People have gone missing in the Badlands for centuries. Now, a fresh spate of disappearances is linked to the possible serial killer “Dante,” who claims he is inspired by demons from hell.

The X-Files: I Want to Believe Cut to the Truth

“I’m done chasing monsters in the dark.” That’s former FBI agent Dana Scully speaking in the trailer for the new franchise feature film The X-Files: I Want to Believe, pretty much guaranteeing an imminent run of chasing, monsters, and darkness. But until very recently, the words might just as easily have been spoken by X-Files series creator Chris Carter. It’s been six years since the last X-Files TV show aired, ten since Fight the Future, the first X-Files movie opened. And according to Carter himself, the search for the Truth very nearly stopped there. & ... [Continua a leggere]

'X' marks the spot for TV's odd couple

Leaving past controversies behind them, 'X Files' stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson unveil some new weird science

It's not often that a motion picture from a TV series gets a sequel — but that's what's happened with the cult series "The X Files," which made international stars of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson and morphed millions of sci-fi fans into a new identity as X Philes. "The X Files" aired in the U.S. from Sept. 1993 until May 2002 and was syndicated across the world, picking up several Emmys and Golden Globes along the way. It centered on the investigations of FBI agents Fox Mulder (Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Anderson), who tackled marginalized cases involving paranorma ... [Continua a leggere]

‘X-Files’ Producer/Director Frank Spotnitz Makes The Mythology Matter In New Wildstorm Comic Series

X-Files comic books — in the ’90s, four color tales of Agents Scully and Mulder heated up the comics charts and nabbed scores of cash on the back issue market before the comics industry and publisher, Topps, took a turn for the worse…along with the whole “X-Files” franchise. Now in November, DC’s Wildstorm imprint looks to reignite the series’ comic popularity with a miniseries featuring something the ’90s comics never had: a direct tie to the show’s overarching mythos. “They are connected with a part of the mythology that we introd ...

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny - Belgium TV Promo

DD: This show I'm proud of. I think it's got, overall, if we did 203, and I think we did, there are over 100 that I think are really really good, and almost movie-worthy, so I'm stunned by that quality of writing and execution, still.CC: I remember the first day, in Mulder's office, we were filming that. You saw that these two very strong people. When people talk about the chemistry, I think sometimes that is a misconception.

'X - Files: voglio crederci', di Chris Carter

Il film si discosta nettamente dalla trama extraterrestre che aveva caratterizzato alcuni episodi televisivi, per puntare invece su una storia che ha un inizio e una fine (prerogativa che d'altronde riguardava la quasi totalitá delle puntate). Elemento positivo questo, perché aiuta a dare compattezza ad un lungometraggio che rischia di perdersi nelle proprie spirali narrative.

Secondo capitolo per il grande schermo di una delle serie televisive più appassionanti di sempre: X-Files è stato fonte di ispirazione per gli altri telefilm - CSI, Lost e la lista potrebbe continuare - che si sono succeduti nel tempo dai chiari rimandi cinematografici (una certa ricercatezza formale delle inquadrature, il montaggio, la struttura narrativa). Per questo progetto al timone della regia si è messo lo stesso ideatore della coppia di agenti dell'FBI più famosa della tv, quel Chris Carter che in seguito porterà sul piccolo schermo un'altra serie tel ...

REFLECTIONS: Frank Spotnitz

From the show's second season, Frank Spotnitz's name has been synonymous with "The X-Files." Spotnitz wrote some of the most loved episodes of the series -- including "Field Trip" -- and with show creator Chris Carter, Spotnitz has developed much of the show's mythology and written both X-Files feature films. Now Spotnitz is hard at work in the X-Files universe once again, penning Wildstorm's spin-off comic book based on the television series. Illustrated by Brian Denham, "The X-Files" takes place roughly between the second and fifth seasons of the show, stars many classic characters an ... [Continua a leggere]
