The viral website for X-Men: Days of Future Past at Trask-Industries.com has been updated to include several new videos and photos from the fictional company, which created the Sentinels that hunt down all mutants in this sequel directed by Bryan Singer. The videos include the Trask Industries commercial that was shown during the credits scene in The Wolverine, along with a brief nine-second scene featuring Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask, and the first official photo of the actor in character. Plus, the site includes several photos of the Sentinels themselves, and a timeline of how these robots came to be. Check out the videos and photos, then read on for part of the Trask Industries mission statement regarding their Sentinel program.
"In 1973, Trask Industries introduced the first Sentinel production model, the Mark I. Bolivar Trask's groundbreaking research in AI, robotics and autonomous ballistic systems laid the foundation for the world's most capable anti-mutant defense system. Since the program's inception, we've continued to advance our founder's cause through eight additional generational upgrades and enhancements.
As we celebrate five decades of achievement, we also bid farewell to regular production of the Mark I and shift our efforts to full-time manufacturing of the Mark X - our first complete overhaul of the Sentinel line. These highly anticipated units will combine next-generation nanotechnology and bioweapon breakthroughs, promising an even brighter future for the human race."
