Bryan Singer Unveils Sentinel From X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Posted on August 1, 2013 at 11:53 am by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


On the Trask Industries viral website, the mutant-hunting sentinels in X-Men: Days of Future Past are listed as 18 ft tall, and it appears that the production team actually built one to scale.  Director Bryan Singer tweeted a set photo of him standing next to one, and it’s almost three times his size.  IMDB lists the director at 5’10” so eighteen feet is definitely a possibility.  Presumedly the bulk of the sentinels will be computer generated, but I always like to see a practical model in filming.  It gives it a sense of tactile reality, and I think actors respond better to them.  The look is about what was expected, but I can’t wait to see these bad boys in action.  I hope to see them blotting out the future sky on their quest to wipe mutants off the face of the world.

The film stars  James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, Evan Peters, and Halle Berry.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014.
