Today we have the trailer for the upcoming "Goats" comedy, starring David Duchovny, Vera Farmiga, Graham Phillips, Keri Russell and Ty Burrell. Check it out below.
Plot: 15-year-old Ellis (Phillips) is getting ready to leave his luxurious home in the foothills of Tucson for his freshman year at Gates Academy, an East Coast prep school. This means leaving behind Wendy (Farmiga), his flaky, new age mother and the only real father he has ever known, Goat Man (Duchovny).
The new movie is directed by Christopher Neil and is based on a novel by Mark Poirier. It already premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is now set to hit theaters on August 10th, in limited release.

Wasn't that the movie that tried to be like The X-Files, so much that David played a very Fox Mulderish character? Yeah, see, all I recall of that film was the huge alien thing. It was like Men in Black, but less coherent, and more forgettable, and I say that because don't remember much of a damned thing about it.
As for the X-Files 3 film, fuhgeddaboutit. Not happening. Too late now to make any sense. They trapped themselves with the 2012 timeline, thinking they'd have that movie out long before then, and then nothing happened. So, it's over. Fox should have either given them the money to do X-Files 2 right, instead of making a film even fans hate, or just passed on the opportunity. FOX's bean counters screwed us on that one.
Xfiles 3 will never happen. The last one was horrible, and their audience has "moved on". Plus Gillian Anderson isn't really turning back the hands of time with her face.
Fox should just wait a few more years, and then make another X-Files TV series, ala Next Generation. Duchovny could cameo from time to time. I'm sure Fox will find a way to squeeze every last drop of profit from this franchise.

Totally agree with this, if they got some decent writers on board they could have another hit on their hands. X-Files was an amazing show with tons of promise that fizzled out due to inept writers that squandered a great premise.
I know, right, trailer. I guess he just got tired of fighting David to stay on the show, and when I think about it, I get angry because Duchovny really screwed the pooch on that one, thinking he needed to run off for career's sake, striking while the iron's hot so to speak, only for him to immediately fizzle out and die. What a waste.
Season 1-6 are the best, and the show didn't choke up until he left.
