    you have a better chance of seeing the squid in "watchmen" than of seeing a third film in this series

    Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person who liked "I Want to Believe," but I really enjoyed it a lot and I'd welcome a third film. I do think it was just the timing that killed it, plus maybe that people were upset there were no aliens in it, but they always said it wouldn't. I think it'll end up doing well on DVD.

    Honestly, though I haven't seen I want to Believe, I do plan on seeing it, and much prefer X-Files over shows like Fringe, but I would be seriously amazed if they made another movie. It just didn't remotely do the kind of box office needed to warrant another movie. That may have been partially to do with the juggernaut Dark Knight, and who knows, maybe shows like Fringe will create a renewed interest in X-Files, but I doubt it would be enough.

    With all due respect, Frank Spotnitz is huffing glue. I'm a huge fan, but c'mon, everyone who saw the movie in the theaters would have to buy like four copies of the DVD to make this look attractive.

    It's his own damn fault. For years, he's been jerking fans around, never telling the stories we've asked for — or the stories that made the X-Files the X-Files. Seriously. the last movie, a run of the mill serial killer was the last straw. The Fringe does X-Files so much better than the X-Files, other than our affection for Mulder and Scully, why would you even bother? Note to Spotnitz, write the script as if it's the finale, let some of it "accidentally" leak to drum up hard core fan support, then how about doing something X-Files hasn't done in a decade, including the first movie and the last few seasons — DELIVER!

    I absolutely loved "The X Files: I Want to Believe." I thought it was nightmarish, intelligent, multi-layered and horrific! I think that given that the film has made back twice its budget at the cinema (international box office included), and should do well on DVD, not to mention fans all over the World clamouring for another film, we'll get a third feature film!

    I abolutely love the X files. Loved the first movie and i thought the second one was fantastic. It ended up being exactly what Frank and Chris said it would be. It focused on the characters and delt with heavy themes that have always been at the core of the x files. There's a lot more to the show than alien conspiracies. I'm confident that there will be an x files 3 because eventhough it wasn't a blockbuster it didn't lose money. Fox will jump on the bandwagon as all the sudios do. Remember back when Independence Day was a box office smash, think of all the end of the world, alien, hero type movies that came out after it. I guarantee if this 2012 movie does well this year it won't be long before we see x files 3 on the big screen.
