Empire Reveals Star Wars-Centric Covers

EMPIRE_OCT15Cover_Newsstand1Film magazine Empire revealed the cover images for its October-dated issue earlier today. Both are Star Wars themed and play up the classic hero/villain dichotomy with characters from the forthcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The villainous cover features Adam Driver's Kylo Ren, Gwendoline Christie's Captain Phasma and Domhnall Gleeson's General Hux while the heroes are represented by the trifecta of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac as Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron. While I tend to lean toward to the design aesthetic of the Empire First Order, that sweet shot of the Millennium Falcon on the hero cover brings back fond memories of building the flight deck in my backyard.

EMPIRE_OCT15Cover_Newsstand2Inside, Empire will feature an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the film, which, as strange as this sounds, feels like Star Wars … even if I'm still cautious about the whole endeavor.

The October Issue of Empire will be on sale August 27th.
