Death Star Looms Over These New 'Rogue One' Character Posters

With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story less than two months away the Disney-Lucasfilm hype machine is proving as formidable as the Death Star. Within the last few weeks we’ve seen waves of new toys followed by the release last week of the latest one-sheet and the second full-length trailer. Today brings us a series of ominous character posters of the main cast: the band of rebels seeking to swipe the plans to the Empire’s potent superstation and the Imperial agent hell-bent on stopping them. To reinforce the stakes of the virtual suicide mission, each character reflects the plans, each marked by the Death Star (and — spoiler alert? — perhaps marked for death). Yahoo Movies has collected the images here, along with the previously released posters, for your perusing pleasure.
