STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS – First Order Stormtroopers Assemble in New Image

     August 10, 2015


Hidden within the new TV spot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens that swept across the internet earlier today was a brief shot of the First Order Stormtroopers assembling en masse. Now we’ve got a hi-res image of that very scene to share with you. Not only does it feature an impressive display of the Empire’s shock troops and laser cannon fodder, it also hides some familiar-yet-redesigned vehicles on the periphery. You’ll also notice the back of the shiny, polished helmet belonging to, presumably, Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie).

Directed by J.J. Abrams, the film also stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Carrie FisherHarrison Ford Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, and Max Von SydowStar Wars: The Force Awakens opens in traditional theaters and IMAX on December 18th.

Here’s a look at the newly released scene from Star Wars: The Force Awakens:

Also, notice the red Pauldrons that some of these Stormtroopers are wearing. Do you think it denotes Captains, maybe rifle-bearing field troops, or even Incinerator Stormtroopers?
