I have to admit that I'm somewhat surprised with the first trailer for The X-Files: I Want to Believe. While I figured it would play like a true teaser, showing almost nothing from the film but one or two cool shots, the first trailer gives a nice (re-)introduction to the characters with some plot details to boot.
The X-Files: I Want to Believe Trailer
In grand X-Files manner, the as yet untitled 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 (Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Anderson) 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.
The first trailer for The X-Files: I Want to Believe throws enough goodies at us and, as expected, leaves us hanging at the end. What could they be looking at?
The X-Files: I Want to Believe opens to theaters on July 25th.
