Guardians of the Galaxy: First Official Image & Synopsis

Posted by The Daily Zombies Wednesday, January 1, 2014

The first day of the year brings us the first official image and synopsis for James Gunn's much-anticipated take on Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy. 

Now that's one hell of a start to kick off the year with a Marvellous bang for the almighty Marvel Studios. With yet another two films from the Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe launching this year, Disney, along with Marvel Studios, has released both the first official image and official synopsis for the second and incidentally, the more intriguing title of the two films, Guardians of the Galaxy.

With an interesting choice of director in James Gunn, a film-maker who first made his career with Troma films followed by numerous critically acclaimed independent titles, Guardians of the Galaxy is poised for some unprecedented space opera fun whichever way you cut it. The last time we checked out the film, it was at Hall H with the Marvel Studios Panel at San Diego Comic-Con when we witnessed the unveiling of official concept art depicting the main cast in their respective get-up as the eponymous superteam. Reminiscent of the concept art, the first official image features the cast in a similar rundown of the "usual suspects".

Hit the jump to check out the awesome image.

From left to right, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, Rocket Raccoon (voice of Bradley Cooper), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), and Groot (voice of Vin Diesel).

For comparison purpose, here's the original concept art for your reference.

And here's the freshly-released official synopsis for the film:

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.

Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, Peter Serafinowicz, and Benicio Del Toro, Guardians of the Galaxy is currently schduled to be released on 1st August 2014.
