I'm a long time fan of the television series The X-Files, especially the first few seasons when its focus was on odd and bizarre tales of horror and science-fiction. The later seasons dragged a little with seasons-long story-arcs and paranoid conspiracy tales. But still, as a whole, I enjoyed The X-Files as much as I have ever enjoyed a television series.
I still actually pine for it on the odd Friday night--it was at its best before the network moved it to Sunday--and so when I discovered the new movie is scheduled for release later this summer I got a little excited. The title: The X-Files: I Want to Believe. The release date: July 25, 2008.
This brief and unsatisfying description was found at the Yahoo!Movies website.
In grand X-Files manner, the film's storyline is being kept under wraps. This much can be revealed: It is a stand-alone story in the tradition of some of the show's most acclaimed and beloved episodes, and takes the complicated relationship between Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in unexpected directions. Mulder continues his unshakable quest for the truth, and Scully, the passionate, ferociously intelligent physician, remains inextricably tied to Mulder's pursuits.
