FOX: *random advertising junk* For 9 years, The X-Files had us glued to our seats every week. The weird stories, the wild and paranormal phenomenon, and of course, Agents Mulder and Scully. And now, six years after we said goodbye to the show, it's back, as a movie. The X-Files: I Want to Believe, opens this Friday. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are back. Though David admits that with the story picking up several years after the show ended, it was a little difficult to figure out who Mulder had become.
DD: In some way it's trickier than creating something new, because you have something to compare to. You know, you have, you have some things that people recognize in the character so you can't just wing it, you know. You gotta kind of in a way study what you did and figure it out again, you know, for this period of story, this point in time.
FOX: Even after these years, David is still impressed by the quality of The X-Files. In fact, he thinks till this day, there's nothing quite like it.
DD: People tried, you know, they'd taken the formula, try to make the show. But they don't have Chris, they don't have our writers, our directors, so it's good people watch it, it doesn't matter what it's about. It just had a lot of things going for it at the same time.
FOX: Of course he's referring to Chris Carter, the creator of the show and the director of the movie. He's notorious for keeping things very very secretive. So when we asked Gillian Anderson what we could expect from the movie, she couldn't get too confidential.
GA: The audience can look forward to be pretty scared, obviously Mulder and Scully back again together, and investigating things in various forms, and there's some blood, and i think that's about all I can tell you.
FOX: Here are a few things I've heard, and this will make sense to X-Files fans. No mythology, one scary story, and yes, Shippers will be happy.
