Looking Toward the Future Past of X-Men Movies

Now that the mutant movie series has successfully recovered from the lack of quality of X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, we can all look toward the future of the franchise in a positive way. And directer/producer/franchise runner Bryan Singer has something big for next summer.

That's right, next summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, has the sentinels built by Trask Industries as a big part of the storyline. While these sentinels do look like giant friendly anthropomorphic vacuum cleaners, hopefully they'll look more impressive in action next summer.

The movie is based off the comic of the same name that appeared in the early '80s. Like the source material, the movie will feature the past (from First Class) and an alternate future (probably taking place after The Wolverine) where mutants are considered such a big threat that giant robots were built to kill them and protect Homo sapiens from the supposed Homo superior uprising.
I absolutely cannot wait for this addition to the franchise next summer. And just a few weeks ago, a teaser trailer advertising for Trask Industries was released.

It may just look like any regular commercial for a corporation, but that's what it is supposed to be! This fake ad for the sentinel building corporation is clearly made to make it seem as if this is a real company putting you, the viewer, into the X-Men film franchise. There's now even an official Trask Industries website that (kind of) looks like a real company put it up. It makes the cinematic universe feel real.
But wait, there's more! Tons of pictures have been leaked, as well as some awesome posters. X-Men: Days of Future Past looks to be the biggest movie in the series yet and so far it doesn't look like it'll disappoint.

Two of the coolest posters I've ever seen.
