'X-Files: I Want to Believe' Offers Another Box Office Flop, 'Dark Knight' Still Rules


July 28, 2008 02:47:56 GMT


Apparently, many moviegoers didn't believe in the latest "The X-Files" feature film adaptation. Debuted in theaters a week after "The Dark Knight" made its record-breaking performance in the box office, "The X-Files: I Want to Believe" is far from presenting another impressive box office result. In fact, the sci-fi mystery movie has to be satisfied placing in fourth below its fellow newcomer "Step Brothers".

Pulling in $10 million over the three-days weekend, the Chris Carter's tidbit could not overshadow the success of "X-Files" first movie version which was released on June 19, 1998 and opened atop the box office chart with $30.1 million. Nevertheless, the disappointing result of the flick that teams up David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson once again was not a surprise. Box Office expert Gitesh Pandya has predicted that it would bow in following "Dark Knight" and "Step Brothers" with less than $20 million.
