Trask Industries Mark I Sentinel Teaser X Men Days of Future Past First Look At Sentinel Designs From X Men: Days of Future Past [Updated]

UPDATE: Check out more images of the Sentinel Head!

Although it’s not official we can safely say that Bryan Singer and Twentieth Century Fox are using a significant portion of their 90-minute Comic-Con presentation this Saturday to offer the first ever real look at X-Men: Days of Future Past. The rest of the panel will be for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and The Wolverine.

Teasing the imminent unveiling, Fox is holding a neat viral marketing setup for Trask Industries – the company run by Peter Dinklage’s character (Bolivar Trask) that creates the giant mutant-hunting Sentinel robots that’ll play a big role in Days of Future Past.

In Marvel Comics and in the X-Men cartoons, the traditional Sentinel designs feature a pink and purple color scheme and from the images below featuring two propaganda posters and a bust of a Sentinel head, that remains true in the film, at least for the Mark I unit:

The viral site is now live with a hidden-in-darkness teaser image of the Sentinel head, with an interesting tagline asking Comic-Con attendees to join them near the San Diego Convention Center “to celebrate 50 years of human progress,” teasing the near-future anti-mutant world where we expect much of the film to take place.

The display is labeled with information on the Mark I design, indicating that there will be more designs and if the head is to scale, certainly larger designs. It seems to be a prototype (potentially 50 years old) of what Trask crafts to battle the X-Men and all of mutantkind.

  1. Since the film is set in the early 70s and the sentinel head is called a Mark 1. I would assume that its an early version of the Sentinels & we will see a much better, much more updated Robot by the time DOTFP comes out.

    For the Record I really hope the Sentinels are more of the size of the Robots in Pacific Rim & less like the ones in Real Steel.

    • You’ll be sorry if you think they’re gonna respect the original story. Has never happened in the whole franchise, what makes you think it will this time?

  2. This is going to be amazing, the design seems very thought out but I am hoping that the sentinels actually look like huge giant robots that make the x-men look like ants. This movie will and has a good chance at being a success as long as the story line is good and the actions sequences are fluid and well staged and well done.
