostrava il posteriore. E lui, sardonico, ribatte: “Vorrei diventare puro spirito, fare yoga 24 ore al giorno”.

Il cognome, di origine russa, significa “spirituale”. E David Duchovny, sex-symbol a cui sono stati dedicati siti internet di pura ispirazione carnale (Brigata del testosterone, Brigata dell’estrogeno, Pagina di libidine…), sostiene che il nome gli si addice. “Vorrei diventare puro spirito, fare yoga 24 ore al giorno. Lo yoga che pratico non mi basta mai”. In carne e ossa, comunque, al nostro incontro in un albergo di Londra, pare tutt’altro che etereo, dimostra sardonico umorismo newyorkese e realismo pragmatico. Non soffre paranoia. Non si lamenta: ... [Continua a leggere]

X-files – Il complotto continua

Usciti dritti dal telefilm che ha conquistato in tutto il monto decine di milioni di fan, gli agenti dell’Fbi Fox Mulder e Dana Scully continuano sul grande schermo, complici gli effetti speciali, le loro indagini impossibili. Per introdurre la visione, “Sorrisi” ha stilato un rapido elenco delle analogie e delle differenze tra la serie e il prodotto cinematografico.

Finalmente sono tornati. Tosti. Intrepidi. Irriducibili. I cavalieri dell’investigazione impossibile, gli sfegatati cacciatori di complotti e alieni sono ancora tra noi. Stavolta, però, smesse le dimensioni dell’elettrodomestico casalingo, i due agenti dell’Fbi Mulder e Scully ci guardano perplessi dall’alto degli schermi giganti dei cinema di prima visione. Uscito negli Stati Uniti lo scorso giugno (quasi sessanta miliardi di lire incassati nel primo week end), il film tratto dalla serie-culto “X-Files”, scritto e prodotto dall’ideatore del tel ...

Mark Snow: The X-Files

Andrián Pertout speaks with Mark Snow from Los Angeles about life as a screen composer, and the soundtrack to the ‘Fight the Future’ X-Files movie.

Composer and seven-time Emmy nominee Mark Snow’s musical genesis was officially initiated in Brooklyn in his early teens, and with the dual blessing of pianist mother and drummer father, the career of one of film music’s great inspirational forces of the 90s was set in motion.  He began as a piano student, and in his early development also embraced the art drumming, although in the years that followed the oboe became his principal artistic voice, and Mark went on to explore its expressive boundaries through performances in Baroque and Renaissance music concerts.  It was a ...

Agent provocative

He’s loved by millions, gets paid millions and stars in a hugely successful TV series. So why is David Duchovny so annoyed by his co-star’s pay dispute? He tells Libby Brooks about his poetry, the X-Files movie and his dream of bringing the World Cup back to Scotland

He looks a lot like Mulder. There is the same air of wearied naughtiness. But the familiar face, free from the softening broodiness of his X-Files persona, morphs from wounded pup to bond-broker bastard. In exquisitely tailored midnight blue, he is less the visionary canker and more the acquaintance of American Psycho’s socialite psychopath, Patrick Bateman. At 38, Duchovny is a big star on the small screen, a Hollywood bankable yet to prove his mettle in movies. Internationally identifiable as his wry, doubting alter ego Fox Mulder, the completion of the first X-Files f ... [Continua a leggere]

X-tra! X-tra! Carter explores new season

HOLLYWOOD — It is, in every respect, a typical Fox network party. The music is a little too loud, the drinks are probably flowing a little too freely, and inside the Garden of Eden club off Hollywood Boulevard, Brian Austin Green of “Beverly Hills, 90210″ is under siege from TV critics and industry types, while nearby a knot of reporters tightens around his diminutive boss, Aaron Spelling. Even the Internet’s rumpled “citizen reporter,” Matt Drudge, is there, courtesy of a pundit gig he’s landed with Fox News. It is not exactly the kind o ... [Continua a leggere]

Chris Carter having a splash with ‘X-Files’

LOS ANGELES (CNN) — Chris Carter is riding an amazing wave. The creator of “The X-Files” has watched as his Fox television show has transcended its rocky start and turned into the “Star Trek” of the 1990s, developing a cultish following highlighted by the release of his “The X-Files” movie this summer. All the while, Carter has been hailed as a creative visionary, and a pretty good surfer, as well. Showbiz Today Correspondent Paul Vercammen caught up with Carter in Los Angeles recently, where the two spoke about wave-riding, writing, and ... [Continua a leggere]

Man behind The X-Files exhibits same stoic calm as his characters

In The X-Files movie, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully get attacked by bees, bad guys and some serious bio-hazards, but their voices rarely rise above the pitch of faraway freeway traffic. They must get it from their boss, creator and principal writer of The X-Files, Chris Carter. On the phone, Carter sounds as implacable as his stoic main characters. That’s quite a feat, as The X-Files movie was a gamble in many respects, and as dicey a deal as the television show ever was. (It’s made a respectable $55 million to date.) The film takes off from the fifth season’s fina ... [Continua a leggere]

The Truth Is Out There

At a Theater Near You

There's a scene in the big-screen version of the television show The X-Files when Fox Mulder (David Duchovny), the good-looking FBI agent with a permanent case of the heebie-jeebies, steps into a back alley, unzips and pisses on a peeling, crusted poster for Independence Day. Independence Day earned a lot of money for Fox, the same studio that produced The X-Files, but its creative team of producer Dean Devlin and director Roland Emmerich made their next movie with Sony (a little something called Godzilla), which helps to explain Mulder's target. He - and the movie's makers - needn't h ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files Director Rob Bowman Talks with Mania

It almost sounds like a cruel joke. Take one of the most successful television series currently on air, that the faithful have tuned in, turned on and deconstructed every bit of its five-year way, and now successfully move it to the big screen — movies, theater takes, box office draws, film festivals, Oscars… No pressure. Your past resume? Directed a bunch of Star Trek:TNG and the 1993 movie Airborne, its greatest claim to fame being that it starred Buffy’s Seth Green. Oh yeah, and 25 episodes of the aforementioned TV series, The X-Files. Rob Bowman is the rec ... [Continua a leggere]

Interview with Gillian Anderson

Scully speaks! All right, Gillian Anderson speaks, which in our estimation is every bit as good. Defying TV stereotypes, Anderson — by her own account neither leggy nor chesty and not given to the wearing of skimpy apparel — has become the thinking fan's sex symbol and costar of what may be the most hotly anticipated movie of the summer (forget about that big iguana!). Rumors about the X-Files movie are flying thick and fast (which is, of course, only as it should be), but TVGEN has the actress's own words on such weighty topics as hair delinquency, icky stuff and the smooch that launched a thousand e-mails.

SHEP: How does the X-Files movie balance the expectations of die-hard fans and the need to explain stuff for moviegoers who haven't been following the show since day one? GILLIAN: That was one of the challenges that Chris [Carter, series creator] had from the beginning, to create a movie that did not talk down to our existing audience and also one that was watchable and enjoyable to people that had never seen the show before.That's something I really feel that he has done with this movie. I think that it'll be incredibly exciting for avid fans of the show who know every last de ... [Continua a leggere]

TVgen Chat with David Duchvony

What's the toughest part of bringing a successful show like The X-Files to the big screen? I think the challenge for everybody was how do we make this satisfying for the fans, who are numerous, and for the nonfans, who are numerous also? And I sat down and I actually was talking to Téa when we were doing the film, and I had this thought, which was — the people who aren't fans of the show, they are not just not fans of the show. They are actively not fans of the show because we've been doing the show for fi ... [Continua a leggere]
