Up until now it's been either concept art, or photos that pretty much look like concept art, but Marvel's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" has finally revealed itself with its initial first-look photos. “There's a whole lot to this movie–it's not a stage play," lead star Chris Pratt told USA Today said of the movie's scope and scale. "You couldn't make Guardians Of The Galaxy the play and put it on Broadway."

Up until now it's been either concept art, or photos that pretty much look like concept art, but Marvel's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" has finally revealed itself with its initial first-look photos. “There's a whole lot to this movie–it's not a stage play," lead star Chris Pratt told USA Today said of the movie's scope and scale. "You couldn't make Guardians Of The Galaxy the play and put it on Broadway."

"Being stuck in space with no accountability makes for a strange combination of youthful vibrancy and cluelessness in a childlike man," Pratt said of his Peter Quill/Star-Lord character. "He does some things that most people wouldn't get away with. But part of his arc is being willing to essentially sacrifice himself for the greater good of other people."

Director James Gunn ("Slither," "Super") is ready for a backlash against comics' best kept secret. "All of a sudden, Arcade Fire becomes incredibly popular: 'I don't know if I like them that much anymore.' I'll happily deal with the cool people not thinking I'm cool anymore and making bigger movies!" the director says with a laugh.

If you're unfamiliar, "Guardians Of The Galaxy" centers on Quill, taken from Earth as a 9-year-old, who possesses a mysterious orb artifact and pilots the Milano, a muscle car of a spaceship. His compatriots include Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon and Groot (CGI characters voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel).

The first trailer hits theaters Friday and premieres tomorrow night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" at 11:35 ET/PT. It'll also be accompanied by a special intro by star Pratt. Check out the new photos below courtesy of USA Today, and the film when it opens on August 1.
