No production schedule has been released.

After a week chocked full of Marvel news from Comic-Con, including the confirmation of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, some may have forgotten that Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters in just four short days. Marvel Studios has released a new TV spot for director James Gunn's cosmic adventure, where a group of misfits (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper) team up to save the universe from the nefarious Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace). Check out the latest footage to prepare yourselves for this Marvel Phase Two adventure, hitting theaters nationwide August 1.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team-the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe.

But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

Guardians of the Galaxy comes to theaters August 1st, 2014 and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan. The film is directed by James Gunn.
