Here’s A Trailer For “The Bourne Legacy”

I love the heck out of the first three Bourne films, and I’m very interested in checking out The Bourne Legacy, the first film in the franchise to explore the Bourne world without featuring the titular character.

Legacy does feature several key characters from the first few films as they deal with the fall out after Jason Bourne’s reckless actions. This trailer does a great job of reminding us about the major players in the franchise while introducing Jeremy Renner’s character as another Treadstone soldier.

Tony Gilroy directs this installment after writing the last two installments. Joan Allen and Albert Finney return while Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz join Renner as Bourne newcomers.

Of all the great films coming out this year, The Bourne Legacy is high on my “Can’t Wait” list.

The Bourne Legacy hits theaters on August 3rd, 2012.

  1. Although I love Jeremy Renner endlessly and cant wait to see this movie I am not a fan of the preview and the way they have the lines going through the whole thing it was very distracting! Love this series though and seriously excited to see it!

    1. I think the black bars are supposed to evoke the solid black lines that redact information in classified documents, but I may be wrong. I agree with you that it is a weird stylistic choice. I hope they don’t do it again for the final trailer
