The X-Files has a new promo poster and it’s so deliciously old school that we can’t help but love it.
Also, the first episode was screened at Cannes this week, reports Dark Horizons, and we have some tantalising details for you:
– Feedback was very positive
– The original credits remain intact (yay!)
– Skinner and the Cigarette Smoking Man appear in the premiere (Yay too!).
Also Chris Carter talked briefly about the show’s return after the screening. Here’s what he has to say:
“It’s certainly being filmed with the modern technology. Our stories are contemporary stories happening now, some of them ripped from the headlines. I think this show has kept pace with time. For the future of X Files, if we are to come back, I think you’ll see us come back with these mini-series, if you will. Special events. We used to tell a story over a long saga, 22 to 25 episodes. Now the arc is much sharper, from one to six. So I think we pack a lot more in to these six episodes.
The show was originally mythology episodes that were scattered alongside the standalone monster of the week episodes. We do in this six-episode arc a combination of those two things. We begin with a mythology episode, we end with a mythology episode, and the episodes in between are standalone episodes, including monster-of-the-week episodes.”
Well, that’s all good because we weren’t already excited enough! Is it January 24th yet?
