I will be the first to admit that seeing the Sentinel in that photo with Bryan Singer gave me mixed emotions. For one thing, I was kind of excited to see it was actually built and not just living in a computer. But, it really underwhelmed me based on how it looked. However, I am sure they will do things with it once it is on the screen that will amp up the look. However, Fox wants to get fans more excited about these giant robots and have released a Sentinels first look that shows the mechanics involved.
For those who don’t read comics, the Sentinels are robots created by an organization working in conjunction with the U.S. government to hunt down the members of the mutant population, eliminating them out of the fear the world has for super powered meta-humans.
Movie fans got a look at them in the Danger Room scene in X-Men: The Last Stand, but that only the head in the training sequence.
In X-Men: Days of Future Past – or at least the comic that the movie is based on – the Sentinels were activated by the government but soon developed a mission of their own and almost completely destroyed the United States while hunting down the mutants, killing almost all of them while keeping the survivors in concentration camps.
Boliver Trask, the man who created the Sentinels in the comics, will be in the movie, portrayed – awesomely I am sure – by Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones. Well, now the actual Sentinels’ schematics was sent out in a tweet. There was also a link to the Trask Industries website, where more information about the Sentinels can be found.
