Now That's a Sentinel...


Doug:  Perhaps to alleviate Karen's fears voiced a few days ago in our SDCC post, Bryan Singer posts this photo of a Sentinel from the X-Men: Days of Future Past film:

Well, I'm sure it looks better on the screen. Here it looks like something the X-Men would assemble for a session in the old Danger Room. And did they salvage that head from an old Terminator film?

It looks plastic. Much like a large toy. I'm sure after it's photographed and CGI is added, it'll look more intimidating. This photo shows you how important lighting is. Because to me it looks like an oversized Transformer. I am sure that model cost millions of dollars and hundreds of hours to construct. Hope the script and movie is something worth our time and money.

You only need to stand in front of the chest section for a few sections to have your hair neatly dried and and styled.

Karen said...

Yes, William has fixated on the hair-drier in the mid-section much as I did when I saw it. I suppose that's for lift?

I don't know...I like the height, but it looks a bit spindly. And why must all robots now have exposed wiring and mechanical bits? Wouldn't it make more sense to have it all safely enclosed in metal? I'm pleased that they're keeping as much of the look as they are though. As FF 4ever fan said, who knows what it will look like after all the CGI is added?

Matt Celis said...

I assume that height will appear larger in the film via computer magic. A Sentinel this size would not be very impressive! I trust you will all let me know as this isn't a film I would pay to see, as I've never been an X-Fan. I'll wait for it to play on cable TV as I did with First Class, same with the latest Wolverine movie. Is that playing yet?

Like Matt, I'm SO not a X-Men fan, so this does little for me.

As for what it'll look like after CGI..?

Hmm, perhaps like ol' Arnold as Mr. Freeze..? Ouch.



("what.. too soon..?")

Wouldn't mind Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy.

I really dig it, because it looks exactly like a giant robot made by a corporate conglomerate trying to avoid consumer resistance would look. It has to be big to be a Sentinel, but in order to make people comfortable with it it has to have bright colors and look vaguely ridiculous. It's like if a Terminator and an iPod had a baby.

The original Sentinals, as visualized by Kirby, from X-Men #14-16, excluding the Master Mold, were much smaller than this model, maybe about 8 feet. Of course, in their next appearance, as visualized by Adams and everyone ever since, they were much larger.
