Hello Philes! It's almost birthday time at XFN! In celebration of our 5th birthday, and in light of the recent Olympic Swim Team's cover version of "Call Me Maybe" and the outstanding success of the latest Tweet-A-Thon (45,357 tweets and TT in France, Germany and Australia!), we've decided to take the phile fun to a whole new level.
XFN staff are hard at work on our own cover of "Call Me Maybe," titled GREENLIGHT BABY. With lyrics by K. Andersen, vocals by our own Tiffany Devol, and a production team made up of XFN's editor-in-chief (and XFN Productions principle) Avi Quijada, LAX-Files' Erica Fraga, and XFN's Joselyn Rojas; we felt this would be a fun project to celebrate the 19th 10/13 as well as XFN's 5th birthday!
What do you need to do? Grab a video camera and film yourselves (and friends!) acting out the lyrics! How, where, or with whom you film is completely up to you, but whatever you do, the idea is to promote XF3!
Frank Spotnitz responded to a fan's email this morning to say that while there will be no X-Files film this year, there is more than hope for XF3.
"There won't be a movie this year, Beth, but there is more than hope - those of us insisting on a third movie are right; those who doubt its creative and commercial potential are simply dead wrong. Don't give up!"
The Believe in the Future campaign has been going strong for the last four years with no intention of stopping. We hope you will stick around with us because once this film does get made and hits theaters, it will be the biggest, most long-overdue fan party of all time. Don't give up, because no one gets there alone.
What started as a suggestion from a phile in September of 2011, has now turned into a worldwide movement with over 119,000 tweets being sent in support of a third X-Files feature film.
Last night, the XF3 Army’s fourth twitter event took place, and after three previous events rocketed the campaign into the top 10 hashtags on twitter, an X-Files hashtag had yet to become a Trending Topic.
That all changed at 6pm Pacific Time on March 10th when #TXF3 suddenly appeared as the 4th trending topic WORLDWIDE and stayed there for half an hour.
We would like to thank the philes that participated and the XF3 Army worldwide for their support. This is NOT over, so look for more trending events coming soon to a Twitter near you!
As of today March 10th, 2012 at 6pm, #txf3 trended 5th worldwide, during the Americas' Trending Power Window.
We will have more stats for you as the tweet-a-thon finishes, but this is what we came for and look at that, we conquered!
Well done, philes!
Looking for a way to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Mulder and Scully’s first meeting in the “Pilot”? Well then have we got a party for you! Join us on Saturday, March 10th to not only show your love for Mulder and Scully, but to show 20th Century Fox that this fandom is in it until we win it!
We’re headed back to Twitter for another XF3 campaign. Like last time, it will run from the moment the first time zone (New Zealand) hits midnight on March 10th until the last time zone (Hawaii) hits midnight on March 11th.
So wherever you are in the world, join us in tweeting for a third film. You can also tweet directly to Fox (@20thcenturyfox), too. Check out the guidelines below to help us make the biggest impact possible.
