With Captain America: The Winter Soldier opening this Friday, I was hoping we would get a new look at Marvel’s next movie Guardians of the Galaxy (yes, I’m impatient). No such luck, but to make up for it, we have some high-resolution cut-outs of the characters from the teaser poster. So if you needed some hi-res Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) or Gamora (Zoe Saldana) in your day, this isn’t so bad. That being said, August feels very far away.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars 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.
