New trailer for The Bourne Legacy with Jeremy Renner will kick your ass around the world

May. 31, 2012by: Paul Shirey

The new trailer for THE BOURNE LEGACY, starring Jeremy Renner, Edward Norton, Rachel Weisz, Joan Allen, David Strathairn, Scott Glenn, Albert Finney, Oscar Isaac, and Stacy Keach has arrived, bringing you all the hard-hitting espionage action you've come to expect from the Bourne series.

Directed by Tony Gilroy (MICHAEL CLAYTON) the screenwriter of the first three films in the series, the film looks to be more of a direct sequel sans the original star than a reboot. 

Check it out:

I think this looks pretty kick ass, although I find the constant references to Jason Bourne distracting, mostly because I'd just rather see Matt Damon back in the role.  I have no problem at all with Renner, it just seems a little odd not having the title character in a film with his name in it.  The Bourne series was the best thing Damon had going.  I get that sometimes you just want to move on, but it's still a bit of a shame.  Hopefully, Renner can make this his own and establish himself for a new series of films. 

THE BOURNE LEGACY hits theaters on August 3, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Would you rather have Damon back or are you happy with a new actor in a new role for the series?

I was sort of with it

until that dirt bike railing grind. Also I really don't like it when they go out of their way to convince you the prior films barely touched "the peak of the ice berg" etc. It just seems like they're trying to cover up for pushing on with a bankable franchise without real inspiration.

With a cast like that, I'm all for it.

I wonder if this will be like a James Bond/Doctor Who type thing, with a new actor taking on the role after 3 or 4 films.

Hawkeye and the (other) Incredible Hulk team up! It actually looks okay, I'm not the biggest Jeremy Renner fan out there and bits and pieces seem a little desperate to want to tie it into the Bourne franchise, but it looks like it might be a decent action thriller. It could surprise everyone and continue Renner's MI:4 and Avengers-fueled winning streak.

Universal needs to greenlight the sequel with both Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner.

This looks AWESOME! Why are they showing clips from the other movies though? Is the timeline the same as the other movies? We don't need Damon for this movie, but a cameo would be cool! Eventually bring in Damon, and Renner for a film!

I think the events in this movie happened around the same time Jason Bourne went back to NYC in Ultimatum.

The bit about 'altering chromosomes' concerns me greatly. Feels inherently out of place.

But then again, the cast at play here is mindbogglingly awesome, and Jeremy Renner even after two Oscar nominations still finds ways to surprise me with his understated charisma. So I could be sold on this if it doesn't look too convoluted.

JoBlo, please ban whoever's spamming this.

Someone is aggressively thumbs-downing the positive replies and thumbs-upping the negative ones. A few hours ago the positive ones all had like a dozen "thumbs up" and now they're all like -9, so it's definitely one person doing it. Pretty pathetic that someone would spend their time doing that.

So the end of "Supremacy", "The Bourne Ultimatum" and seemingly the entirety of "The Bourne Legacy" all take place in the same timeframe? Okay. I just wanted to mention that, but LelekPL said it best, the motorcycle slide and leaps off buildings do seem out-of-place in the series. I'm not sure why, but the "him bending a tree and hitting the ground" thing really didn't bother me. It all just seems too forced. Wanna get sloshed? Drink every time somebody mentions "Bourne". Jesus.

Because Bourne using a dead body to cushion a fall, and him evading police with a Mini-Cooper was pretty realistic, right?

I'll give you the dead man air mattress cushion. But yes, him, an expert driver, could out-drive amateur police drivers. Especially, considering the twisting and turning streets and one-ways of Paris. The fact that the car was a p.o.s. is inconsequential considering the top speed in town was comparable to the other cars/motorcycles.

I will see this because of the open world of Jason Bourne. I prefer Damon to come back, because this is his role, and his role only until the day he retires. This does give he hopes of Damon returning and going head to head with Cross.

Looks like Damon was right about Gilroy.

Because I have absolutely no idea what is going on. I say that in the sense of as the viewer, I should have some small idea of what the plot is about. Not just be subjected to action, talk of Treadstone, absolute confusion as to what the plot is, and...not much else.

That being said, the cast looks great, I like Renner and think he'll do a great job.

Meh

Wait, so this is like, genetically modified sci-fi Bourne..? Okay, whatever, I guess... So we can already tell we get the now seemingly obligatory impossible bike stunt and the falling and taking out the bad guy stunt, I wonder where and when the, "She standing right next to you/We'd be having this conversation face to face," scene will occur in this one.

If they changed the title to Avengers Origins: Hawkeye and kept everything else the same it would be a lot more interesting.

It looks like they're doing a good job expanding upon the Bourne universe, without it seeming unnecessary and tacky. Even though Renner keeps getting these sloppy-seconds roles, it looks like he's gonna deliver as usual. All in all, it looks like another worthy entry, or a competently made "cash-grab" at the very least. Like everyone else, I would kill to see a Bourne-Cross team-up in the sequel, even if may be a long shot (as Damon reportedly seemed pretty unhappy about this).

I really actually have no problem with Damon not being in this. The film may have Bourne in the title, but it's not about him. As it also says, it's about his legacy. Renner's character and the others in this are Bourne's legacy. And Renner is a great action hero. So, I am looking forward to this. I think Renner will give it that new spark and he's always fun to watch, so this should be pretty good.

Damon should have been in this somewhere. If he had any respect for the fans he gained from this series, he would have maned up and at least phoned in some short cameo.

While this still looks like a good action movie, and I've neved had a problem with Renner, the fact that this is titled as a Bourne movie without Bourne in it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. It just seems like such a blatant cash grab by the studio.

I'm kinda surprised that I'm the only one pointing out how corny this trailer looks. Whenever Hollywood starts to get all science-y with chromosomes and stuff it never ends well. And him leaping of buildings, grinding on that motorcycle just seems out of place for the franchise. I hope I'm wrong, I have nothing against Renner in the role, but this does not look good, especially in the context of prior movies.

Startin to really like Rennder.

I gave up hope when Damon left, but then when i found out he was playing a different person and not Jason Bourne I gave it a shot. One reason I approve though is the shot that maybe, just maybe, we can have a future one with Damon and Renner.

Was on the fence before...now it's opening day for me.

So...it's like a "Sidequel" that's taking place @ the EXACT same time as "Ultimatum".

Ok, now this movie is looking LESS like a quick cash-grab w/ just the Bourne name attached to it & looking a lot MORE like a kick-ass installment w/ more of the story unfolding.

Mission: Impossible, Marvel & The Avengers now Bourne...Renner is like the FRANCHISE king nowadays!

I also like the fact that this one looks like its running parallel with the 3rd one and probably moving past the events of the 3rd one. They did this brilliantly in the 2nd and 3rd Bourne films so I'm definitely down with the references. I'd like to see them coax Damon back and run a movie with the two of them. Norton looks great and seeing the cast from the 3rd back is an added bonus.

Matt who?

Looks awesome. I like how they're actually tying it into the events of the previous film(s), too. (Seems like most of these events are occurring as Bourne returns to the city in 'Ultimatium'?) Cool touch, for example: seeing Bourne's name etched into the bed post...and that last shot of the trailer gave be a couple goosebumps! If they make a sequel to this it'd be cool to have a cameo by Damon, like maybe they meet up after the ending of 'Ultimatum.' Or imagine if they did a cross-over and had
