Mulder and Scully are on their way back, but what can we expect this time around.
Some fans were rejoicing, while others were a little more apprehensive when it was announced last month that 'The X-Files' would be returning for a six episode miniseries on Fox. But at a press call on Friday to discuss his new show 'Aquarius', David Duchovny seemed more that happy to answer any questions regarding the upcoming reboot and hopefully ease the fears of a few fans.
David Duchovny will be returning to Fox as Mulder in six new 'X-Files' episodes
When asked how easy it would be to step into Mulder’s shoes once again the actor said, "I don't know if it's easy yet until I do it But I am looking forward to it.” Duchovny also dished however that he had no hesitations about signing on for the reboot.
For a low-budget kids' movie, this British science-fiction adventure has an unusually sharp cast, decent effects and an energetic pace that helps to distract from the rather flimsy premise. So even if the story never quite builds a solid head of momentum, it holds the attention due to a dark-edged tone and some entertaining action sequences that give the terrific young actors a chance to shine.
It's set three years after robots invaded Earth, won the war in 11 days and locked all humans in their homes, using human collaborators to enforce this rule. In a seaside English town, the head collaborator is Smythe (Ben Kingsley), who spends much of his time pursuing hot single mother Kate (Gillian Anderson) and tormenting her teenage son Sean (Callan McAuliffe). Kate has taken in three orphaned kids: teen siblings Alexandra and Nathan (Ella Hunt and James Tarpey) and 10-year-old Connor (Milo Parker). And together these four young people figure out a way to short circuit their monitoring implants so they can leave their home. Sean is sure that his father (Steven Mackintosh) didn't die in the war, so he enlists the other three to help find him. And their search gets a boost when they stumble across a group of anarchic rebel veterans living the wild life in an abandoned hotel.
This partying hideout is a nicely raucous touch, even if its pungent innuendo essentially rules young children out of the audience. But this kind of blackly comical touch is more than welcome in a movie that's otherwise rather childish and earnest. Another nice touch is how the human collaborators are called the Volunteer Corps and identify themselves with Nazi-style armbands. And the robots' human-shaped mediator (Craig Garner) looks like a freaky demon-child. All of this helps overcome the film's strong sentimental streak, as well as some production values that are more in line with Doctor Who than a big-screen alien blockbuster.

Meanwhile, a young man named Sean Flynn is missing, and wanted by Robin Smythe and his team (who willfully serve the robot race) in connection with an alleged terrorist attack. Implanted in his head is a device that appears to respond to certain signals from the robots and he soon discovers that he has the power to control them. As the biggest threat to robot-kind he must be disposed of, but he is determined to restore freedom to mankind and sets out to build his own army to take back their planet.

Matthew Morgan is living in the romantic city of Paris after retiring from his teaching post as a philosophy professor. Despite having lived in France for some time, his knowledge of the language remains limited and so he more or less remains solitary since the tragic death of his beloved wife. However, soon he meets young Pauline Laubie, a dance teacher who also feels tremendously alone in her life and the pair develop an unusual bond of friendship. Their relationship is tested when she discovers that he has a son, with Matthew having never spoken about him. It soon becomes clear that he's struggling deeply to come to terms with his wife's death and is in dire need of a loving relationship once again no matter how platonic. Will he manage to find a way through his heartbreak with his new friend? Or do some wounds run too deep?
Continue: Mr Morgan's Last Love Trailer
Complex emotions and a gentle exploration of interpersonal connections make this Paris-set drama worth a look, especially since it's so nicely played by the eclectic cast. German filmmaker Sandra Nettlelbeck (Mostly Martha) lets the story unfold slowly and steadily, getting deep under the skin of the characters in the process. The draggy pace sometimes makes the two-hour running time feel very long indeed, but it lets the cast to take the time to create rich, detailed connections that are easy to identify with.
It's been three years since Matthew Morgan (Michael Caine) buried his wife Joan (Jane Alexander) in a cemetery in Paris, their chosen home. Now he imagines her everywhere he goes, feeling her absence all the time until he runs into the young dance instructor Pauline (Clemence Poesy). Not only does she remind him of Joan, but he fills a gap left in her life after her father died. So the two begin an offbeat friendship that feels more like family than anything else. Even so, Matthew's loneliness sparks a visit from his son Miles (Justin Kirk) and daughter Karen (Gillian Anderson), who's too busy to stay for very long. They of course don't trust Pauline. And as she witnesses Matthew's interaction with them, she begins to understand that he has never related to them as a father.
While the premise sets things up for a whole lot of healing and sentimentality, the script avoids this by remaining earthy and raw, digging deep into the characters without trying to explain everything they are doing or thinking. There certainly isn't a right way to mend the problems between Matthew and his children, although it's clear that a bit of openness and respect will go a long way. Caine plays this beautifully, with a spark of wry humour alongside Matthew's relentless pain. His scenes with Poesy have a delicate chemistry that is refreshingly difficult to fully understand, and yet it feels authentic. And when Miles enters their world, things shift in even more interesting directions.

'Non-Stop' isn't the best film you'll ever see, and, surprisingly, not the worst...
Stripping down Non-Stop into the ingredients that make it gives a good indication as to what you should expect: Liam Neeson. Air Marshal. Crazed terrorist demanding money. 40,000 feet in the air. Gillian Anderson. Bomb. Cryptic text messages.
Liam Neeson doing what he does best 'bemused proffesional'
Sounds bad, no? Well it is, but – according to a bunch of critics – not as bad as you might think. We had this pinned down as a 13% stinker on Rotten Tomatoes, but would appear as though the review-aggregating site has totted the reviews up to the sum of 59%, at the time of writing anyway.

The TV series was phenomenal, but can't we just leave it at that?
The news that there could be a third X-Files movie in the works is sure to provoke mixed reactions even from the show's most ardent fans. Though it was widely agreed that the first movie (1998) was a successful tie-in to the long-running sci-fi series, the second The X-Files: I Want To Believe (2008) drew mixed critical reactions with many complaining that it was not as strong as the TV show.
The nine season drama followed the activities of FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) who investigate the 'X-Files'; the unsolvable cases often involving supernatural or paranormal phenomena. As a result, the show had impressive scope and encompassed the horror, thriller, action and science fiction genres, as well as a little hint of romance between the two agents.

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have expressed interest in making a third 'X-Files' movie.
The paranormal franchise has aired more than 200 episodes over 9 seasons in the television series and has made 2 feature films.
Duchobny and Anderson first debuted their roles as FBI agents 'Fox Mulder' and 'Danna Scully', 20 years ago on 'The X-Files'.

Gillian Anderson - GQ Men of the Year Awards held at the Royal Opera House - Arrivals - London, United Kingdom - Tuesday 3rd September 2013
From the studio that brought us classics like Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle, this animated drama feels unusually low-key and realistic. But while the lack of fantastical elements leaves it somewhat dry, as if it should really be a live-action movie, the animation is still a lavishly detailed feast for the eyes.
It's set in 1963 Japan, where orphaned teen Umi (Bolger) lives with her grandmother (Hendricks) atop a hill overlooking a fishing village. She raises flags every morning as a signal her fisherman father, who died in the Korean War, then heads to school where the topic on everyone's lips is the impending demolition of the ramshackle clubhouse. As the nation prepares for the Tokyo 1964 Olympics, old buildings like this must go, but the students band together to protect it, and Umi teams up with student journalist Shun (Yelchin) to clean up the building and make a plea to the corporate boss (Bridges). Meanwhile, Shun is having a personal crisis: as he begins to fall for Umi, he starts to suspect that they have the same father.
The film never really weaves these two plot strands together, so as Umi and Shun try to save the clubhouse and work out their parentage, each storyline feels like a distraction from the other. But they both raise intriguing questions about the past, present and future in a nation still recovering from WWII. And the beautifully rendered backgrounds bring the period to life with artful detail. On the other hand, the characters are more basic anime shapes, inexpressive and a bit stiff, which makes it difficult to identify with them even when their stories turn extremely emotional.
