Watch ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ viral video online, plus new Sentinel photos

The viral campaign for X-Men: Days of Future Past is in full swing, as trask-industries.com gets a major update of photos and a video. According to the site:

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.

In the film, Bolivar Trask will be played by Peter Dinklage. For those tech-heads out there wanting to building your own Sentinels to defend against the mutant threat, they’ve also been kind enough to provide the technical specifications for the robotic machines. We imagine Dual Trask 873K energy blasters are available at Bunnings, right?
