Yet More X-Files 2 Werewolf Disinformation

mulder werewolf Yet More X Files 2 Werewolf DisinformationHot on the heels of The X-Files WonderCon presentation, which has sent many fans into a frenzy – comes yet another fake image to help throw X-Filies off the scent of the forthcoming film’s plot.

As I’ve stated before, Chris Carter already got me with the fake werewolf image. I was silly, I was excited, but once bitten, twice shy. Now I am very suspicious of anything X-Files related.

So what does this new image entail? More werewolves. Well, in particular an image that purports to show a test of David Duchovny in mid-transformation into a lycanthrope and a call sheet to help convince us that this is the case.

Don’t worry, it is a fake – but it seems that Chris Carter is the person behind this barrage of disinformation.

I have to wonder, when will it stop?


Actually, I don’t think it will.

I feel that Carter is hoping that schmucks like me stop posting these stories, because they won’t know what is real and what is fake.

Well Chris, I might not believe you, but I am following this film like Mulder follows a UFO, so no matter how “out there” or bizarre these stories become, I will try and discover the truth.

Just to highlight the effort that these guys went to in order to convince us that the picture was real, here is the original picture, a promo still from Duchovny’s show Californication:

And here’s a side by side comparison for you:

I have to admit they did a really nice job. Heck, they even thickened up Duchovny’s hairline. However, to make it more convincing, you would have thought that they could have chosen a less available image… but I think that Carter gets his kicks from letting us know that they are fake. Sadist!

That’s it for now, but I don’t think that we have heard the last of Carter and his shenanigans.

Like I always say, the truth is out there, and I intend to find it.

It however may take until The X-Files 2 is released on July 25 2009.

  1. CC can keep putting out all the disinformation he wants, but I am STILL really looking forward to this movie. Actually, I really HOPE that it’s not anything to do with werewolves. I hope it’s something that the show has NEVER touched on before.

  2. Where did you even get this photomanipulation from? I’d like to respond to this/understand what is going on, but you did not even name a source or say where you found this!

    I am an avid XF fan (have posted on here before so you may know that) and have been following this film closely for many, many months (and even before that, before it had been officially confirmed). I stayed up all Saturday night following the uploads of material from GA, DD, CC, and FS’s Q&A panel at WonderCon. I was on the computer for seven hours straight I tell you it was worth it to see that teaser trailer! I had a blast.

    So, as you can see, this is extremely important to me. I had not seen/heard of this photomanipulation (neither had someone on Haven since they alerted me to it) so I would greatly appreciate you enlightening me on the situation.

    I did not for one second believe in the original werewolf pictures but the matter of whether or not all that nonsense is true or not has yet to be settled on among us philes. Though I am a subscriber to the theory that it is disinformation and nothing more, I am very interested in the issue you present here and it could make for some material in the debates, haha!

    Thank you so much!

  3. If I’m not mistaken a source is listed at the bottom of the post.

    Vic

  4. Haha! *slaps forehead* You are quite right and I am very sorry for not noticing that!

    *embarrassed*

    Thank you very much, Vic! You have my sincerest apologies.

  5. Woohooo!!!

    I just saw the Teaser for The X-Files 2!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Up until 4 hours ago I didn’t really care that much about this movie. Don’t get me wrong, I love X-Files an if I could go back in time, I’d totally hot on Gillian Anderson when she was younger! And yes she’s still hot.

    Anyway, the teaser is enough to make me want to see it NOW!!!!

    I think the best thing about this was the fact that I wasn’t expecting to see the teaser for this film AT ALL, but they showed it to me and I had to be rude and ask to see it one extra time! It was on an HD TV and I had to digest it all before I could let it go, so I was greedy and I asked for another look. MAAAAAAAN!

    This is going to be one kick in the butt movie! I was watching a few previews and teasers today, but let’s just put it this way, it was The X-Files that took the trophy! It was so good I can’t remember most of the others I saw.

    I hear I’m not the only one who’s seen it so I guess it’s ok for me to talk about it. Some convention had a preview of it.

    You don’t see too much, but you’ll see enough to make you want to RE-Watch the old series. I think I’ll start now and I’ll finish it by the time it gets released. ;)

    Ahh, what a day…

    On a different note, I am very disappointed that Michael Giacchino didn’t win for best score… Oh well he’s young…

    I was told that the full HD teaser should be out on Apple’s Website in about a week or two. It might be a bit different though, cause I didn’t see any cast and crew credits in the end and I was wondering who was the composer for this new movie.

    Either way, it was an awesome clip and I can’t wait!!

    As for Trek, well, not much is slipping out of their super secret offices, but I’m told that the next Trailer will be one to generate enough warp energy for the USS Anticipation, to propel it across the universe on mere excitement from the fans.
    Yeah I know… big words… But hey, it’s Treks second chance to go where no man has gone before… again… ;)

  6. “I hear I’m not the only one who’s seen it so I guess it’s ok for me to talk about it. Some convention had a preview of it.”

    ^Tens of thousands of fans have seen it, hehe :P It was first shown at WonderCon on Saturday in San Francisco and then it was online by that night. It had 86,000 views and 23 Honors before FOX pulled it from YouTube. Luckily, I saved it to my computer beforehand.

    “cause I didn’t see any cast and crew credits in the end and I was wondering who was the composer for this new movie.”

    The composer for XF2 is Mark Snow (he was the composer for the series and the first film, Fight the Future; he has also composed for various TV movies and television shows such as Smallville)

  7. P.S. I meant to add that I do not think he composed the music used in the teaser trailer, however!

  8. Hey Kerry!

    Geee… Tens of Thousands have seen it? Hmmm, I almost thought I saw something so new that only a few had seen it… oh well, the excitement was still exhilarating. So, it’s Mark Snow again? Hmm, I haven’t heard any of his recent work so I don’t know how he’s evolved. I hope he’s going to be unique to the new show. With elements of the old series.

    I agree, it’s not Mark who’s doing the teaser music for XF2.

    But I’m glad you saw the teaser! I loved it! How did you like it?

    Take care Kerry and remember… DON’T TRUST ANYONE!!!!!!
