|.||"The X-Files" - is the 1998 movie patterned
after the TV series. Special agents Mulder and Scully center their attention
on the bombing of a Dallas Office building.
It all relates back to an encounter with a nonhuman 15,000 year BC which is related to the present day with a boy and several firefighters in an underground cave. Yep, they better come up with a plan fast. Then there is the secret role of FEMA, all those bees, the cornfield, and the antarctic ice.
Series Regulars - This movie serves as a culmination of the TV series' season. You will recognize many of your favorite TV actors from the successful five year TV series. Cancer Man William Davis makes a token appearance. Series regular Mitch Pileggis is the FBI Director Walter Skinner. There is well manicured John Neville. The Lone Gunmen - Dean Haglund, Bruce Harwood, Tom Braidwood - make a cameo appearance. Martin Landau shows up in a bar and Mueller-Stahl is the German ringleader.
Numbers - As X-Files followers of the TV series know, the recurring numbers
10-13 is the birthday of Chris CarterBudget - An estimated $60 - 66 million movie production budget with an estimated $25 million marketing budget.
Opening Box Office Weekend 19-21 June - The X-Files opening weekend was $31.1 mil which easily placed it first for the weekend based on figures available Monday 22 June.
Related Items - That's right, this movie has two separate CDs.
One is called the "X-Files Fight The Future Score" by Mark Snow and the
other is "X-Files The Album" by various artists. I am listing Amazon.com
here because at least one other major on-line CD retailer had confusing
titles/soundtracks/cover art which did not match. Amazon.com seems to have
them listed correctly.
