Check Out the First Official Still and Synopsis from Guardians of the Galaxy



Our first look at the team from Marvel's second 2014 release also comes with the film's official synopsis.



Though it was later revealed by director James Gunn that the still represented some early CGI work on Rocket and Groot, we have our first official look at the gang nonetheless.


And our first look at the film's official synopsis:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain American 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 org 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 and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
