X-Men ‘X-Men: DOFP’ Goes Viral with Trask Industries written by Sean Gerber July 30, 2013 “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is still several months away, but the film has already inspired one of the coolest viral sites in the history of the genre. Originally launched during San Diego Comic Con, the Trask Industries website is now far more robust. The site now features images, videos, and a full corporate history, including the story of Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage). The timing of this launch is also superb. The “X-Men” franchise needed a boost after the mediocre domestic opening of “The Wolverine” and this site expands on the excitement from that films mid-credits scene. You can check out a corporate video for Trask Industries and Sentinel-filled photos below. ‘X-Men: DOFP’ Goes Viral with Trask Industries was last modified: February 21st, 2016 by Sean Gerber Related X-Men: Days of Future Past 13 comments 0 Facebook Twitter Google + Pinterest Sean Gerber Sean Gerber is the founder and editor-in-chief of Modern Myth Media.

Just my luck to turn to MMM and be the first to comment! Aw well, I’m sure I’ll be relegated to the last word. I usually am. Well, I see a lot of creepy commercials that look and sound a hell of a lot like that these days. Without the giant robots, of course. So far. Naes I for one welcome our new robot overlords. In the third picture, why is the Sentinel standing with the protesters, facing down the police? Here’s a hint: European man purses and skinny jeans= protesters. Well organized phalanx in riot gear= police. stock Thank you, Kent Brockman. Adrian Edmondson Is that Trask in the upper left hand window of the picture of the ex presidents ? These Sentinels look awesome btw . T.J. They really do, and it goes to prove that if you want to make the majority of hard-to-pull-off comic elements happen on-screen, you just have to go for it. Don’t water it down or show it symbolically – just do it. Kudos to Fox/Marvel for having the guts to have legit Sentinels. Michael Lalaian This is the first time I’ve been genuinely excited for an X-Men movie since X2. I get this the same year as Cap, Guardians and Spider-Man? I can’t really complain. Those sentinel designs are insane. Adrian I know everyone is excited for 2015 but I think 2014 isn’t going to be too shabby, either. I’ve watched the leaked The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Comic-Con footage a few times already, I’ve heard great things about the Captain American: The Winter Soldier footage, and this viral site for Days of Future Past looks awesome. I can’t wait to see more. Michael Lalaian As a Marvel fan both 2014 and 2015 look like gold to me! 😀 T.J. Peter Dinklage with a ‘stache > __________ Gerald These are pretty cool images. I’m curious to see how DOFP will get around the fact that this X-Men universe has a weaponized cure for the mutant gene, which would seem to invalidate the need for Sentinals, mutant internment camps, and such. Honestly I’d be fine if the film just dispatched that whole ‘mutant cure’ concept instead of going out of its way to retcon it into the new continuity. Michael Lalaian An easy explanation is that the cure wore off, it didn’t gave permanent effects. That would explain Magneto’s powers and why Wolverine would be intrigued by Yashida’s claim to take away his immortality. Mark-Anthony Love that one of the inauguration. This just made me excited for this movie, as I hadn’t really cared before. stock As much as I don’t mind comic book world bleeding into the real world, I prefer the previous X-men movies use of alternate Presidents and Govt hacks like Stryker and Trask, since I don’t think that any of those real folks would have allowed a Sentinel to have a front row seat at any inauguration, no matter how much protection they offer. Presidents aren’t inaugurated in the shadow of an Atomic Bomb, are they? Not literally anyway. Hollywood cynicism is a little extreme, IMO.
