20th Century Fox released a statement today saying that loyal
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
, and filmmakers
. 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. For more details check out Frank Spotnitz's awesome
