Welcome to X-Files News!
Want to know what's happening in the world of Robert Patrick, aside from all those motorcycle rides we always hear about? The man behind Agent Doggett has been super busy lately. Patrick has a few movies that are under way including some with release dates that are just around the corner, like Endless Love.
Patrick has been very vocal about his new upcoming projects on his Twitter, especially Endless Love, Hellions and the new TV show From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series. Endless Love tells the story of a privileged girl and a charismatic boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart. The movie stars Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde as the leads, and Patrick plays the role of Pettyfer's father. The movie is set to hit theaters this Valentine's Day.
Hellions is a new Halloween horror thriller with no set release date as of yet. Patrick plays a cop who comes to help a pregnant teenager plagued by three malevolent trick-or-treaters on Halloween night. To get a sneak peek into what Hellions is going to be like, watch this interview on the set of the film, and see what Patrick has to say about it.
From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series is a new El Rey TV project produced in association with FactoryMade Ventures and filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. The story centers around two bank robbers who take Patrick's family hostage in order to cross the Mexican border but problems arrive when they encounter a group of vampires. The series got a 10-episode order and filming is underway now. It is set to hit the small screens starting March 11th, 2014 at 9PM EST.
The X-Files: Conspiracy #1 - Part 2 - Ghostbusters continues the storyline started in the premiere of this new series, but with an obvious new guest star in this crossover. For anyone reading "Conspiracy", I think one of the things you should take into consideration, in my opinion, is that this is the equivalent of having The Lone Gunmen TV show as a comic book series.

We’re sure that you’ve been diligently following all the new X-Files comic book releases that 2013 and 2014 brought us, The X-Files: Season 10 and the most recent The X-Files: Conspiracy crossover have been out and about for the enjoyment of everyone and giving us a lot to talk about.
But what is almost unknown is that there is one more treat coming to us this spring, one that had been stashed away for quite a while. Enter The X-Files Annual 2014.
When The X-Files: Conspiracy #1 - Part 1 and its following companions were announced, I have to admit to being worried. Seriously, I’m being honest here. I know it’s not the first time that the X-Files universe has collided with other franchises or even other shows, but it’s probably the first time that it was lined up to realms that were so different from the universe created by Chris Carter.
And perhaps that’s the thing; aside from the previous Thirty Days of Night crossover, the instances where X-Files had mixed with other “breeds” happened to be events where the other mate was also 1013 property.
Now, don’t get confused; these new issues do not belong in the same universe as The X-Files: Season 10, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not pulling all the stops to dive into the X-Files world in a novel way.
January 15th is the release date for the new set of crossover comics that IDW is about to launch. If you didn't know, The X-Files universe is about to collide, or mesh if you will, with the Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Crow and Transformers.
The first one is titled "Conspiracy #1" and you'll have our full review next week, but in the mean time here's a preview of the first few pages. Warning for some gruesome images included.
