X-Files 2

Supposedly we'll see an official trailer sometime in May for The X-Files 2 and supposedly we'll also get a title, but who knows? At least we have a teaser poster. It's amazing that this film is still coming out in late July - it doesn't seem like they'll be able to actually finish it in that much time. We still haven't seen anything new besides bootlegged trailers, veiled plot discussions, and occasional photos - like the ones we're about to show you. But screw it, because X-Files 2 is still one of the most anticipated movies of the summer (ranked #8 on this list). And all you X-Files fans can't get enough of Mulder and Scully anyway.

X-Files 2

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 (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian 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. Hold out X-Files fans - July 25th will be here sooner than you think!

The X-Files 2 is directed by X-Files creator Chris Carter and co-written by both Carter and show regular Frank Spotnitz. The film arrives after a six year hiatus following the series' finale in May of 2002. The currently untitled X-Files 2 arrives in theaters this summer on July 25th.

Actually there are spoilers, if you look in the last photo at the newspaper, you can see most of the headline "FBI arrests --- ----- Frankenstein doctor". That clipping wouldn't be there if it was nothing to do with the plot now would it?!

I'm intrigued. The shroud of secrecy in this ad campaign evokes an aura of unquestionable thrills that lie ahead.

Laura, you mean to tell me that you really think Frankenstein is in the movie? I think that's just a random supernatural newspaper clipping, not anything plot related... 🙂

I think CC is playing with our minds. even though I still love this pictures, but that frankestein thing is just to keep us thinking ... But what i like the most is the I Want To Believe poster behind Mulder : D

Apparently Mulder likes Windows Vista; that's the "aurora" screen saver in the last photo.

The headline is actually from a stand-alone episode in The X-Files, Season Five, called "The Post-Modern Prometheus". And, yes, I think it's significant, because the new The X-Files Revelations DVD includes that specific episode! Hmmm... interesting. Kudos to the chap on this website who pointed out the headline!!! Something new for us to debate!

Gillian Anderson looks really hot in this film

Darrin on Apr 11, 2008


Also, is that a sketch of The Great Mutato in the corner?

Bat on Apr 11, 2008


Gosh damn.....Duchovny looks awsome!!!!!!!!!

"Frankenstein doctor". I don't mean literally Frankenstein. But anything along the lines of manipulating DNA to create something new (in humans) is often linked with Frankenstein. Other sources claim that there is a good doctor-bad doctor in this, as well as a boy with severe deformities....and a cult as well

Laura on Apr 11, 2008


LOL, Bat -- THE GREAT MUTATO! We could only hope that this is a super scary conclusion to that storyline! 🙂 And Laura, if you saw "The Post-Modern Prometheus", then you know what we're talking about. There IS a Frankenstein doctor in there, and Mulder even says so: "Good evening, Mr. Frankenstein." Not to mention that the entire episode is shot in black and white AND was one of the most acclaimed episodes of Season Five, and one of the coolest, funniest and best stand-alone episodes. Time will tell. Looking at the headline behind Mulder in that picture, we can clearly see the face of the mad doc: the same guy who played him in the episode!!! So, um, yeah dude, there's a clear connection. I SIMPLY CAN'T WAIT.

Um, one other thing, in the headline it reads in it's entirety FBI ARRESTS MODERN-DAY FRANKESTEIN DOCTOR. Modern-day! Modern! "The Post-Modern Prometheus"! For goodness sake, it all fits. 😛 Woohoo! The Great Mutato is back! Or bloody worse!

Eddie on Apr 11, 2008


If you look closely at the newspaper clipping as well you can see it's clearly Xzibit standing next to the "Frankenstein Doctor" so it must be something newer than the events of "Post-Modern...".

Knuckles on Apr 12, 2008


Okay, you were right. 🙂 Maybe there is a lot more to that headline than I originally thought... I'm not a huge X-Files fan so I missed that - but at least these are a start in terms of discussing potential plot details.

Alex Billington on Apr 12, 2008


As far as not being able to finish the movie by July 25th, we have to remember that the first movie essentially was just a bigger budget X-Files TV Episode. And with all the two-parter and three-parter mythology episodes, it was as if they were making multiple movies every season. They'll definitely be able to finish it by July.
