It’s only two weeks or so until director James Gunn’s Marvel tentpole Guardians of the Galaxy hits US screens (it opens internationally a few days prior).  Today sees the release of three character posters.  John C. Reilly’s Corpsman Dey, Glenn Close’s Nova Prime and Michael Rooker‘s Yondu.

Guardians of the Galaxy also stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, Peter Serafinowicz, and the voices of Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Josh Brolin.  It opens in 2D and 3D on August 1st.

Overall I like the look of these, though they’re nothing unexpected given the general aesthetic of the marketing campaign.  It’s worth noting that if we’re seeing posters for characters like this that are (at first glance) relatively minor, we’ll probably be seeing one-sheets for Karen Gillan’s Nebula and Lee Pace’s Ronan the Accuser in the near future.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:

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.
