Marvel continues to tease out bits and pieces from upcoming superhero space epic 'Guardians of the Galaxy' following last month's debut of the first trailer. The latest batch of photos take us both in front of and behind the scenes with Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, and his crew as they suit up and prepare for some intergalactic action. 

Marvel revealed four new images from 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' featuring two behind-the-scenes photos and two official stills. The behind-the-scenes looks feature Chris Pratt in full Star-Lord gear, including that badass helmet, and he's on the run. The stills feature more of the cast, including Vin Diesel's Groot, Zoe Saldana's green-skinned Gamora, Bautista's Drax the Destroyer, and Rocket Raccoon, voiced by Bradley Cooper -- and he's got the biggest gun of them all, of course.

You can click on the images above and below for bigger, high-res versions. 'Guardians of the Galaxy' also stars John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan, Lee Pace and Benicio Del Toro, and features the Marvel comic misfit heroes, led by Star-Lord, as they team up for an intergalactic mission in the far reaches of space. The film hits theaters on August 1.
