EPISODE VII: THE UK TV MAGAZINE COVERS
The latest Xmas TV magazines have hit the stands this week, and, you guessed it, they're cashing-in on all things THE FORCE AWAKENS. The prestigious and highest-selling TV mag, RADIO TIMES, obviously get the big exclusive cover image- one I've never seen before- featuring Han Solo/Harrison Ford, of which the inside feature talks about the new film and stars and what the saga means to the magazine's film reviews editor, Andrew Collins- who includes the usual and now incredibly tiring let's bash the Prequels rhetoric in his wordage.
TV & SATELLITE WEEK uses the main TFA poster image and surrounds it with artistically clashing images of all the characters from the saga, primarily promoting SKY MOVIES UK's recommencement of their STAR WARS SAGA six-film screenings from December 11th. There's also a preview of the new film, its new young stars, and a talk with Mark Hamill.
Kudos to the magazine for their efforts in recreating the film series classic logo on the cover- not even EMPIRE's six-issue special covers managed to do anything like that!
