A few new Guardians of the Galaxy images from director James Gunn’s Marvel adaptation have arrived, as anticipation for the space-set adventure continues to grow.  These new images give us a couple of better looks at titular team members Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), and with the film’s release less than a month away, I’m enthused by how little I feel like I’ve seen from the pic.  Indeed, Guardians ventures into an entirely new area of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and I’m eager to experience something fresh and weird following the latest string of sequels.

Hit the jump to take a look at the images, and if you missed our recent character profiles, learn more about the comics history of Star-LordGroot, and Drax at the respective links.  The film also stars Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker, Peter Serafinowicz, and the voices of Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Josh BrolinGuardians of the Galaxy opens in 2D and 3D 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.
