With the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens just months away, new images are beginning to appear from the movie with increasing regularity. Following last week's cover images, Empire has unveiled a new look at Kylo Ren, one of the movie's mysterious bad guys.

The image, part of the British magazine's preview of this winter's upcoming movies, shows Ren (Adam Driver) in what appears to be a forest, possibly following on from his appearance in the first trailer for the movie; there's apparently smoke surrounding him, although whether that's atmospheric or coming from his homemade lightsaber remains to be seen. Surely they're built more safely than that ... ?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released Dec. 18.
