Actually, let’s not even answer that question! In an era where far too many movie previews give away far too many plot details, I’m kind of elated that The X-Files: I Want to Believe trailer is cryptic at best. Admittedly, the opening sequence plays a little bit like an old episode of Profiler — “She tried to escape, but she couldn’t,” mutters the older, grayer, decidedly less female Ally Walker — but I’m digging all the creepy imagery: corpses buried in ice, big needles, terrified faces slowly opening horror-filled containers. I’d have preferred a little more Gillian Anderson up in there, but at least that closing bit of dialogue — “So you believe in these kinds of things?” “Let’s just say I want to believe.” — makes the title seem significantly less lame. Also, I’m not gonna lie: I rewound and paused a half a dozen times trying to see if Mulder and Scully were going in for the kiss. My findings? Inconclusive.
