Marvel Studios has released four new images from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, two of which are official stills and two of which go behind the scenes.

The most interesting of the bunch is a shot of Chris Pratt's Star-Lord running along the terrain of an alien planet, with the wall behind him just a flat wall of blue. It's not all that different from an old Star Trek set. It just goes to show how much post-production work goes into making movie look as polished as the final screenshots presented here look.

Check out all four images after the jump!

Director James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, which also stars Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Benicio del Toro, and Lee Pace, opens August 1.
