THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE On DVD And Blu-ray
The truth is finally out there on DVD and Blu-ray! Twentieth Century Fox Home Ent. presents THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE, a gripping feature film based on the global phenomenon that descends onto DVD and Blu-ray on December 2. Marking the studio's first foray into BD-Live, THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE BD release takes full advantage of the high-def format's "web-enhanced" functionality with exclusive features, games, additional content and connectivity to other BD-Live users and X-FILES fans nationwide.
"THE X-FILES Dossier" allows BD-Live connected users to create their own Special Agent avatar that can browse through Agent Dakota Whitney's case files on clairvoyance and post their own notes and theories to her files online and download other profiles directly to their BD player memory files; plus fans can become an agent-in-training by helping Agent Drummy solve several forensic challenges (with new cases posted weekly to the studio supported BD-Live web portal for the first several weeks of release). Additional BD-exclusive features include picture-in-picture commentary with series creator Chris Carter and producer Frank Spotnitz along with THE X-FILES Complete Interactive Timeline on-screen track chronicling the entire series mythology.
Plus fans can also delve deeper than ever before with "The Ultimate X-Phile Edition" DVD and BD packed with over three hours of bonus features content including an unrated "Extended Cut" of the film with never-before-seen footage seamlessly branched back into the movie plus the all-new feature-length documentary "Trust No One" that reveals exciting secrets about THE X-FILES universe.
A standalone story picks up six years after the series ended, THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE finds Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) reunited after leaving their careers at the F.B.I. behind them. Forgotten by their former employer that ignored their unique investigations, the duo is called upon once again when several women begin to disappear and body parts turn up buried in the snow of the Virginia wilderness. With Mulder's steadfast belief in the paranormal and Scully's ever present skepticism, the investigation leads them to a shocking discovery that tests their faith and questions what is truly possible.
The film's plot had many scenes involving snowy winter storms and landscapes. Dealing with snow was particularly difficult because no two snowfalls are exactly the same. "We had to have believable snow in a bunch of shots that had to have continuity with shots that were practical snow," said vfx supervisor Mat Beck at Entity FX. "And then, overall, there had to be an evolution of the snow through certain scenes to kind of set an emotional tone. And so we had different kinds of snow and different levels of snow and different scenes in which snow had to be inserted. So we needed to generate some tools in house to give the capability to do it quickly."
