Apart from a single shot from an international teaser and a 15-second Instagram clip in August, it's been many months since there was any new footage from the forthcoming Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. This may be about to change however, with reports that a new trailer could appear within the next week.

ScreenCrush are reporting that the trailer will drop on Monday October 19, which will also be the day that tickets for the sci-fi blockbuster go on sale. The site's sources state that the trailer will debut online, before hitting theatres alongside the James Bond movie Spectre on November 6. This will be the final trailer before the film opens in December.

In addition, there are reports that theatre chains are gearing up to sell tickets to The Force Awakens on the same day. Earlier this week, Cinemark accidentally released a Spanish-language graphic announcing the October 19 sale, before pulling the information. ScreenCrush also states that the managers of several AMC theatres have informed staff that tickets will go sale that day.

Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens will be released on December 16 in France and December 17 in the UK, before rolling out across the US on December 18. It stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Max von Sydow, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill.
