Ever since director Bryan Singer started moving X-Men: Days of Future Past into the production stage last year he has been keeping fan anticipation high by posting images from the set on his Twitter feed. It began with a twin shot of both old and young Professor X's wheelchairs exactly one year ago today, and since then the filmmaker has entertained us with shots of Cerebro's construction, Beast and Wolverine in the X-Mansion, and even a reveal that X-Men: First Class' Lucas Till will be making an appearance in the movie. But with the Tweet above, it seems that time has come to an end, as Singer now seems to be totally done with the sets in Montreal and the giant Sentinel robot who apparently lives there. You can see a bigger version of the robot below:
It's kind of hard to tell from the way that it's positioned and its surroundings, but that Sentinel is actually quite gigantic - life-size even. You may remember back in August when Singer posted an image of himself standing with the giant, only making it up to its knees:
For those of you who aren't up on their X-Men history, Sentinels are giant robots that were invented to detect, capture and destroy all mutants. They were created by the company Trask Industries and invented by Bolivar Trask, who will be played by Peter Dinklage in Days of Future Past. The film begins in a horrific future where Sentinels scour the Earth hunting all members of Homo superior, leaving the X-Men no choice but to send Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) consciousness back in time to 1973 where he can hopefully bring a young Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) back together again to stop a historical event that changes the world forever. The movie mashes together the casts of both X-Men: First Class and the original X-Men trilogy, bringing together stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, Daniel Cudmore, Adan Canto, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, and Fan Bing Bing.
The film will be in theaters on May 23rd. Hopefully we'll be getting a new trailer some time soon, but for now you can rewatch the first one:
