'Guardians of the Galaxy' Debuts New Pics; Trailer to Premiere Tuesday on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

While Warner Bros. and DC are trying to figure out how to make another Batman movie, Marvel Studios is busy launching new franchises, including the super risky (but also potentially/probably super awesome) Guardians of the Galaxy. Unlike the current crop of big-screen superhero adaptions, Guardians of the Galaxy aren't a well-known property. With director James Gunn at the helm and a cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, Guardians of the Galaxy is on the verge of making a big cinematic debut.

On Monday, USA Today debuted three new pics from the movie. One is a cast shot, which is actually our second look at the entire Guardians crew. There's also a pic of The Milano, the Guardian's ship, and a shot of Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord.

The movie teams five disparate personalities: Peter Quill (Pratt), aka Star-Lord, was taken from Earth as a 9-year-old, possesses a mysterious orb artifact and pilots the Milano, a muscle car of a spaceship. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is connected to Thanos, arguably the cosmos' biggest baddie. Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) is a muscular dude you don't want to upset. And then there are the aliens Rocket Raccoon and Groot (computer-generated characters voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, respectively), who are best pals and potentially the biggest things to happen to pop culture since Chewbacca.

Their stories converge in the space prison Kyln. After the characters break out, they venture to Knowhere (the severed head of a celestial being that serves as a hangout for aliens) and visit the weird menagerie of the Collector (Benicio Del Toro). They also have to avoid two villains, Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), who are in hot pursuit of Quill's orb, which has the power to destroy the galaxy.

USA Today also broke the news that the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy will become available on Friday, but will first debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, with Pratt making an appearance to introduce the trailer. Of course, if you're Internet savvy, you'll find the crazy awesome Comic-Con trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy right now. Hopefully the first official trailer is the same tone.
