First official trailer and poster for The Bourne Legacy starring Jeremy Renner

Feb. 8, 2012by:

THE BOURNE LEGACY has arrived! The official trailer and poster for the 4th film in the franchise series have popped up online and are ready for your viewing pleasure. I won't waste your time. Check 'em out below:

Looks pretty kick ass to me. The pic is written and directed by Tony Gilroy, who wrote the previous three films. I really dug Paul Greengrass's style for the films (although some are pained by the "shaky-cam"), but this looks consistent enough to remain true to the style of the overall series: which is pretty much all about kicking ass and taking names sans a British accent. If ya catch my drift.

Jeremy Renner, aka Hawkeye, takes over the starring role for Matt Damon (albeit a different character) and is joined by some new and old faces from the series, including: Edward Norton, Stacy Keach, Joan Allen, David Strathairn, Scott Glenn, and Albert Finney.

If nothing else, THE BOURNE LEGACY trailer should reinforce yet again why summer 2012 is gonna be a helluva time at the movies.

Count Me In

I'm excited to see what Renner can do. I liked him in the Hurt Locker. I'm sure he will do great in this movie.

Looks descent enough to give it a try.

Side note: I do wish Hollywood was as creative with original ideas as it is with coming up with new ways to milk sequels out of projects.

This will be a pleasant surprise

Renner is good enough to pull this off and good to see Norton back in a meaty role. Although, he should still be Dr. Banner/Hulk imo.

This actually is like the Amazing Spider-man. Looks like they'll be good movies, but at the same time seems really unneccessary b/c a lot of it is the same as what I saw in the earlier Bourne and Spiderman films.

I don't get the hate or doubts about this film. Yes I do think the series with Matt Damon were great, but its quite possible to think they would have created yet another Jason Bourne. Kinda like it makes there are different Bonds or Ethan Hunts.

I truly believe that if they had gotten anyone but Renner for this movie I would have thought the whole idea was bullshit, but that dude is fucking kick-ass. Perfect casting. Looking very much forward to it.

Not bad....

Honestly, I didn't want to like this. I thought it was a bad idea when I heard they were developing it. Of course, it could still stink, but this was a pretty solid trailer. It clearly explains the question we all would have had going into this thing.

nice

The more I see this develop the less I think of it as a cash grab ploy, and more of a kickoff to a bond-style franchise, which I don't really hate.

I was skeptical about this film and Amazing Spider Man...

Now I can say I'm truly excited for this film but still not so much for the Spiderman.

Surprising!

Can't believe this looks good but it does. They got top notch actors for this and it looks suspenseful with less shaky-cam. If the movie is anywhere near as good as that trailer was then this should be as good or better then the other Bourne films.

That makes me laugh. A couple of months ago everyone was against this film (same with The Amazing Spider-Man) and now we get something like 84% green. Happens with so many movies. People bitch then a trailer comes along and suddenly everyon thinks it look kick ass. Oh well, it does look good though.

People are entitled to change their minds. This is one of the few times that what sounded like a cash grab originally may turn into something actually good. As for Spiderman, I have no idea what all the love is for. That trailer looked like a cheap imitation of what spidey should be. How much of that movie takes place under the cover of darkness? Why did the lizard cgi look so bad? Did anyone notice that the eyes on the costume look like the 70's TV show? That movie is not going to be good.

Looks great! Didnt know Norton was in this which is an added plus. I don't get the people confused as to the there was never more than just one tagline. Each of the Bourne films had a Treadstone agent just like Bourne that tried to take him down. Bourne just happened to be the best of them.

hate that it's

called Bourne, just a cheap marketing ploy. They should've just used a tagline to let people know it was in the same universe, or simply use marketing in the trailers -- don't go about the title like that, it just undermines the movie itself. I'm really surprised by the trailer, it's really good and I'm lookin forward to it, but it looks good enough to deserve a unique title, not what it has right now which just screams Bourne without Bourne and undermines it as a whole... I mean really, if

I mean really, if they're successful are they gonna make a sequel called the Bourne Legacy 2? Should've just called this one the Cross Legacy or the Cross Identity or something and continued with that... still, lookin forward to it!

I get where you're coming from. Although based on the book titles I think Treadstone Legacy would have worked. But again it is Jason Bournes legacy so....ah I dunno.

oh for sure Treadstone Legacy would be great!! I mean I understand that apparently this is Jason Bourne's 'legacy' but for one there's a book called The Bourne Legacy but that book is ABOUT Jason Bourne and has nothing to do with what this movie is about so it's kind of weird in that way... nevermind how much this really has to do with it being JB's 'legacy' as I'm pretty sure it'll just be a real stretch of a connection... but we'll see!

Well damn it... That was really cool. I honestly don't mind them moving forward with these sequels but couldnt they have just left Bourne out of the title? Thats honestly my biggest problem. Oh well, Norton and Renner being in a movie gets my ticket regardless.

Its going to depend on the plot and just how it ties into what Bourne did at the end of 'Ultimatum.' But thats a solid teaser trailer for this reboot and hopefully a proper franchise vehicle for Jeremy Renner.

Renner looks perfect for this role. I'm glad this guy is getting more and more roles. Fighting looks brutal, stunts look cool (so far). A must see (hopefully).

This seems to have a Bond feeling,
If the Bourne franchise turns into just that, with multiple agents from Treadstone then I'm on board. I don't want to feel as if Damon has been replaced, id even like a lot of "Jason Bourne" references, we could even see them both in a future movie.

I have never been a fan of the "Bourne" series. After seeing this trailer I must say it's on the top of my list of seeing this year. Renner looks to be the next great action star. Hope Matt is watching.....2012 has a lot of great upcoming releases!

Obviously it seems a bit of stretch suddenly stating that there was several of them Bournes... but once you pass that it looks pretty decent. Nice cast.

Extra Tidbit : How about a Bourne (Damon) VS Bourne (Renner) movie ?

Cool poster and decent tag-line. This could be great, but I can't get around the inherent issues with another rogue asset in the same world. All that stuff.
Then again, a lot of people think the third movie pretty well wrapped up the Jason Bourne storyline. Nice to see Ed Norton in this.
