Days Of Future Past Sentinel Blueprint Unveiled
Peek inside the head of a robo-menace

14 August 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: X-Men Movies

Good old Bolivar Trask, eh? For decades now, he’s been working tirelessly to develop the Sentinel program, with the robotic guardians designed to keep humanity safe from the encroaching mutant threat. We all sleep better knowing these hulking, armoured warriors are keeping the peace. And now you can get a look inside one of their heads thanks to a new blueprint online from Trask Industries.

Okay, so we actually know they’re mechanical menaces destined to wreak havoc across the world and plunge humanity as well as mutantkind into a desperate war for survival in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. When that happens, we’ll be pinning our hopes on the very mutants we shunned. Thank goodness, then, that there are the likes of Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart), Erik “Magneto” Lehnsherr (Ian McKellen), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) to figure out a last-ditch, seemingly impossible plan to travel through time and try to fix things in the past, when their younger selves (or, in the case of Wolverine, ageless) are mired in conflicts of their own, and with each other.

Bryan Singer has almost finished shooting the latest mutant movie, which skips between the dark possible future and the 1970s, where the likes of Xavier (James McAvoy), Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) are trying to come to terms with the shattering events of X-Men: First Class years ago.

With Omar Sy, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Boo Boo Stewart, Fan Bingbing and Lucas Till all in the cast, X-Men: Days Of Future Past is set for release on May 22.
