New Image From 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Proves That Glass Prisons Are So Hot Right Now

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.

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.

Over the weekend, select, very special people got to see the first nine minutes of the movie: a taster that that will screen in IMAX in front of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" this weekend, and while they were allowed to report on it, in some Kafka-esque request, J.J. Abrams asked that specific scenes not be discussed. So, this led to comparisons of "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" and "Up" being thrown around without much meaning to them. Anyway, a first official still has arrived for the rest of us, with Benedict Cumberbatch's mysterious villain credited as 'John Harrison.' Ha ha ha because we bet it's a decoy name or something.

But with Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) looking on, it looks like the glass enclosure has struck again! Will Not-Khan escape from it? Do we even have to ask? "Star Trek Into Darkness" boldly goes on May 17, 2013. [ComingSoon]
