The Truth Is Out There

X Files Fight the Future DVD coverI want to believe.  Don’t you?  The new X-Files movie is opening in theaters tomorrow, and now is a great time to re-visit the first feature-length production of the series, The X-Files: Fight the Future.  Featuring intrepid FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) in their search for the truth, this 1998 Twentieth Century Fox Film traces a government conspiracy from desert cornfields to remote Antarctica.  Just under the surface of a seemingly innocuous Texas town, a strange black substance seeps closer to the population.  Add a federal bomb threat, a paranoid doctor, and genetically-engineered bees, and once again the agents must risk their credibility and their lives to explain the inexplicable.  Co-written by series creator Chris Carter and directed by Rob Bowman, Fight the Future also includes notable performances by Martin Landau, Blythe Danner, Armin Mueller-Stahl, and Lost‘s Terry O’Quinn.
