But we still don't know the official plot/synopsis of the movie. Just because they are adapting DOFP, it doesn't mean that most of the X-Men are already dead at the start of the movie. The Sentinels could still be in manufacturing stages at the start of the movie, the whole Sentinel-effect could happen in the middle of the movie.
