Empire's Full 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Panorama & Future Sentinel
Yesterday, we continually posted the magazine covers from Empire promoting the forthcoming summer release of X-Men: Days of Future Past. There are 25 total covers, but when the final one was revealed, we decided to separate it from the pack. Why? Because it's our first look at the sentinels of the future wreaking havoc on Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman and the rest of the X-Men originated by director Bryan Singer. They certainly don't look much like the retro design we've seen from Trask Industries, and have an almost surreal quality about them. Anyway, in addition we've also included a glimpse at the full panorama shot that is created when all of the magazine covers are put side-by-side. Look!
Here's the final Empire cover for X-Men: Days of Future Past revealing the future sentinel:
Production designer John Myhre describes the future sentinels:
"They're biomechanical weapons. We had to come up with what would be the ultimate version that could actually, in principle, stop the X-Men. We started with this idea that they were almost made up of magnetic plates slapped over one another, imagining that the plates could contract or grow, so the Sentinel can be skinny to get through a small space or the plates can open up to become a bigger shape. So they have become virtually unstoppable."
And here's the gallery showing off the entire panoramic shot of the X-Men of the past and future:
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. The present day X-Men are in danger from a mistake in the past, and Wolverine is sent back in time to fix it in order to avoid a dark, terrifying future timeline. Fox releases the film on May 23rd, 2014.
