Chris Pratt and Karen Gillan star in new images from Guardians Of The Galaxy

Guardians Of The Galaxy has released a trio of new images online, featuring Chris Pratt as intergalactic rogue, Star-Lord and Karen Gillan as badass baldie Nebula.

The new images represent a couple of new stills from a scene that appears in the trailer, as Star-Lord attempts to get his hands on some sort of priceless artefact (as well as our best look yet at Gillan's baddie).

Now we don't know whether this is intentional or not, but there's something very Raiders Of The Lost Ark in the way Pratt is eyeing up that orb… watch out for boulders there, chum.

We're not sure whether the orb will fit into the film's main plot, or whether its theft is just a way of introducing Star-Lord, but either way, it looks like it's about to get swiped!

Directed by James Gunn and co-staring Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro and Glenn Close, Guardians Of The Galaxy will open in the UK on 1 August 2014.
