First Official X-Files Pictures and Chris Carter Speaks

Published 7 years ago by

officialxfile First Official X Files Pictures and Chris Carter SpeaksRegular readers will know that Screen Rant can’t wait for the new X-Files movie. Well, Heath and myself can’t wait, Vic isn’t as excited. However all that will change come the first trailer. I hope:-)

The first official pictures of the film have been released, and it’s very exciting news, there are loads of action shots of… er, Mulder and Scully walking and looking at a computer.

Okay, nothing exciting there, but X-Files creator and the film’s director Chris Carter told USA Today that the film will not involve the conspiracy plot line that bogged the show down in the last few seasons.

Carter is quoted as saying :

“We want a stand-alone movie, not a mythology conspiracy one.”

This is great news for fans as I believe the first feature suffered because they tried to connect it to the show, and because of this the film doesn’t stand up well on its own (or even beside the series for that matter).

Carter then goes on to say:

“There’s a whole audience I want to introduce X-Files to. There were kids who couldn’t watch it on TV because it was too scary. Now they’re in college. I wanted a movie that everyone could go to.”

Again, this is all good news, and if all goes well we might just have a new franchise starter, much like the original Star Trek film series, only lets hope that it has more consistent quality.

There may not be much to excite Vic, yet, but for fans of the show, this is nothing but good news.

It looks like the publicity machine is gearing up on this one, so stay tuned for more developments.

  1. I hope they at least reference the conspiracy a little. I mean at the end of season9 they were basically on the run…
    Can’t wait for this film. It will be great to see Mulder and Scuuuullllyyy back together.

  2. Niall, for what its worth, (I don’t put much faith in tv guide) however their quoting from Chris Carter today that the New X-Files film plot is a “continuation of the series, imagining how the characters lives have evolved.

    Also on the Conspiracy plot in the tv show ,,,”Its going to be government based as far as the conspiracy goes, but expect this NOT to be a revisitation of the shows convoluted conspiracy”.

    This is great news to me (if true). I wasn’t too hyped to see a Wearwolf/Batboy episode or a alien implant plotline.

  3. Simply I just CAN’T WAIT ANYMORE!!! I want to see on the BIG SCREEN and I WANT IT NOOOWWWWWW!!!!

    I Knew the xfiles lately, just a few years ago, after the original end of 9th season. I saw the movie too. Recently I’ve bought all seasons in DVD and I’m about to begin the last one.
    The only bad thing I can sea until now, is the dark Mulder that the original Fox Mulder of the Pilot Episode have become since 7th season.

  4. Hey Lucas glad to hear from a fellow X-files fan!!
    Concerning Mulder you have to admit he was getting more Jaded with things and had to go underground for seasons 7 and 8.

    He is in the last 2 part episode and its a good one.
    Hope you like Season 9. I really liked Robert Patrick and the epsodes during season 9 had alot of closure to them.
    I’ll never forget the one that had the Brady Bunch house and Bud Bundy in the same episode. Rock on Lucas I’ll see you in line.

  5. Hi, I have to admit at the end of episode 20th still don’t like Robert Patrick at all, not even a very very little bit.
    But, as says Agent Mónica Reyes, I’m an open-mind person, so I hope I can change my mind in the 9th.
    One question for anyone now: When might be the new xfiles movie on big screen?!

    Sorry about the grammar and syntax, but English is not my native language, ok.

  6. Another question people: Do you want another season? Well, I do!! Who don’t? :D :D :D :D

  7. Well yea I guess
    Yeah Lucas, alot of folks didn’t like Robert Patrick, IMO, I thought he was perfect for the role.
    Release date is July 25th.
    What part of the world are you in?

    It usually comes out 1 month everywhere else.
    Sure I would love to see a new X-files tv show. But I’m not sure Ducovney would be involved. He left the show after season 7 to go do films. Now he’s working on the Showtime show “Californcation”.
    But maybe they could do a reboot.

  8. Don’t even joke about rebooting!!

    To me Duchovny was a huge part of the show. I’m hoping for a series of movies though, so I’m praying that this is a hit!


  9. Hi Steve Adams:
    Well, you’ll see, I don’t care DD himself, I just care about the characters, I mean if DD is replaced by another actor (Denis Quaid, Topher Grace or whoever) but remains the soul of FOX MULDER it’s just fine, the tv series goes on, I only care the story.

    I’m from Argentina.

    And that about 1 month, what is it? It’s about the new movie?

  10. Hey Lucas, yeah I wouldn’t mind seeing Topher Grace in a new X-files. He would be a good choice.
    I hope your right and this does spark a new show!
    Greetings Argentina.

  11. well, I would choose Denis Quaid, but whatever, doesn’t matter, have you seen them both in the movie “In goog company” from 2005 it’s a bit old but i tink it’s a good movie.

    ’bout new seasons we should contact Chris Carter and ark for one, two, maybe 20 more seasons, what d’you think people?

    Steve, where are your from?

  12. Hey Lucas, no I didn’t see that film. Denis Quaid seems a bit too old for a new tv series and he’s pretty much a film actor.
    I would totally be down for more x-files!!
    Lucas I’m writting you from Burbank California. :)

  13. Maybe to act as Fox but, Mitch Pileggi is older than David, and you have to admit that Denis Quaid is better actor than that guy who represents to D.A. Fallmer in the 9th season.

  14. I’m all for a new cast. Let’s not recast Agent Mulder let’s hand it off to a new team!!

  15. yeah, that’s what i’m talking about!!!, new team, same old story, jajaja yeah!!! Chris should think about it, Am I right? ;)

  16. stand-alone movie? they got a son to rescue from colonization, hello?

  17. X-Files season 9 spoliers ahead
    Julia,,, in Season 9, Scully gave away the baby to protect it.
    I can’t see them going back to that plotthread.

  18. who’s been talking about a stand-alone movie?, not me, and as good as I can read english you’re the only one person who do that, hello?

    For Julia C.: in this place I was going to write some sarcasm text, but don’t deserve de waste of time.


    Just for the record: my language is Spanish.

  19. I was talking about what Carter said, HEELLOOOO??????

  20. Julia C.: I have to admit it was my mistake, I’m sorry, I do not read the complete article, just read the users’ posts, I hope you can forgive me, I didn’t intend to be a jerk.

    Friends? :)

  21. i have been watching x files since i was 11. It is the best TV show in the last 30 years cant wait for the movie yeahhhhhhhhh! woohoo i say(bring back the show)
