    If this film ignores the last couple of seasons, I'm OK with that. For me, The X-Files ended with Season 7.

    I'm thrilled beyond belief that they're not getting back into the alien-conspiracy bull****. That had to be the most unsatisfying long-form story in television history. I always preferred the one-shots. A standalone story with these people is great news. The first movie, while good, was a huge wasted opportunity. While they still had the whole world watching, they could have wrapped the alien plotline up, and gone home triumphant.

    I'd consider Scully a sexy smart chick if it weren't for the fact that every week she'd discover that her world view was incorrect, and yet would instantly reset back to "unconvinced skeptic" the following week. By season three or four, you wanted to shake her like an infant every time she said, "There has to be a reasonable explanation for this."

    The only thing that worries me is that Carter is directing. He directed what is possibly the worst (or "so-bad-it's-GOOD") X-Files episode with "First-Person Shooter," and a lot of his other episodes were all over the place. Too bad they didn't try to get Bowman back.

    Or is he still in film-director jail after Elektra?

    From what I've read It's a "stand-alone-film"

    Cool i knew they were talking about it but if they leave it where Gillan Anderson and David Duchnovy are back Cool. To me X-Files ended when Gillian Anderson left the show. I didn't like it as well with the other guy as Mulder's partner.

    DJK edit: Editing out the quote.


    Well the poster looks just like the final image from the trailer so I am guessing its legitimate.

    Just a reminder to everyone that bootleg footage is not allowed in any form on the boards. The same goes with discussing where and how to obtain the footage. Thanks. :)

    I'd say the poster is fine. We went through this type of thing back in the 3SA days and we never had too many problems with spoiler pictures/posters (apart from hyperspace). If the website that is hosting it is forced to remove it, we will as well.

    I love that they're keeping this thing so secretive. I don't want to be spoiled to the extent we were with ROTS. I can't wait for this flick...

    I can't wait until the movie comes out. I love the X-Files and I've been harrassing my local theater to do a midnight showing so I can dress up as Scully for the evening! I love the name of the movie as well, especially because I have Mulder's "I want to believe" poster *exact copy* hanging up on my wall in my room.

    Woohoo! that poster is awesome! I can't wait for hi-res versions in English to be released!

    FYI I have a bunch of promo photos, photos of Gillian/David and other X-Files folks up in my Multipleverses gallery - you can view them HERE!

    Ok...either that poster above is a fan work...or the studios are really slipping.

    Duchovny's face is an obvious insert...and it's stretched a touch to make it work...and Anderson doesn't look right either.

    I'm hesitant to buy that as official.

    It looks like from the photos Gillian got some work done post shooting. Tragic.

    Seriously - I think I'm more excited for this than Indiana Jones.

    Woot! Woot!

    Yes. Yes, I did.

    Well, maybe the Cylons, having had their fill of the Galactic Colonials, have turned their eye to the Alien Colonists and bounty hunters. Afterall, that whole alien mess seemed pretty convoluted, so maybe they're turning to outside Cylon contractors to give them a better plan (you think the intro to BSG is for exposition? It's a marketing campaign for Cylon Services Inc.! ;) )

    Sorry but that was lackluster it didn't do it for me, I'm still looking forward to the movie but I just didn't enjoy that trailer the way I should have.
