After months of waiting, theatres are beginning to ready for the December release of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film, including installing new theatrical posters packed with action in both their portrait and landscape styles. The franchises' most familiar characters are in place, including Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca alongside other dark forces with our first up close look at Maz Kanafa, played by Lupita Nyong’o, and the new weapon that becomes a focal point of the film. The battle between dark and light forces is further punctuated with the glowing colors of their lightsabers that share space with on-going aerial battles. The new posters also coincide with the announcement that a new trailer for the film will air during October 19th's ESPN Monday Night Football game, but we have a sneak peak below to help tide you over. Pre-sale tickets also begin October 19.
