Two new images from James Gunn’s upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy have been released online These images focus on the film’s protagonist Star-Lord, played by Chris Pratt.  The photos show Pratt’s character intently looking at an orb of some sort, and it’s probably a safe bet that this orb will figure heavily into the pic’s central plot somehow, maybe even acting as our third Infinity Stone?  Regardless, the main draw of Guardians of the Galaxy is the fact that it’s an offbeat sci-fi story told on an epic scale by the unique filmmaking talent of writer/directorJames Gunn with the help of an eclectic, talented ensemble cast.

The film also stars Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, Lee Pace, Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.  Guardians of the Galaxy opens in 2D and 3D on August 1st.

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.
