Bryan Singer Stands Next to a Giant Sentinel in New Set Photo from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

On the Trask Industries viral website, the mutant-hunting sentinels in X-Men: Days of Future Past are listed as 18 ft tall, and it turns out that the production actually built one to scale.  Director Bryan Singer tweeted a set photo of him standing next to one, and it’s almost three times his size.  I don’t know how tall Singer is (IMDb lists him as 5′ 10″), but it doesn’t change the machine’s imposing figure.  Although I assume all of the sentinels’ movement will be handled with CGI, it’s still nice to see a practical figure.

Hit the jump to check out the photo.  The film stars  James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick StewartPeter Dinklage, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, Evan Peters, and Halle BerryX-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014.

    what the hell is this? these sentinels designs are pretty awful looking, hopefully they progress different designs throughout the film’s timeline

      Awful is the perfect word. Truly an ugly looking prop.

    Hopefully is an early design. The torso looks hideous. Hopefully there are different types of Sentinels.

    Relax guys, these things are always made of plasticky stuff. On screen the CGI and sound will convince us of the weight and the metal. I’m betting Wolverine slices through at least 5 of these things.
    The real question is, will the two Magneto’s be BFR’ed for much of the movie? Because wouldn’t they just cream the Sentinels otherwise? Hmmm…

    • Nerdgasm

      Assuming they are made from metal?

      • Littertray

        I have a feeling they may not have much metal in them. If Trask has been researching the mutant gene for so long he has had to have heard of Magneto and of how powerfull he is. Wouldn’t really make sense to create a weapon to fight mutants when you know what one of the strongest mutants on the planets powers are.

    Can you imagine how huge these things will look next to Peter Dinklage? lol

  • Stan

    As always people nitpicking. Can you lot ever be happy? I think they look super cool. Besides the rumours are that the 18 feet tall ones are built in the 70s. And that the future time we will see much bigger and advanced Sentinels. That’s the thing going around now. So we just have to wait and see.

  • bidi

    on the left leg it says SNTL2. so should we assume that’s the mark 2? didn’t it say there will be mark X by the 2020 timeline? and even if that is the final design then that’s still pretty imposing. chill out people

    It’s kinda funny to see how the Facebook comments are all super-positive and the “regular” comments are… not so much. All of that anonymity just pisses us off, I guess.

    I think it looks okay, I’d definitely like to see it in motion. I don’t read comics and haven’t seen the cartoon since way-back-when, so I don’t really get what the big deal is about the sentinels. They’re big robots, and I assume they have some guns and such… but compared to some of these mutants, that doesn’t seem like much. How the hell did they manage to wipe out nearly all of the mutants?

    • MITIOR

      I remember because of the size they were able to overpower the mutants, but also they were too many and usually attacked them when they were alone..it would be cool to see some strategy using these robots against mutants in the new movie

  • MAXI MOUNDS FAN!

    ‘The Wolverine’ is awesome and now ‘X-Men – Days Of Future Past’ looks awesome so far!

    Wait, so who is playing Kitty Pryde? Ellen Page? Is she going to be the central character in the film, because she never struck me as especially believable or charismatic.

    Besides, my ears are still wringing from “Oi’m da Jugganaut, BEYITCH!” *shudders*

  • Zenexo

    Chest piece is awful

  • yth

    I don’t really like the white on it. Looks to much a like a Mac to me, but I guess that’s the idea. Oh well, of course, like any sane human being I’ll reserve final judgment until I see the movie.

    Didn’t realize Pacific Rim was getting a sequel so soon…
