X-Men: Days of Future Past

Here at Comic-Con, 20th Century Fox has only confirmed that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and The Wolverine will be part of the big panel in Hall H. But the studio also teased a bit of a surprise. While there's the chance an X-Force movie might be officially announced, there might also be a treat for those waiting to see some footage from X-Men: Days of Future Past. Why do we say that? Well, it's Comic-Con, and we just spotted Trask Industries outside of our hotel. For those unaware, in the X-Men universe, Trask Industries is the company responsible for creating the Sentinels, tasked with keeping mutants in control, and they've brought part of their robot creation to show off, along with some Trask propaganda poster art.

Here's our first look at the Sentinels created by Trask Industries in X-Men: Days of Future Past:

And here's the cool propaganda posters (the first one is being handed out in front of the Hard Rock):

There have been rumblings Peter Dinklage will be playing company founder Bolivar Trask in the film, and that might be officially confirmed if Fox brings X-Men: Days of Future Past to their Hall H panel. We'll be at the 20th Century Fox panel on Saturday, July 20th at 4:15pm in Hall H, so come back for our report straight from Comic-Con. In the meantime, check out Trask-Industries.com and stay tuned for more!

X-Men: Days of Future Past is directed by Bryan Singer and written by Matthew Vaughn and Simon Kinberg. The sequel features cast members from the original X-Men franchise like Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Daniel Cudmore along with X-Men: First Class cast members like James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Michael Fassbender. New cast members include Omar Sy, Peter Dinklage, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart. It's a crowded cast, so stay tuned for any further updates, especially from Bryan Singer, as the film progresses.

    Whoaa!!! this will be awesomee... Somebody know if Dinklage will be Bolivar trask?
    • David Banner
      I'm hoping he's Puck from Alpha Flight; that would mean another Marvel series in the works.
      • toonfed
        He will be, Bolivar Trask
        • Lars
          I am not sure. The imdb entry on Bolivar Trask was done by a fan, not the studio. Singer has not confirmed who he is playing, or has he? I guess we'll have to wait and see. Who else could play Puck? Jason Acuña?

    Never thought the day would come where we can see a full Sentinel in an X-Men film! Not just the head! ( Fuck you Ratner!)

    Why do they need eyes? I never understand this about movie designers.
    • rolyjimenez
      I dont mind the eyes... its the emphasis on the eyes thats bothersome but it still looks kick ass

      Why do movie designers need eyes? I should think that's obvious. ;-)

    This movie will be terrible. You know how I know? Because Brian Singer.

    It warms my heart to see a purple sentinel head... though... it doesn't really look mean. It just kind of looks like a garden variety robot. (?) This is what I remember a sentinel looking like... I mean... you see one of these giant things... you're gonna run.

      I agree. Doesn't really look like traditional sentinel, and although it's not terrible looking, it does look like a generic movie style robot.

    For the love of GOD! Fox give up the rights to the X-Men. You won't get this right.
  • toonfed
    Looking good! I love robots with moustache, and that purple... mmm, mmm.
  • toonfed
    Wait a second! Trask is an anagram for Stark. OMG Bolivar is another face of Tony! OMG i can't breathe. #nerdsarecoming

    JOHN BYRNE AND CHRIS CLAREMONT NEED TO GET SOME ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. Two movies based on their stories and no credit.
