Frank Spotnitz Interview - X-Files Movie 2008 at Wonder Con

The plot's still being kept a secret - as is the title - but that didn't stop the X-Files cast, writer Frank Spotnitz, and writer/director Chris Carter from showing up at Wonder Con to talk about their much-anticipated second X-Files movie. This is what bothers me about the X-Files movie… Why is it untitled still? It's a very hard to promote a movie when you have to keep saying the Untitled X-Files Movie. Frank Spotnitz: "That's a very good point. The movie is untitled because… Why is the movie untitled? Because the studio hasn't given us the go-ahead to release the title." You ...

Carter Offers X-Files Hints

Chris Carter, creator of The X-Files, told SCI FI Wire that the upcoming second movie will be a stand-alone story that represents the best of the series. "This movie takes some of the most, I think, essential themes of The X-Files and incorporates them and puts them to the test," Carter said in a group interview at WonderCon in San Francisco on Feb. 23. "I think that for me, so much of The X-Files was about skepticism, but it was also about faith, and I think that plays a big part [in] this movie." The plotline of the as-yet-unnamed sequel remains a big secret--so much so that neither ... [Continua a leggere]

WonderCon 2008: Day 2 - Part 2!

The X Files 2 Frank Spotnitz - Chris Carter - David Duchovny - Gillian Anderson

The tag for the day was "It's here!"Showed trailer for movie. Trailer didn't show much. Overuse of quick cut scenes don't tell you very much. Only saw Amanda Peet, Billy Connolly, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. The trailer opens up with line of FBI/Police with dogs and long sticks searching a large "snow covered meadow". Billy Connolly is in front saying, "It's here." Repeatedly. Several quick cuts from other scenes, show other three actors, and it keeps coming back to Connolly's character moving through the meadow saying "It's here." He gets progressively louder and more strident, and f ... [Continua a leggere]

WonderCon: X-Files 2

The X-Files are back, not on your television screen (thankfully), but in an all-new, apparently eagerly anticipated, big(ger) budgeted feature-length film.

Also on hand was Frank Spotniz, series writer, producer, and co-writer of the new, as yet untitled (or un-subtitled) sequel. The Wonder-Con audience eagerly cheered the four members of the panel. All four were in town after working yesterday on the still-in-production ... [Continua a leggere]

WonderCon: Mulder and Scully show up! Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz, too! And they bring news and footage from X-Files 2!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. So, technically this was the 20th Century Fox panel, but it might has well have been called the Fox and Scully hour. That’s what people wanted to see.Poor Thai horror remake SHUTTER, all about spirit photography, was stuck before the big X-FILES 2 panel and even the hot Aussie from TRANSFORMERS and Hiro’s sidekick couldn't make much of a difference. You could feel the audience just politely waiting for that panel to end so the X-FILES panel would start. I’ll give them a little tribute. The footage looked a little crappy, although the usage of real ... [Continua a leggere]

Chris Carter Says 9/11 Killed X-Files, But America is Ready for It Again

We just got treated to a very brief clip from the new X-Files movie trailer, featuring a group of mysterious FBI types marching across the icy antarctic snows, with Ringo from the Lone Gunman in the lead, crying out, "We've found it!" Cut to lightning fast clips of a body being dragged over ice, Scully looking hotter than hell, Mulder looking not so bad himself, and lots of zoomy blurred stuff. No shots of Exhibit or Billy Connely, though Chris Carter did confirm for the millionth time that they would be in the film along with Amanda Peet as a federal agent. No word about that giant werewolf w ... [Continua a leggere]

In attendance were series creator Chris Carter and writer Frank Spotnitz, as well as stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. Right out of the gate, the group addressed the issues associated with the franchise's six year long absence."Because it'll scare the pants off of you," answered Carter when asked why this movie would be worth the wait. "Because you'll get to see Mulder and Scully together again, that's why."That said, Carter did elaborate on the ... [Continua a leggere]
