We have four great new images from James Gunn’s upcoming ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ to share with you today. While stills aren’t quite as impressive as say trailers, teasers, virtual worlds, or even the soundtrack mix , they still are great to check out! Mainly because many of them are direct behind the scenes shots! Even pre-CGI you can tell quite a bit about how much work really goes into the planning for each scene.

First up we have a shot of what looks to be Peter Quill nonchalantly standing around while Groot appears to be taking down one of their fellow inmates.

Next up we have a picture of Rocket who is doing, something. Maybe that little planting dish in front of him is after Groot got beat down in a huge fight and he’s planting his best friend so that he can recover?

Of course you can’t have a set of pictures without the always amazing Star-Lord! This one is straight from James Gunn’s Instagram when Pratt was trying a prototype of the mask for the first time during a camera test.

Next up we have James Gunn and his dog Von Spears in the “War Room” at Shepperton Studios where all of the action is happening. Behind Gunn is a few shots of various concept art from the film’s locations.

Also one of the best scenes from the trailers is the shot of the Kyln prison where the Guardians are being kept. This is an exterior shot of the rather large prison set!

Finally we have a shot as John C. Reilly who is portraying Rhomann Dey in the film. “Rhomann Dey was the leader of the Nova Corps of Xandar and one of its few survivors. When the Warlord Zorr attacked Xandar, he devastated it and killed many Xandarians including Dey’s wife and children. Dey hunted Zorr and battled him.”

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 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.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ starring Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, and Michael Rooker blasts off on August 1st, 2014.
