20th Century Fox has moved the viral marketing for X-Men: Days of Future Past into high gear. At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, many fans were treated to the various teasers for Trask Industries and their Sentinels. Now, the viral website Trask-Industries.com has been updated to include a detailed breakdown on the company’s Sentinels, their discoveries, and creator Bolivar Trask, played by Peter Dinklage.
The website even features a few clues as to the plot of the upcoming film. Here’s an excerpt from the website 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.
The website also includes a Trask Industries video, along with some new teaser images of the Sentinels, which can be seen below.
The film has a cast that includes Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Nicholas Hoult, Shawn Ashmore, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, and Peter Dinklage among its confirmed cast members.
Scheduled for release on May 23, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past features a script by Simon Kinberg and is said to be inspired Chris Claremont and John Byrne‘s comic book storyline that ran in “Uncanny X-Men” #141 and 142 back in 1981. “Days of Future Past” introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel’s mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels. Bryan Singer is returning to the director’s chair after being absent from X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: First Class, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
