"The Bourne Legacy" Full Movie Trailers, Poster and Information

When I heard the news that the cast of the fourth movie in the Bourne series are shooting some scenes here in the Philippines, I was surprised Matt Damon wasn't present.

I am a fan of the Bourne Trilogy and it is weird to see a movie with the word "Bourne" in the title without Matt Damon in it.

Why Matt Damon is not in The Bourne Legacy

Here's what I've learned on why Matt Damon is not in The Bourne Legacy movie. Matt Damon was at first with the fourth installment of the Bourne series, together with Julia Stiles and Joan Allen.

Later, Paul Greengrass, the director of the last two movies in the series, announced that he will no longer direct the fourth movie, saying he needs other challenges. Matt Damon followed leaving the franchise saying he will not make the film without Greengrass.

However, Universal Pictures later announced that there will still be a Bourne Legacy movie which will be written and directed by Tony Gilroy, the writer of the last two movies, although Jason Bourne will not be in it.

The reports also said that there are still chances that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass may still do some Bourne movies in the future.

Jeremy Renner: The New Bourne

Now that Matt Damon and Jason Bourne will not be in the new Bourne movie, writer/director Tony Gilroy has created a new hero, in the body of Aaron Cross, played by Jeremy Renner.

Back in 2010, Jeremy Renner reached the height of his career when was nominated for Best Actor in the 2010 Academy Awards for the movie The Hurt Locker, which won the Best Picture award.

He is now riding the waves of stardom. He got another Best Actor nomination in the 2011 Academy Awards for the movie The Town. He had a cameo appearance in the movie Thor, as Hawkeye to build up for his character in the upcoming movie The Avengers. Most recently, he's one of the new members of Ethan Hunt's team in the movie Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.

And now, he is the main character in this new Bourne movie.

However, Tony Gilroy doesn't want the moviegoers to think that Renner will replace Matt Damon's character. He is careful to note that this is not a reboot or a prequel of the Bourne series, rather a spin-off. He emphasized that this wasn't going to bury the memory of Bourne, on the contrary, they are immortalizing it by making it a legend.

The Bourne Legacy Movie Poster

The official movie poster of The Bourne Legacy movie focused on Jeremy Renner, the new main character in this movie.

The tagline "There was never just one" written in the movie poster alludes to Renner's character as somewhat like Jason Bourne. In the movie, Jeremy Renner plays the role of a CIA agent whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.

The Bourne Legacy Official Movie Trailer

This is the first movie trailer for The Bourne Legacy movie. We have not seen any scenes yet which are shot in the Philippines in this trailer, so we are expecting a longer trailer in the coming months which will somehow give us a glimpse of the outcome of the filming done here in the Philippines.

Jeremy Renner plays the role of Aaron Cross, an agent of the Operation Outcome, which is described in this movie trailer as "Treadstone, without the inconsistency." Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.
