Fans of the X-MEN series already know more about the franchise than any video could offer, but it is exciting when parts of the upcoming movie ‘X-MEN Days of Future Past’ are revealed.
The world was quite interested when it was first discovered that Peter Dinklage was joining the cast of the film, though everyone was hoping to learn his superpower, it looks like he is more scientific in nature.
The latest video from 20th Century Fox to showcase the film is a fake marketing campaign that celebrates 50 years of the Sentinel program, which was created by upcoming “X-Men” villain Bolivar Trask (Dinklage) in 1967. That’s why Dinklage looks so….retro.
“Trask soon hypothesized the impending extinction of the human race. His early theories were ridiculed by his contemporaries and with no one to fund his research, Trask cared enough about humanity to invest in the founding of Trask Industries in 1967,” the site states. “Since its founding, Trask Industries has been at the forefront of human progress, partnering with domestic and international governments since the Nixon administration. Trask’s early ambition for genetic progress continues to fuel our technological innovations today.”
The sentinels were of course a big part of the comics, but they were also a very large part of the animated-series. The new project will feature Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Ellen Page, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan and that’s just for starters.
The film is ready to hit theaters on May 23, 2013 of next year.
