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-Lord, Groot, 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 Brolin. Guardians of the Galaxy opens in 2D and 3D on August 1st.
