We've got our first official look at Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel Comics' scifi epic coming in 2014. We also have the first official description that tells us the plot of the movie.


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 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 - 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.
According to Movieweb, the movie is about a "team of superheroes [that] comes together after Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is thrown in jail, before they all escape to search for a treasure they all want for much different reasons." It sounds like a futuristic version of The Usual Suspects.

I'm not sure how that will turn out. The fact it's being released in August means Marvel/Disney doesn't want to match it up with any heavy hitters.

I'm pretty stoked. I'm not sure how I feel about the visual of Drax tho, something about him is off.

Pratt seems primed for the make-or-break role in this one. If he doesn't work, nothing will save it. Not even Batista!
