Here it is… the official trailer for the second X-Files feature film, The X-Files: I Want To Believe. This is definitely one of my most anticipated movies of the summer, although it’s difficult to say if these characters will still seem as compelling 6 years after the TV series wrapped up. Are Mulder and Scully still relevant?
The trailer opens with something that feels like a bit generic, hinting at a serial killer storyline with some sort of psychic trying to find a missing person (yes, that psychic is Billy Connolly). Gee, we’ve only seen that on like every single TV show that has come after The X-Files! However, once the music and the action started to build, I found my curiosity building as well.
The first X-Files movie was a bit confusing (partially because I wasn’t really watching the show on a regular basis back then), but I did appreciate the large scale production values they brought to it. If David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson can slip back into their roles without too much trouble, and if the story is a little more self-contained, then I think I’ll be more than pleased with this flick. What did you think of the trailer? The X-Files: I Want To Believe hits theatres on July 25th.
