With all the noise surrounding the selection of J.J. Abrams to direct "Star Wars: Episode 7," you might have forgotten that the helmer actually has a sci-fi movie coming out this year. "Star Trek Into Darkness" is on the way, and despite some trailers and a even a big IMAX preview that played in select cinemas, as per usual, the secrets are being played close to the chest. But some savvy nerds may have cracked who the villain, John Harrison, actually is.

Starting this weekend, in select IMAX screens across the country, there will be a special, nine-minute preview of May's hotly anticipated sci-fi sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness," in a marketing maneuver similar to last Christmas' "The Dark Knight Rises" prologue, which was attached to IMAX prints of "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol." Last week's teaser of the trailer (or whatever that was) was purposefully elliptical, showing only visual effects-y glimpses of the scenarios that crew of the Starship Enterprise (including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and Zoe Saldana) will face this time around. And while these opening nine minutes aren't exactly revelatory, they do give a good idea of what will be in store for audiences this summer. And based on the preview, we are very, very excited.

There's a hot new trend sweeping the land, and it looks like whoever provides glass prisons for movie hero villains is making a mean buck. After Silva was put in a transparent tube thingy in "Skyfall," and Loki in a similarly see-through contraption in "The Avengers" (and both wanted to be captured and escaped easily... another trend!) it looks "Star Trek Into Darkness" is following the same playbook.

Luke Wilson, Zachary Quinto, Topher Grace, Johnny Galecki and Karyn Kusama...one of these people doesn't quite seem to belong (guess who?) but they are all banding together to make "Invitation."
