Back in December, we saw Star Trek Into Darkness‘ villain “John Harrison” (Benedict Cumberbatch) inside a glass prison (or more likely, a forcefield; larger point: no bars) being interrogated by the film’s heroes. Today, new images from the film have been released, and we see our villain being flanked by security guards. Last year, audiences learned an important lesson: if your villain gets captured, it was probably part of his plan. Presumably, “John Harrison” is planning to have Scotty go Hulk and destroy everything.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Peter Weller, Noel Clarke, and Alice Eve. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in IMAX 3D on May 15th, and 2D and 3D on May 17th.
