Here’s a look at the footage.
Even after watching the teaser several times, I’m no closer to guessing what the plot will be of the X-Files sequel. And apparently Chris Carter provided no revelations in his interview with SciFi Wire.
Instead he reiterated that the film is a stand alone story that will not pick up where the last movie let off. From the teaser, we know that Billy Connolly has joined the cast as a guy with really long hair and that Amanda Peet is an FBI agent who according to Carter has “gone missing.”
Carter does added that the movie will reflect the passage of time. Apparently Fox Mulder (David Duchovany) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) have changed since when last saw them in 2002.
“The truth is, after all that time, Mulder and Scully were different people, and we were different people, so the ‘X-File’ we came up with five years ago is still the X-File in the movie, but their personal lives – the state of their relationship, all those things – have changed over time, and that was kind of interesting,” Producer/Writer Frank Spotnitz said.
While I’ve been monitoring the progress of the movie, I haven’t really been excited about it yet. Six years is a long time to have been without X-Files.
But after watching the teaser, I’m ready to break out the DVD of the last movie and rent some of the series. The countdown to July has begun.
