Over the past couple of days, we’ve gotten Guardians of the Galaxy posters for Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) & Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana). Today, the other two Guardians, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Drax (Dave Bautista) get their character posters. For those who don’t know, Star-Lord (aka Peter Quill) is a thief who was born on Earth, and Drax is on a rampage after his family was murdered. First, it’s good to know for future reference that “Star-Lord” is hyphenated. Second, I love the red design circling around Drax’s body. To our comic-savvy readers: Are those meant to be tattoos or is that the way his alien skin looks? Either way, it’s very cool.
Hit the jump to check out the new Guardians of the Galaxy posters. The film opens in 3D on August 1st, and also stars Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, and Peter Serafinowicz.
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.
