Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny re-team to unravel a bizarre case right out of “The X-Files.” Amidst an eerily deceptive calm, F.B.I. agent Monica Bannan is abducted. Not only does the search for the missing woman ignite sparks between partners Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny), it defies the boundaries of science, the supernatural and the terrifying spaces in between! ...more
The truth is finally out there as Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents The X-Files: I Want To Believe on Blu-ray on Dec. 2nd, and M&C’s giving away five copies.
A standalone story described as a “skillful thriller” (Roger Ebert; Chicago Sun-Times) that picks up six years after the series ended, The X-Files: I Want To Believe finds Fox Mulder (David Duchovny; “Californication”) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson; The Last King of Scotland) reunited after leaving their careers at the F.B.I. behind them.
Forgotten by their former employer that ignored their unique investigations, the duo is called upon once again when several women begin to disappear and body parts turn up buried in the snow of the Virginia wilderness.
With Mulder’s steadfast belief in the paranormal and Scully’s ever present skepticism, the investigation leads them to a shocking discovery that tests their faith and questions what is truly possible.
Directed by series creator Chris Carter (“Millennium”) from a story he penned with executive producer Frank Spotnitz, The X-Files: I Want To Believe features an ensemble cast that includes Billy Connolly (The Boondock Saints), Amanda Peet (“Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip”), Xzibit (Gridiron Gang, 8 Mile) and the return of series veteran Mitch Pileggi as F.B.I Assistant Director Walter Skinner.
