Luke Still AWOL in New Force Awakens Posters

By Gary Cutlack on at

A batch of new posters for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been released, this time using photography to highlight the individual stars of the film. But as with the main trailer, one man's missing. Probably because his face just couldn't take this sort of extreme closeup.

Yes, that's right, there's no Luke again, just like there was no Luke in the trailer and no Luke in the other trailer and no Luke in the teasers and no Luke in the key poster and no Luke in anything. Perhaps he's not in the film at all and everyone's just got confused? And maybe he was only having a holiday in Ireland at the same time everyone else was filming Episode VIII? Is Mark Hamill just a roadie?

Here's another one of the new character posters, this time with the new bad guy in the mask:


Some people think it might be Luke inside that mask, which would be quite a rubbish plot twist as that's already been the plot twist before. We'll know the inevitably underwhelming truth in little more than six weeks. [Sky News]
