How do you excite a skeptical fan base, launch the fifth installment to the X-Men franchise and stand out at a convention that’s over-saturated with the year’s top entertainment titles? It starts with a giant robot. To get audiences excited about "X-Men: Days of Future Past," we created a comprehensive launch campaign that included a giant Sentinel head at Comic-Con, a cache of online content built around the film's evil megacorporation, and a corporate lifestyle commercial that established the company’s sinister agenda.
 
With no paid media, the X-Men: Days of Future Past launch campaign took the web by storm, garnering over 3 million video views and over 400 million social media and editorial impressions in one week.
 
Sentinels are capable of mobilizing in response to international turmoil at a moment’s notice.
May 18, 1974, Congress passed MACA (Mutant Arrest and Containment Act), deploying Sentinels to the top 5 most densely populated cities in the U.S.
Since their initial deployment, Sentinels have been standard issue in the U.S. presidential security attaché.
