First Official 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Photo & Synopsis

Guardians of the Galaxy made Screen Rant's list of most anticipated movies of 2014 for a variety of reasons. It's the most obscure, risky and different project from Marvel Studios yet, one that meshes together several genres we love. It's directed by James Gunn whose got the unique vision for the ambitious story and on top of all of that, it features an unexpected but inspired cast playing the most outlandish characters in the franchise yet.

The early, conceptual footage that debuted at Comic-Con this summer - just days into filming - blew us away even though it was largely unfinished. It was all we needed though for our first glimpse at Chris Pratt as Star-Lord and the rest of his unlikely team of odd heroes. Today we have our first official look at the Guardians of the Galaxy from Marvel to compare against the concept art.

The Guardians of the Galaxy first-look photo was shot on one of the very first days of filming. It depicts the roster of characters from a brief sequence featured in the Comic-Con teaser footage. Thanks to the recent official confirmation of Vin Diesel voicing the largest of the group, we can properly introduce to you the cast (from left to right: Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, and Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot):
