Smithsonian Wants to Believe!

National Museum of American History Acquires X-Files Collection

During a special ceremony today, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History received a collection of objects from “The X-Files,” the television series and movie franchise. Twentieth Century Fox together with Chris Carter, series and film writer, director and producer, and Frank Spotnitz, series and film director and producer, presented an annotated script from the series’ pilot episode, FBI badges, posters and other objects to the museum’s entertainment collections. “The X-Files” series quickly became one of the most popular scienc ...

David Duchovny: 'The X-Files' is equal to God

These days, every major genre film and hit show has a significant presence on the Internet, but that wasn’t the case when "The X-Files" became a spooky sensation in the 1990s. David Duchovny said that, like his character Fox Mulder, the relentless faith of true believers is astounding to behold. " 'The X-Files' was said to be the first Internet show," Duchovny said over coffee on a recent morning in Los Angeles. "We had chat rooms and fan sites and all that. Look, I’m usually five or six years behind whatever is hip. So it was around 2000 that I started doing e-mail and f ... [Continua a leggere]


LOS ANGELES…They’ve long wanted to believe…and now the truth – and a new The X-Files movie – is finally out there for the legions of fans eagerly awaiting the debut of the next feature film based on the legendary television series. To honor these “X-Philes” (as the enthusiasts are known), Twentieth Century Fox is hosting a Fan Celebration at the world premiere screening of THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE on July 23 at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. The studio is inviting X-Philes to gather that day in specially-built seating in front of the ... [Continua a leggere]


The “X-Files” producer reveals why the movie nearly didn’t happen

It was January 2007, and I was about to give up hope.It was six ears since 20th Century Fox called, asking if we were interested in doing another X-Files feature film. Five years since the television series went off the air. And four years since creator Chris Carter and I labored over the story for the new movie and pitched it to the studio.That was back in 2003. Since then, I had negotiated a deal to cowrite and coproduced the movie, and waited for David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson to close their deals—only to have the whole process derailed when Chris and the studio got into a legal ...

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]

X marks the spot

DAVID Duchovny has a bit of a reputation when it comes to being interviewed. Words that fly around are "moody", "irritable", "difficult", "great when he's having a good day" and "keeps you on your toes".

So it’s with trepidation that I wait for him to turn up. I entertain myself by wondering if he’ll be an older-looking Fox Mulder, the clean-cut FBI agent with boyish good looks he played in the hit TV series The X-Files for nine years, or the dishevelled, complex, jaded writer Hank Moody; his character in his current hit TV series Californication. When he finally arrives - 20 minutes late - Duchovny looks like a regular kind of guy; he oozes "casual" in his grey, long-sleeved T-shirt, blue jeans and combed-back hair. I soon discover he has the same dry, laconic sense of ... [Continua a leggere]

David Duchovny on the return of The X Files

All that Californicating seems to have left David Duchovny happy to return to The X Files, says JEFF DAWSON

Deep in the bowels of a disused mental institution, a cadre of nuns shuffles down the corridor. This crumbling Victorian edifice on the outskirts of Vancouver - atmospherically chilled and, at 3am, Exorcist-eerie - has been dressed as the Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Hospital, a key night-shoot location for the film The X-Files: I Want to Believe. “They’re not real nuns. I hope not,” quips David Duchovny, who is reprising his role as the FBI agent Fox Mulder. The wry grin says it all. Recently, before being pressed back into service in this new, feature-length spin-o ... [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 ...

Star-crossed LOVERS

The X-Files wasn't just for geeks and nerds. Its slow-burn romance had a broader audience hanging onevery longing look and loaded exchange. Pip Christmass previews the upcoming movie.

When it comes to sci-fi fandom, Star Trek may have first dibs on the world’s most obsessive devotees, but X-Files fanatics aren’t too far behind. Conventions, fan-written fiction, internet forums: you name it, the “X-Philes” were into it. But don’t think this cult-status series, which ran for 10 years between 1992 and 2002, was only for spotty sci-fi geeks and bookish nerds. Cool rock stars loved it too. Self-confessed X-Phile, The Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl, penned the theme song for the first X-Files feature film Fight the Future; in 1998, Welsh indie ba ... [Continua a leggere]

The Hot Seat - David Duchovny

The truth is out there—but Duchovny’s not telling.

Surprise! David Duchovny is returning as Agent Fox Mulder in The X-Files: I Want to Believe, the second film spin-off of the FBI-meets-aliens TV hit. Maddeningly, that “no, duh!” information seems to be the only tidbit the deadpan 47-year-old—or anyone else—will reveal about the movie, whose “secret” has somehow yet to surface on the Internet. Duchovny, a native New Yorker who is married to actor Téa Leoni, is less tight-lipped about his Golden Globe–garnering role as a horndog novelist on Showtime’s Californication (which he also exe ...

'X-Files': Sneak Peek at New Comic Book!

As we wait for the new movie to open, presents an exclusive preview of ''The X-Files #0,'' Frank Spotnitz's illustrated take on the supernatural show

The truth? It'll be out there in theaters when The X-Files: I Want to Believe opens July 25. But thanks to Frank Spotnitz, the franchise's coproducer and cowriter, it'll also be available in comic-book form two days earlier, when DC's The X-Files #0 hits stores. While the film takes place after the TV series' end, Spotnitz's title (illustrated by Iron Man: Hypervelocity's Brian Denham) is fully ensconced in buzzy season 5, with Special Agent Dana Scully's cancer in attack mode, and her FBI partner, Fox Mulder, initially on the lam, probing Scully's illness as well as surreptitious al ...

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]

Reopening 'The X-Files'

BoxOffice - Luglio 2008 - Cover

10 years after the first film earned $189.2 million worldwide, the team behind The X-Files returns to theatres.

On The X-Files, whenever FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder wanted to talk to his secret informant, he had to use a couple strips of tape to make the mysterious man’s namesake letter, X, in the window of his apartment and hope for a prompt response. It is not that hard to get a hold of X-Files creator Chris Carter—a couple calls to the appropriate publicists will do the trick. But it is hard—downright impossible, in fact—to get the writer/director/producer to reveal the super-secret plot of this summer’s The X Files: I Want to Believe, which will reunite the embattled- ...

Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, Chris Carter - HBO

CC: The motivation really was the hardcore, die hard fans, who are saying, “when are you doing the movie? When are you doing the movie?” We've carrying these drumbeats out there. We felt it, and people have taken out ads, billboards, and we felt it on the internet. HBO: According to the film’s stars, it was a teary reunion with Chris.DD: When we started reading Mulder and Scully, we looked over. He’s got these bright blue eyes and they just started tearing up.GA: Yeah.DD: I think we were both embarrassed.GA: No, we weren’t.HBO: David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson ... [Continua a leggere]
