20th Century Fox
The Sentinels are coming!
"X-Men" fans were thrilled to learn at Comic-Con that the robots would be appearing in the next film, "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Now, they can get an in-depth look at the Sentinels on a newly launched Trask Industries website from Fox.
A follow-up to both 2006's "Last Stand" and 2011's "First Class," Bryan Singer's "Days of Future Past" splits time between 1973 and a future year. Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Ian McKellan, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, and Anna Paquin are among the cast members of both films set to reprise their roles (yes, we'll see both Stewart and McAvoy as Professor Xavier).
Stewart has described the time-bending epic as the "'X-Men' of all 'X-Men' pictures."
Celebrating the company's 50th anniversary, the Trask site is chock full of interesting tidbits, facts, and images, including one of a Sentinel at President Ronald Reagan's inauguration. There's info about founder Bolivar Trask (played by "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage, pictured in character above), as well as a self-congratulatory video about all the great work the company has done over the years.
The promotional footage (rather ominously) notes, "As we celebrate five decades of achievement, we also bid farewell to regular production of the Mark I and shift our efforts to full-time manufacturing of the Mark X -- our first complete overhaul of the Sentinel line."
In a quote in the "About" section of the site, attributed to Trask in 1973, the founder says, "The mutant threat is the defining issue of our time. We can choose to stem the impending tide of extinction or we can stand by passively and allow it to wash away any remnants of our species."
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" hits theaters July 18, 2014.
