Gillian Anderson Blames “Dark Knight” For Poor “X-Files” Takings

Gillian Anderson Actress Gillian Anderson is blaming the popularity of “The Dark Knight” for “The X-Files” film’s low box office grossings.

The “X-Files: I Want To Believe“, starring Anderson and David Duchovny, earned a disappointing $10.2 million in its opening weekend (26-27Jul08) in the U.S., while “The Dark Knight” took an impressive $75 million in the same weekend. And Anderson is convinced that her movie – based on the hit TV show – is suffering because so many people are flocking to see the Batman sequel.She says, “It’s (The X-Files film) had a bit of a rough time in the States. It’s opening against one of the highest grossing movies, Batman.

“People in the States are so used to lots of CGI (computer-generated imagery), action and sex and we don’t really off a lot of that in this film.”
