Trailer Thoughts: The Bourne Legacy

Even though the film series apparently concluded with The Bourne Ultimatum, Jeremy Renner takes the reigns as a new superspy, who to aims to continue The Bourne Legacy.

There is not much plot given in this teaser trailer, which introduces the character of Aaron Cross, who is in a program similar to the one Jason Bourne was in.  Many supporting cast from the previous films, such as Joan Allen and Albert Finney, return in this film and are joined by new cast members Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton.

While it may seem like this film is way to cash-in on the Bourne franchise without Matt Damon, the film doesn’t look to be half bad and will probably end up being a decent follow-up.

The Bourne Legacy opens on August 3.
