The X-Files is a 1998 science fiction movie based on the television series of the same name.
"Fight the Future" is the film's subtitle and/or tagline. It was used to distinguish the movie from the television series. In many places, the phrase appears to be part of the film's title -- for example, in promotional materials and on the cover and spine of the DVD packaging. However, the opening title and closing credit sequences within the movie, and the studio boilerplate on the DVD packaging and promotional posters, state the title of the film as simply The X-Files.
If viewed in the context of the X-Files chronology, the film takes place between seasons five and six of the TV series.
