Official Release from 20th Century Fox:
THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE CELEBRATES FANS AT FILM’S PREMIERE, JULY 23, AT GRAUMAN’S CHINESE THEATRE
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 Hollywood landmark, where they can observe the red-carpet arrivals – and participate in a special conference with the film’s stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, plus writer-producer-director Chris Carter and writer-producer Frank Spotnitz. Situated on a stage in front of the theater, the four filmmakers will field questions from the fans, prior to fulfilling their more traditional duties with the press. (Seating will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Special credentials will be distributed at 4:00 p.m. to the first 500 fans that arrive that day. The festivities will begin at 6:00 p.m.).
X-Philes around the globe will experience the gala event live, via a special internet site from which they can direct questions in real-time to the film’s cast and filmmakers. This worldwide community of fans will also meet over 100 of the series’ co-stars, guest stars, and behind-the-scenes personnel, who have already committed to attending the Celebration.
