Finally, the movie you’ve all been waiting for is coming home! Fox has announced a December 2nd release date for the new classic “>X-Files: I Want to Believe (review) on both standard and Blu-ray DVD!
All right, just a bit of sarcasm in there, sorry.
The Blu-ray version will be Fox’s first foray into BD-Live, which uses technology to connect to this series of tubes known as the internet to give fans access to exclusive games, features, and a ton of other goodies you can’t get offline. From the press release:
“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. “
That’s an awful lot of work to put into a movie so universally detested, but I guess they have to do something to make sure people get out and buy it, right? Click here to pre-order the DVD through Evilshop!
