What the heck is happening in the 'X-Files: I Want to Believe' trailer?

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.
