While USA Today has already provided us with a new image from Marvel’s The Avengers, the newspaper also has as part of its 2012 preview revealed stills from several more movies — including a first look at Jeremy Renner in The Bourne Legacy.
Jeremy Renner stars as Aaron Cross in The Bourne Legacy, Universal Pictures’ spinoff of its lucrative action franchise. Directed by Tony Gilroy, who wrote the previous installments, the movie also stars Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton. It opens Aug. 3.
Disney has released a new image from Pixar’s Brave, which stars Kelly Macdonald as the voice of Merida, a Scottish princess who inadvertently unleashes a curse upon her father’s kingdom. It opens June 22.
We also get a new look at Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first part of director Peter Jackson’s two-movie adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved fantasy novel. The film, which also stars Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis and a host of others, opens Dec. 14.
Noomi Rapace looks somewhat perplexed in a new image from Ridley Scott’s much-anticipated sci-fi epic Prometheus. The 20th Century Fox film, which also stars Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba and Charlize Theron, opens June 8.
Universal Pictures provides us with another look at Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Huntsman, which also stars Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth. The re-imagining of the classic fairy tale opens June 1.
