New ‘X-Files’ Trailer Teases ‘Monster’

FOX seems to be going all-out in promoting January’s revival of The X-Files. They’ve released a new action-packed trailer, in which our favorite Agent Scully (Gillian Anderson) promises “It has a monster in it.”

I find it exciting to see Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully appearing to work together in a variety of situations in the trailer – whatever the status of their personal relationship, it doesn’t seem to have affected their work partnership.

Davis) is interposed with the show’s equally memorable tagline: “Trust No One”. I still don’t know how CSM isn’t dead, but I can’t deny I’m curious to find out.

Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
