Have you had enough of Guardians of the Galaxy yet? Of course you haven’t, which means you’ll be happy to check out the debut poster for Marvel’s upcoming sci-fi adventure. Fresh on the heels of the trailer drop and today’s multitude of short featurettes, the studio has unveiled the first poster for writer/director James Gunn’s (Super) comic book adaptation, and it’s pretty perfect. In keeping with the off-beat tone of the trailer, the tagline for this poster is, fittingly, “You’re Welcome.” Marvel is taking a big gamble on a largely unknown property with Gunn’s film, but everything we’ve seen thus far tells us that the studio is going all-in with Guardians’ inherent weirdness. I’m certainly not complaining.
Hit the jump to take a look at the poster. The film stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker, Peter Serafinowicz, Glenn Close, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. Guardians of the Galaxy opens in 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.
