Following last week’s flurry of character posters, a new Guardians of the Galaxy image has been released from the upcoming Marvel film, revealing an official look at Djimon Hounsou as Korath.  Director James Gunn’s space-set adventure revolves around an unlikely group of outlaws that must work together in order to save the universe, and judging by the emphasis on one specific orb in a number of images and the trailers—and now this Hounsou image—I imagine this is the film’s MacGuffin.  In addition to the close look at Korath, Disney has also released high-resolution versions of the previously released character posters, which provide a closer look at the principal misfits.

Hit the jump to check out the Guardians of the Galaxy image and hi-res posters.  The film also stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Benicio Del ToroGlenn CloseKaren GillanMichael Rooker, John C. Reilly, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.  Guardians of the Galaxy opens in theaters on August 1st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits – Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
