Send in the Sentinels!
The new trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past finally shows us the mutant-hunting robots unleashed by the government — more specifically, by Boliver Trask (Peter Dinklage). Clearly, the Present is one big post-apocalyptic mess; even Old Magneto has regrets. “All those years wasted fighting each other, Charles,” he says… referring to battles over power, biology, and, as it turns out, women.
So Wolverine is sent back to the Nixon administration to right wrongs before Storm (Halle Berry) can be skewered by a Sentinel and mutants find themselves on the edge of extinction. Not everyone is ready to make nice, though, especially Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), who seems to have a growing blood-lust for normals: “I know what I have to do,” she says. “It’s us or them.”
There’s lots of fire, ice, more-obscure mutants, death, and one exploding White House. Click below for the new clip:
