20th Century Fox released a statement today saying that loyal X-Files fans, or "X-Philes" (and yes, I am one of them), will be given a special treat at the premiere of The X-Files: I Want to Believe at the Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood on July 23. 500 lucky fans will be given special credentials on a first-come first-serve basis to observe the red carpet arrivals, followed by the chance to participate in a press conference with the film's stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, and filmmakers Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz. I think I just heard Priceline's Web site crashing as hundreds of screaming devoted Philes try to book plane tickets.

On a stage at the front of the theater, the panelists will field questions from fans, which will also be broadcast live via a "special Internet site from which they can direct questions in real-time." Fans can squeal even further knowing that they will have a chance to "meet over 100 of the series' co-stars, guest-stars, and behind-the-scenes personnel, who have already committed to attending the celebration."

Get in line now - there's gonna be a lot of fans vying for those credentials, which will be handed out at 4 pm/PT, with festivities beginning at 6 pm/PT - I have a feeling Hollywood Blvd. is gonna turn into tent city very shortly.
