Chris Carter Gives Us Our First Look At The X-Files Season 11

The X-Files Season 11 Gallery 1 of 4

More From The Web Click to zoom

Despite mixed reviews, The X-Files revival was a ratings hit, with audiences hungry to find out what had happened to Agents Mulder and Scully seven years after the extremely dodgy X-Files: I Want to Believe feature film. Buoyed up by their success, Fox commissioned a further 10 episode season, which is currently shooting in Vancouver (it wouldn’t be right for the X-Files to film anywhere else, right?).

Now, thanks to an interview that show creator Chris Carter did with EW, we have an idea of what everyone’s favorite paranormal investigators will be dealing with. Cast your mind back to last season’s finale and you’ll remember that there was an alien virus sweeping the planet, with Scully mysteriously immune to its effects. It left Mulder dying and the two trapped in gridlock unable to get medical attention.

Towards the end of the video, Chyna gave a smirk and an eye-roll as Belly rapped, "You were seduced by her sin / Don't let Lucifer in /She took you for everything / You let her do it again."

Exclusive: ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Challenges Contestants on Music Video and Dancing Skills
It almost wouldn’t be America’s Next Top Model without some sort of music-related challenge.

While music -- singing or dancing in music videos -- doesn’t seem like an obvious area for a model to master, it’s become an intrinsic part of the long-running reality competition ever since creator Tyra Banks first made cycle two contestants compete to appear in the music video for her debut single, “Shake Ya Body.”

Alexander Wang Drops Full Campaign Video With Skrillex

Skrillex surprised his fans last week when he appeared in a teaser alongside Kylie Jenner for fashion designer Alexander Wang’s upcoming fall campaign, contributing some new music for the advertisement along the way. Now the full version of the video has been released, with an extended version of the track first heard in the preview.

Filmed by Director X, the man behind Drake’s viral “Hotline Bling” video, the Alexander Wang campaign features a group of celebrities taking over an uninhabited mansion as they throw a rowdy house party. Skrillex may seem a bit out of place among the video’s entourage, which includes the likes of Kylie Jenner, Big Sean, A$AP Ferg and more, but the music he’s provided ties the whole ad together and will have fans hoping for an official release of the full track.

From Beyoncé to Bowie: The Seven Best Music Videos Nominated at the 2016 VMAs

From Beyoncé to Bowie: The Seven Best Music Videos Nominated at the 2016 VMAs
MTV’s annual Video Music Awards are set to air this Sunday night, and — as usual — the film world couldn’t possibly care less. And that’s understandable. After all, we have enough award shows of our own to worry about, and the VMAs are better known for Britney Spears tongue-kissing Madonna (what a scandal!) than they are for celebrating great art.

But perhaps we’re being a bit too hasty and dismissive. The interplay between movies and music videos has been thoroughly documented, but a glance at the list of recent Vma winners is enough to suggest that relationship is growing stronger, and might even demand a greater degree of critical attention. “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” director Francis Lawrence may not be receiving many accolades for his film work, but the clip he created for Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” won MTV’s highest honor. “Detention” was widely
