Guardians Of The Galaxy: Three New Images Released
Fans get sneak peek of Marvel's latest movie ahead of first trailer premiere...
Marvel has released three brand new images from the upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy movie.
The preview comes hours before the premiere of the first trailer for the eagerly-awaited epic.
In one close-up image Parks And Recreation star Chris Pratt is seen as Peter Quill/Star-Lord while another group shot shows Chris alongside co-stars including Zoe Saldana, WWE wrestler Dave Bautista and a raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper.
There is an impressive exterior view of Star-Lord's spaceship The Milano in the final image.
The movie will see the Guardians escape from the Kyln - an intergalactic prison built on the edge of the universe - and flee to Knowhere - the decapitated head of a Celestial space god.
They are pursued by Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), who are both after Star-Lord's orb, which could destroy the galaxy.
Speaking about his character, Chris Pratt told USA Today: "Being stuck in space with no accountability makes for a strange combination of youthful vibrancy and cluelessness in a childlike man.
"He does some things that most people wouldn't get away with. But part of his arc is being willing to essentially sacrifice himself for the greater good of other people."
Guardians Of The Galaxy is due for release on 1 August.
