The Bourne Legacy Full Trailer Looks Positively Renneriffic

You can’t watch it here, unfortunately because the movie studio marketing departments haven’t quite figured out that making trailers fully embeddable results in bigger market saturation, but you can watch the new trailer over on Apple, where it’s very pretty. What does it tell us? A few things, like: Bourne Legacy seems to take place concurrently with The Bourne Identity. Renner plays one of the many Treadstone black ops and when Jason Bourne turns on the CIA, they have to kill off all the black ops. Renner, presumably, is one of two who survives, and he does so with the assistance of Rachel Weisz, who is responsible for the genetic engineering involved in Treadstone (and thus, is also on a death list).

It looks very Greengrassian (shaky cam alert), and Renner certainly pulls off the quick, compact Matt Damon moves. I don’t love the idea of a new Bourne film without Damon, the trailer at least suggests that they’ve captured the spirit of the earlier entries.
