The first international TV spot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has landed online, and it gives us our first look at new footage from the film since the second trailer debuted earlier this year. Admittedly it’s only about two shots that are new, but the first—which reveals an entire fleet of First Order stormtroopers—is pretty striking, and gives us a better idea of the kind of strength that this new dark force has. Lucasfilm hasn’t yet confirmed exactly when the new trailer will drop, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they unveiled new footage in some capacity this weekend at Lucasfilm’s D23 presentation. As the film’s release is now only four months away, we’re approaching the next big marketing push. Hold on to your butts.
Watch the international TV spot below. Directed by J.J. Abrams, the film stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendolyn Christie, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, and Max Von Sydow. Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in traditional theaters and IMAX on December 18th.
