I’ll admit that I was a bit skeptical when Universal announced a Bourne sequel without Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass, but now the idea is slowly warming up to me.
This latest full-length trailer for Tony Gilroy‘s The Bourne Legacy (via Apple) is action-packed and relatively similar to the previous Bourne entries in terms of style and structure. It does feature possible superpowers, which is new for the series, but aside from that it looks like an exact continuation of The Bourne Ultimatum.
I like that it takes place at the same time as Ultimatum, because now it feels more like a continuation and less like a cash-grab sequel.
The Bourne Legacy swaps out Matt Damon for Jeremy Renner and also stars Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz.
It hits theaters on August 3rd, 2012.
