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