The countdown to 2014’s summer blockbusters is already heating up, with Walt Disney Pictures releasing the first still from Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. The film stars Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Dave Batista as Drax, and Vin Diesel as Groot, unlikely allies in the battle against evil.
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.
