Go behind the scenes of the movie "X-Men" on Tuesday, July 11, at 8 p.m. on FOX-TV and discover the answers to the questions that all true fan-atics will be asking.

Robert Kelly (Bruce Davison), who wants to identify and eventually destroy them with his Mutant Watch Campaign. The film also stars Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin and Sir Ian McKellen.

The Fox special also presents an interview with the film's director, Bryan Singer.
