Image of the Day: Intimidating The Force Awakens Captain Phasma still

Take careful aim at this killer new shot of Gwendoline Christie's fearsome Captain Phasma from this week's special Star Wars: The Force Awakens issue of Empire magazine.  The mysterious caped commander of The First Order levels her wicked blaster on some poor unsuspecting Resistance soldier amid a fiery battlefield in a scene from J.J. Abrams' new space opera spectacle.   Mere weeks away from the film's monumental opening on Dec. 18, 2015, the heat haze of rabid fan interest worldwide is reaching alarming levels.

Have a peek at Captain Phasma firing her weapon, and try to keep cool until next month!
