We’re still a few months off from the theatrical release of “Guardians of the Galaxy” and thankfully Marvel is giving movie fans an appetizer to stave off the pangs of hunger.

There’s a new batch of first-look photos as well as a short preview clip, and lead star Chris Pratt is pumped about the project.

The “Parks and Recreation” hunk told press, “There's a whole lot to this movie–it's not a stage play. 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.

As for his character, Pratt noted, "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."

Also starring Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Benicio Del Toro and Djimon Hounsou, “Guardians of the Galaxy” is slated to hit theaters August 1st.
