(mbc.net) After a six-year hiatus FBI agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) have returned.  The duo is attempting to locate Monica Bannan (Xantha Radley), an agent who recently disappeared and is presumed dead. 

Mulder and Scully are paired with Joeseph Crissman (Billy Connolly), a priest haunted by psychic visions that guide him to victims' remains.  During their initial meeting Crissman unearths a mass grave as his eyes begin to bleed from their sockets.  Mulder, Scully, and the bureau are no longer skeptical of the priest's abilities, but can they be leveraged to find Bannan alive rather than dead?

The X Files: I Want to Believe was a commercial success, earning nearly $70 million at theaters and an additional $16 million from home video sales -- almost tripling its $30 million budget.
