From Twitter to WikiLeaks, it's getting harder and harder to keep a secret -- especially in Hollywood.

Take Star Trek Into Darkness, for example.

The sequel to J. J. Abrams' smash 2009 reboot doesn't arrive in theatres until May, but that hasn't stopped fans from feverishly trying to uncover key plot points.

Up until recently, Abrams kept those juicy tidbits under lock and key, but then he went and threw Trekkers into a tizzy earlier this week when Paramount released a fresh image from the movie, featuring Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine (as Spock and Kirk, respectively), looking on at Benedict Cumberbatch, identified as a seemingly new character named John Harrison.

Fans knew Cumberbatch - the British actor with the authoritative voice previously known as TV's new Sherlock Holmes - was set to play the film's main antagonist, but up until the new publicity shot was identified, there was heated debate over which one.
