Bryan Singer posts an image of a full-size Sentinel

Shows off Trask Industries' finest

Bryan Singer has posted a new image from the set of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, revealing a first look at a full-scale Sentinel in all its glory.

While we were treated to a glimpse of a Sentinel in the recent viral video promoting Trask Industries, it was difficult to get enough sense of scale to work out just how imposing they would be.

The new image certainly allays any fears that the new model is more diminuitive than its forebears, with the giant robot towering over Singer. It's also refreshing to see what looks like an enormous practical model, in this day an age of CGI ubiquity.

The Sentinels represent the height of anti-mutant technology, and are used to exterminate or imprison mutantkind in the film's future timeline. As you can see from that hand-mounted chain-gun, they mean business.

Directed by Singer and co-starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 22 May 2014.

      I think the (excellent) 90s cartoon has really ruined this for me. I'm expecting them to be bigger than five-story buildings.

      I feel exactly the same :/ ^^^ they should be bigger ... nd the fact that it looks nothing like the head from x-men 3 makes no sense (I know x-men 3 is terrible but hello continuity)

      @ georgeWV check the Trask History article on Screenrant: Potential Spoilers!!! That article pretty much covers the change - I think they're going for a different timeline and different models / upgrades of Sentinels, kinda like the Iron Man Suits.

      @gerogeWV if you remember in Last Stand that was a Danger Room programme, a simulation, not real, and it's only assumed that it was a Sentinel. So they can easily get around that, plus if DOFP goes to it's logical conclusion, the future which features the Sentinels is (or will become) an alternative reality. Continuity and what is the correct timeline will be a major bone of contention in this film and it will ultimately fall apart when under scrutiny. There's also rumours that X3 will be totally written out of the timeline (which kinda makes the events in Wolverine null and void too) .... bascially, this is going to mess with a lot of what we have already seen. Singer himself says it's not a sequel/prequel but something inbetween which means what has gone before may be flexible/totally ignored or everything will be relevant ... we'll see come next May

      @trist808 you are totally right as with any time travel stories the future and past and present can be changed and therefore does not surprise me if the original trilogy can be seen a void after this movie, however also with time travel the original trilogy could have been as a result of the future x-men interfering, it's all basic time travel really and to quote The Doctor "Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey stuff" aka Paradoxes. Either way I still think x-men has a long running future ahead of it and I'm guessing could be one of the greatest movie universes out there

      @georgeWW it says SNTL2 on the side, so it could just be an updated model. I really like that they'rer smaller, it allows for more kinda scrapping, as wellas it making sense that they wouldn't be HUGE lumbering robots that tear down entire cities to find 1 mutant
