On Sunday, January 24th, Fox will bring back Chris Carter’s brilliant series, The X-Files, for a six-episode revival run that will reunite beloved FBI Special Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) for more alien-related exploits.
The last time we saw The X-Files on the airwaves during its initial run was back in May 2002, so if you watched the series throughout its nine seasons, you may be in need of a refresher on all the key players and integral storylines that make up the core mythology of The X-Files.
Mythology in regards to The X-Files could mean various things: the existence of aliens and how our government plays into that, various characters that fit in with different prophecies, the “Black Oil” that became a prominent antagonistic force during season three, the various conspirators and their attempts to derail Mulder and Scully’s work on the X-Files, Scully’s »

So, we’ve arrived at the top 20, slowly creeping toward those films that are exactly what a romantic comedy should be. We’ve seen films that fall into the category, but lean more toward other genres. We’ve seen romantic films that are funny enough to be comedies, but don’t entirely represent the spirit of the rom-com, despite being brilliant films. Now, we form a clearer picture of what a romantic comedy is. Not all of the films in this section are necessarily “good,” but they’re all iconic, definitive romantic comedies (hence their inclusion). Memorability does not necessarily come partnered with quality. It means right place, right time.

One of the most bizarre photos ever to float around the annals of history now has suitably ridiculous backstory with Elvis & Nixon. Michael Shannon is the Elvis you really didn't know you needed and Kevin Spacey is about as good at playing a weird power-hungry President as you would expect Kevin Spacey to be (after all, the character is basically real world Frank Underwood). Elvis & Nixon comes from the pen of Dread Pirate Roberts Cary Elwes and is directed by Liza Johnson. It'll be slowly gyrating to theaters near you this April. »

For decades, the most requested photo from the National Archives is an image featuring a meeting between music icon Elvis Presley and President Richard Nixon in 1970. The story of this iconic meeting has finally made it to the big screen in the new movie Elvis & Nixon, with IMDb revealing the first trailer. The trailer debut is especially significant, since today is Elvis Presley's birthday.
Elvis & Nixon tells the story about Elvis Presley (Michael Shannon) visiting President Richard Nixon (Kevin Spacey) at the White House in December of 1970. The meeting was initiated by Presley, who wrote Nixon a six-page letter requesting a visit and suggesting that he be made a 'Federal Agent-at-Large' in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. Presley brought with him family photos and a Colt 45 pistol as a personal gift to the President.

In perhaps one of the most intriguing cinematic pairings of this year, Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey have teamed for Elvis & Nixon, an account of one particular strange meeting between a King and a President. Co-written by Cary Elwes, the picture tells of a time when Presley had the “urgent request” to be inducted into the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. Driven by a hatred of the drug culture that had emerged in recent years — The Beatles being a key example — he was seeking an opportunity to enact some justice; the President, on the other hand, thought it would be a good way to communicate with younger folks.
Directed by Liza Johnson (Hateship Loveship, Return), the first trailer has now landed today ahead of a release in April. Partially appealing just to see the House of Cards star back in the White House (this time without a tinge of »
