I also posted this in your apes thread... To me, the top photo looks like a variation of Times New Roman, or perhaps Garamond. I'll need to compare it over some text. The second photo very much looks like the classic Trajan font to me, although I am not sure about that capital S. There are free versions of this font out there, and the pro version comes with some adobe applications.

Nah, Its not Impact. The "S" in your font is definitely square. Check out the image I posted below. I don't have this font on my computer. Some of the fonts I posted below have characteristics of the font you posted, but none are close really. Try dafont.com They also have a forum there were you can post an image for people to identify.

I couldn't find the dafont.com forums. I tried typophile.com, and so far no one's responded. But at this point, Mekanik is close enough. Thanks :)

while probably not the exact font, it looks very similar to Panther. This is basically a type of Ultra Condensed Sans Serif font. You can search around for others that might be a tad closer.

I understand it's "Arial Black", the same as Batman Begins.

Thanks AvP. I checked that site but I guess I didn't check the right section. I google X-Files font, because I need one for my X-Files project as well, and I found this site: http://www.typenow.net/themed.htm but didn't bother to look any further because they already had the X-Files and Hellboy fonts I needed there. To tell you the truth I didn't even notice the drop down bar.
