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?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
