SDCC | First Look at Sentinels From ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’


Although director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past doesn’t open for another 10 months, Fox is taking full advantage of Comic-Con International to rev up the promotion machine for the sequel.

Coming Soon and First Showing have photos of a Trask Industries display outside the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego that provides our first look at the film’s Sentinels (well, at least their heads), the mutant-hunting giant robots that essentially rule the United States in a dystopian alternate future. There are also propaganda posters with slogans like “Fighting the Mutant Threat” and “Mutants Are Our Enemy.”

Trask Industries business cards are also being handed out that points people to this sleek if ominous-looking website (which in turn seems to promote the Comic-Con display).

Fox will hold its Comic-Con presentation Saturday afternoon in Hall H, which seems likely to feature something from X-Men: Days of Future Past, as well as an official announcement about X-Force.

Opening May 23, 2013, X-Men: Days of Future Past stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Lucas Till, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Adan Canto and Josh Helman.

    Yep, super stoked.

    Bumblebee is that you?

    Love the glass covering although suspect that’s not part of the actual design but just for display purposes.


    What is that a leftover Transformer face with some glass on it? Yet another director in need of a book slapper.. but who am I? just a fan, not a director who clearly thinks he can improve on the IP we all loved.

  • Ozymandas

    too small

  • Alex W

    You know they’re probably going to be cg right?

  • emmanuel ravelli

    disappointing…hope they will be larger in size than the head suggests. makes them look more like NImrod.. I like the giants.

  • gegaderode

    Ever notice TRASK is STARK with the letters rearranged? I always thought that was interesting.

  • Marvelfan

    The one thing that X3 got right was the look of the sentinels (the head atleast). These new ones look more like Manhunters. They could have used these guys in the GL movie.

  • KidDisaster

    can not wait for this movie its going to be awsome

  • sowat

    In current continuity it’s already been established that Stark funded the O.N.E. Sentinels that guarded Xavier’s mansion during the 198 stuff…yet this was never made a big deal of for some reason
