Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Universal Pictures has premiered the teaser trailer and first poster for The Bourne Legacy, the Tony Gilroy-directed expansion of the lucrative Bourne franchise that introduces Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Avengers) as a new hero/assassin on the run.
The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.
The film, which opens Aug. 3, also stars Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Albert Finney, Joan Allen, Scott Glenn, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac. Watch the trailer below or in HD at Apple.com.
