Can you believe we're only weeks away from the release of a new Star Wars movie? The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly had Star Wars: The Force Awakens on its cover, with some new details on the movie.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has a running time of 2 hours, 15 minutes |

It was revealed that the runtime on the J.J. Abrams directed movie will be 2 hours and 15 minutes, with the picture locked on November 3, 2015. This means the movie is effectively finished, with the team doing some last minute visual effects, sound effects and a final scoring session with legendary composer John Williams.

As for the Death Star, the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly revealed that J.J. Abrams confirmed the First Order's Starkiller Base is another Death Star, but it's much more powerful and different to the previous ones in the original trilogy. Abrams added: "It is very much - and it's acknowledged as such in the movie - apparently another Death Star. But what it's capable of, how it works, and what the threat is, is far greater than what the Death Star could have done. Starkiller Base is another step forward, technologically speaking, in terms of power".
