What happened? You used to show up every week in my living room, and then, after a long, fading relationship, you disappeared. Then you showed up again -- this time on the big screen -- only to disappear in a matter of days. Were you in hiding, like a certain lanky former FBI agent whose name rhymes with "Box Culder"? Were you trying to slip away before anyone noticed you were back? If so, mission accomplished!
So how do old franchises that haven't been in the limelight in years but have a new film coming out woo their old audiences back for one more shot at box office success? If you're the studio behind The X-Files, you throw one slam-bang, pretty seriously awesome premiere. 20th Century Fox is hosting what they're calling a Fan Celebration at the world premiere screening of The X-Files: I Want to Believe on July 23rd at Grauman's Chinese Theatre.
