I mean, it’s no longer a rumor that a new X-Files movie is coming out on July 25th. But what I’m redundantly asking is uh, why? Didn’t the series end six years ago? Actually yes, it did, according to wikipedia, along with entirely too much information I never needed to know about the show aside from how the show (didn’t really) ended.
What I do remember from the commercials around the end of the series was Scully having some sort of alien baby that was implanted during the time she was ‘abducted’ aka filming movies or whatever not related to The X-Files. God help the writers and staff/crew of this movie if there’s some sort of precocious, wise-crackin’ 7 year old with super powers doing amazing things in this movie. I’ll give Chris Carter the benefit of the doubt, but it’s a device shamelessly used in movies that I still consider pretty good. I guess.
