Following the release Wednesday of the first Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Empire Magazine cover featuring Jyn Erso and some of her Rebel Squad. Empire has now released the second of the planned six covers, this one featuring Ben Mendelsohn's villainous character Director Orsen Krennic.
Check out the cool cover featuring the amazing Ben Mendelsohn below and sound off in the comments section with your thoughts on the cover and the upcoming film. As always thanks for stopping by EastCoastMovieGuys!
"The cape-loving Krennic is flanked by a couple of Death Troopers, the elite all-black stormtroopers who act as personal bodyguards to the Galactic Empire’s high command. These guys aren’t to be trifled with.
For Star Wars geeks, the new issue of Empire will be an essential purchase, with unprecedented access to the slightly-less fearsome director Gareth Edwards and his cast (including an in-depth look at Bistan, the ‘space monkey’).
It’s available in all good and Imperial newsagents from Thursday August 25 – though subscribers to Empire will be getting their copies a little earlier than that, with their own limited edition cover, to be revealed soon. You can get ahead of the curve by subscribing toEmpire here. Rogue One, meanwhile, blasts into cinemas from December 16."
Here's the official synopsis:
"From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,’ an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves. "
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to hit theaters on December 16th.
