Star Wars

It's a Chrometrooper! One of the many new characters we'll be meeting in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens is this bad guy (she's part of the "First Order" not the "Empire" anymore) nicknamed the "Chromtrooper", played by Gwendoline Christie (of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, "Game of Thrones"), who wears a chrome stormtrooper outfit and carries a big gun. The caption from the reveal at Vanity Fair (as part of the Annie Leibovitz photo spread) only states: "First Order officer Captain Phasma surveys the rubble following an attack." Sleek. I wish we could see her without the mask! Very interesting.

Here's the new photo of Gwendoline Christie as the Chrometrooper - scanned from Vanity Fair. This goes with all the other new Annie Leibovitz photos taken for the magazine, including that epic cover shot.

You can still catch the second teaser trailer for The Force Awakens here in our Star Wars category.

Chrometrooper - The Force Awakens

For reference, above is from the second teaser trailer for The Force Awakens showing that Chrometrooper.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, continuing the beloved original trilogy about Luke, Leia, Han & Chewie that ended in 1983, is directed by J.J. Abrams, of the films Mission: Impossible 3, Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness. The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi, The Big Chill, The Bodyguard) and J.J. Abrams, with Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm producing. This debut is the beginning of a brand new saga, with another trilogy planned for this storyline, not to mention other standalone movies in this universe. Disney, after acquiring Lucasfilm, will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters worldwide on December 18th, 2015.

    I've just realised how much the chrome look reminds me of the original Cylons from Battlestar Galatica
    • Swanland
      It's like a Cylon with the face of a bullfrog in front of the Temple of Doom. So 20th Century. Cheesy.

    Captain Phasma? REALLY? Oh well. With Count Dooku, Greedo, etc. we should have expected these kinda names. PS: By your chrome powers combined... I AM CAPTAIN PHASMA!!!

    • Mark Brackney
      The Sand Snakes got you hyped up, huh?
    This is going to look way better moving, on screen. Stills of this kind of costuming look like chintzy plastic.
  • grimjob
    I sure do love Star Wars.
  • redskulllives
    Is her vage chrome too?
  • bumboclot
    Most badass sword fighter in the GOT universe. Makes sense they give her a gun.
    • Mark Brackney
      *Eh*. Really want her and Obara to get into a duel, somehow. It would make sense, story-wise.
  • New commenting system stinks
  • MaqueeStalker
    I can't wait to watch her showdowns with "Firefox-Trooper" and "Internet Explorer-Trooper".
  • Mark Brackney
    For if anyone, ANYONE, could play a female Stormtrooper, it would be Brienne (of Tarth). Hell, she would probably make the ENTIRE movie, at least for me.
  • redskulllives
    Is here Vag3 CHROME too?????
