The truth is out there
again, as Chris Carter, David Duchovny, and Gillian Anderson reunite
to reopen The X-Files: I Want to Believe, the highly
anticipated film sequel of the long running sci-fi drama from
FOX, picking up where the finale left off six years ago.
I Want To Believe finds Mulder and Scully being called
for help by FBI Agent Mosley Drummy (Alvin "Xzibit"
Joiner) and ASAC Dakota Whitney (Amanda Peet) to find a missing
agent in exchange for the charges against Mulder being dropped.
The investigation leads to Father Joseph (Billy Connolly), who
claims that he has psychic visions. But as the case progresses
and the darkness continues to endure, both Mulder and Scully are
each going through personal struggles of beliefs for three things:
the belief of science and religion, the belief of the truth, and
the belief of each other.
Carter, both creator and executive produer of the series, also
co-produced, co-wrote, and directed the film, which is a more
standalone film rather than being part of the series' mythology
that is both complicated and confusing.
Still, I Want to Believe is a labor of love because this
is a film for devoted and dedicated fans who've been watching
X-Files either since day one in 1993, through reruns in syndication,
or watching all nine seasons on DVD. It has everything the series
has been known for: action/adventure, mystery/suspense, drama,
horror, humor, heart, and more. But the real key factor is the
eternal chemistry between Duchovny and Anderson, whose onscreen
sexual tension has been written with such intelligence, maturity,
and humility. It is also the returning story of Mulder being the
believer once more and Scully once again the skeptic.
Unlock the truth once more, with The X-Files: I Want to Believe,
