AceShowbiz - "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" has landed on the cover of Empire's October issue. The photo gives a "Terminator" vibe for featuring Luke Skywalker's (Mark Hamill) cybernetic hand and another hand, presumably belonging to Rey (Daisy Ridley) who hands over Luke's lightsaber.
Responding to the image, "The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson jokes that the upcoming "Star Wars" movie would be a "Terminator" crossover. He cheekily tweets, "I love the folks at Empire, this is very cool. Also thrilled to announce that TLJ is a stealth Terminator crossover. Don't @ me."

In other "Star Wars"-related news, the first look at Snoke's personal Star Destroyer has been unveiled. Called The Supremacy, it's revealed through the Sphero app that is needed when you buy one of the remote controlled astromechs.
While the image doesn't provide a detailed look at the massive weapon, the description hints at how menacing it is. "The Supremacy is the main ship of Supreme Leader Snoke. This massive ship is 60 kilometers in length and is the sole Mega-class Star Destroyer," it reads.
Previously, the first look at a brand new, evil BB-8 droid called BB-9E in the movie was also revealed by Sphero, the company behind the remote-controlled rolling BB-8 toy. The adorably evil black droid has squarer domed head and looks menacing with his red eye. It is described as a "rolling menace."

Besides Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley, it will see the return of John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, and Andy Serkis as Snoke.
