Bryan Singer has posted a new image from the set of X-Men: Days Of Future Past , revealing a first look at a full-scale Sentinel in all its glory.
While we were treated to a glimpse of a Sentinel in the recent viral video promoting Trask Industries , it was difficult to get enough sense of scale to work out just how imposing they would be.
The new image certainly allays any fears that the new model is more diminuitive than its forebears, with the giant robot towering over Singer. It's also refreshing to see what looks like an enormous practical model, in this day an age of CGI ubiquity.
The Sentinels represent the height of anti-mutant technology, and are used to exterminate or imprison mutantkind in the film's future timeline. As you can see from that hand-mounted chain-gun, they mean business.
Directed by Singer and co-starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 22 May 2014.
