This awesome lid comes to the Project from comic book geek, former LAT colleague and current senior writer at Entertainment Weekly Geoff Boucher along with an explanation.
"This is a giveaway for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'," writes Boucher. "Trask Industries makes the Sentinels, which are like Skynet [from the 'Terminator' films] plus the androids from 'Westworld' in a way.
Peter Dinklage plays CEO Bolivar Trask in the film."
A sincere tip o' the hat to G.B. for so much geeky comic book goodness.
