The first trailer for the new Jeremy Renner lead Bourne film is out. This is the fourth film in the franchise and the first without Matt Damon in the title role. Take a look and see what you think.


While the trailer doesn’t give much away, it looks like Renner has slid into the role quite nicely. After his supporting performance in the recent Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, we know he’s got the chops to pull of a big-budget action role.

We’re reserving judgement for now.


The Bourne Legacy is set for release in August.

What do you think of the trailer? Are you interested in seeing the film? Or did you leave the franchise with Matt Damon?

  1. I was never a fan of another Bourne film without Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner still hasn’t impressed me (he was ok in The Town). However upon seeing the trailer I really liked it, much more than I expected.

    I think that if you remove the Bourne name from the title then you’re gonna have a pretty good action movie.

    I will probably go see it but try to think of it as a stand alone action movie, unrelated to Bourne. Regardless of the references to Treadstone.

    Nice write up!

    • It’s a pity they didn’t change the name. But I guess the name brings a built-in audience. I think your attitude might be the best way to go into the film.
