X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Poster

Peter Dinklage: Dr. Bolivar Trask



  • Bolivar Trask : There is a new enemy out there: mutants. You need a new weapon for this war.

  • Bolivar Trask : How old is your son now, Major?

    Maj. Bill Stryker : Jason? He's coming up on ten now, if you can believe it.

    Bolivar Trask : Eight years from fighting age. And how many of our sons and brothers did we just ship home in body bags? Maybe fifty, fifty five thousand? And how many more on the other side? Never before, in all of human history, has there been a cause which could unite us as a species... until now.

    Maj. Bill Stryker : You hardly hate mutants, Doctor, don't you?

    Bolivar Trask : On the contrary, I rather admire them, the things they can do. I see mutants as our salvation.

    Maj. Bill Stryker : A common enemy?

    Bolivar Trask : A common struggle against the ultimate enemy... extinction.

  • Bolivar Trask : [to Congress]  When you sent our soldiers to Vietnam without the proper weapons to win the war, you underestimated your enemy. Do it with this enemy and it won't be some skirmish halfway across the globe. This time, it will be for our homes, our streets and by the time you see the need for my program, it'll been too late and you would've lost two wars in one lifetime.

  • Bolivar Trask : Sentinels that transform. Can you imagine the possibilities?

  • Bolivar Trask : [takes out a folder at Congress]  This was acquired from our friends in the CIA. It's a dissertation written by a mutant at Oxford University and I quote: "To Homo Neanderthalensus, his mutant cousin Homo Sapiens, which is us, was an aberration. The arrival of the mutation human species, Homo Sapiens, was followed by the immediate extinction of their less evolved kin." Well, now WE are the Neanderthal.

  • [the Sentinels come on] 

    Bolivar Trask : [to Stryker]  What the hell are you doing? I didn't tell you to activate them!

    Maj. Bill Stryker : I didn't.

    [Magneto appears]
