Not surprisingly, there were a lot of X-Files questions.
NBC's Hannibal just got interesting. The small screen adaptation has snagged a member of The X-Files, who'll spend some time with the ultimate serial-killer—Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
Will Fox Mulder and Dana Scully ever team up on the big screen again? The last X-Files flick cast doubt over the future of the franchise, but earlier this month David Duchovny said there's always a chance. Now it seems his former co-star Gillian Anderson also wants to believe.
The show may have ended more than a decade ago, but Fox's former series The X-Files continues to inform modern sci-fi to this day—and the catchphrase "The Truth Is Out There" remains a true geek mantra. But what about Agent Scully's (Gillian Anderson) favorite exclamation?
It was a decade ago last night that the final episode of Chris Carter's conspiracy-laden sci-fi cult classic hit the air so it seemed like a perfectly fitting time to look back on the cast and see what they've been up to since the truth stopped being out there.
With the 2008 X-Files movie I Want to Believe a critical and commercial dud, you couldn't blame actress Gillian Anderson (FBI Agent Dana Scully) if she wanted to hang up her gun and badge for the successful period drama career she's carved out over the past decade. But, it turns out she may still have some fight left in her to take on a few more aliens and government conspiracies.
There's no doubt David "Mulder" Duchovny and Gillian "Scully" Anderson made the perfect pair of alien-hunting feds on The X-Files, but that doesn't mean they didn't need a little tweaking. You never see it on screen, but to compensate for Anderson's small stature, the show's crew devised a very simple method to keep her on par with Duchovny: the "Scully Box."
Almost as fast as the prospect surfaced of a third X-Files flick—likely following Agents Mulder and Scully on the hunt for more alien conspiracies—comes the totality of what the erstwhile Dana Scully actually said to an Australian journalist. And the truth is not pretty.
The truth is out there—but does anyone truly care? Actress Gillian Anderson claims a new X-Files movie is on the horizon. But are...
What we loved about The X-Files was that each episode was different, delivering a different monster, a different mystery, a different scare. But if we're being honest, we've also got to admit that every episode of The X-Files ... was the SAME.
