New trailer for THE BOURNE LEGACY: We may be in for the best chapter yet

OK, so here’s the deal.

Following THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM, the world was anxiously awaiting a fourth adventure for Jason Bourne. Matt Damon was game, but with two separate scripts floating around and Paul Greengrass off the project, no dice. Enter Tony Gilroy. The DUPLICITY director jumps aboard the project, nabs rising stud Jeremy Renner for the lead, and now there appears there was more than one super-assassin in the Bourne Universe.

That in and of itself is enough to cause both intrigue and doubts, but with this brand new full-length trailer, we may be in for what looks to be the very best Bourne chapter yet. Apple has the new trailer, and it is one hell of a spot.

The two-and-a-half-minute trailer gives us our first good look at Rachel Weisz, who appears to be second fiddle in the overall scheme of the picture to Renner’s lead, and also, we are now privy to just how embedded this film will truly be into the Bourne Universe. Even getting a shot of Damon’s mug in a TV report, it appears as though this film takes place during the very end and after ULTIMATUM, or at least that is what the trailer hints at.

Overall, it looks like a great action film. What do you think?

    The action sequences look phenomenal, certainly par, if not better with Gilroy’s past work. It doesn’t seem to offer anything new to the depth of the series (I’ve never read the novels, so I don’t know), same old loose canon badass up against government bureaucrats, which unfolds into a larger web of conspiracy. Like they could’ve throw an Alien invasion or something in there, (har-har). Looks like a decent Big Screen banger for the summer.
