Universal has released four new clips and a featurette for the director Tony Gilroy’s THE BOURNE LEGACY. Check them out below -- the featurette is especially interesting since it explains how LEGACY isn’t really a sequel but a side-quel to THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM – and try your best to not be too shocked that Gilroy has actually made a Bourne-less Bourne sequel look pretty damn awesome. THE NEXT KARATE KID this ain’t.
PLOT SYNOPSIS: 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. For The Bourne Legacy, 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.
