It's been a week full of Guardians of the Galaxy hype from the first fantastic trailer that was released on Tuesday to today's featurettes showing off Bradley Cooper voicing Rocket Raccoon and Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Vin Diesel talking about their wild space superhero characters from the forthcoming Marvel film. Now it seems the hype machine is finally slowing down with the first official poster landing, showing off the galactic misfits looking like a group of bad asses on some alien planet. The whole deal is sealed by that awesome tagline, not to mention Marvel name-dropping their own franchises.
Here's the first official poster for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy from Marvel:
Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). 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 entire 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. The Marvel Studios film arrives in theaters August 1st, 2014.
