New X-Files movie gets lame title

The upcoming X-Files movie has finally received its long awaited title. I was expecting something close to "The X-Files: Attack Of The Crazy Werewolves" but 20th Century Fox decided on "The X-Files: I Want To Believe". Err, lame isn't it? From AP:
The title is a familiar phrase for fans of the series that starred David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI agents chasing after aliens and supernatural happenings. "I Want to Believe" was the slogan on a poster Duchovny's UFO-obsessed agent Fox Mulder had hanging in the cluttered basement office where he and Anderson's Dana Scully worked.

"It's a natural title," Carter said in a telephone interview Tuesday during a break from editing the film. "It's a story that involves the difficulties in mediating faith and science. `I Want to Believe.' It really does suggest Mulder's struggle with his faith."

"I Want to Believe" comes 10 years after the first film and six years after the finale of the series, whose opening credits for much of its nine-year run featured the catch-phrase "the truth is out there."
Oh well, I don't really care about the title but I do want to believe that this movie will be much better than the first one. I really, really want to believe .
