The Bourne Legacy TV Spots

"Who the hell is he?" Universal has started debuting a number of TV spots for their upcoming action reboot-sequel The Bourne Legacy, and we've got three more that pack a punch. TheMovieBox has collected three TV spots, ranging in length from 30 seconds to about 15 seconds, and they're actually pretty damn good - quickly worth watching. Jeremy Renner stars as Aaron Cross, the hot new elite CIA agent on the run. The cast includes Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Joan Allen, Oscar Isaac and Albert Finney. Despite all worries, this is turning out pretty damn good, I'm excited to see what Tony Gilroy has cooked up. Enjoy!

Watch the three new TV spots for Tony Gilroy's The Bourne Legacy, back-to-back, from TheMovieBox:

Introduces us to a new hero whose life-or-death stakes were triggered by events in the first three movies.

The Bourne Legacy is both written and directed by American filmmaker Tony Gilroy, who started his career as a writer of scripts like Armageddon, Bait, Proof of Life and the original Bourne Trilogy, before writing & directing Michael Clayton and Duplicity. This screenplay, while not based on any specific Robert Ludlum novel, was rewritten until its current form, credited to Tony Gilroy and his brother Dan Gilroy (The Fall, Real Steel). Universal is bringing The Bourne Legacy to theaters everywhere on August 10th this summer.

    Aw man. This takes me back to the whole "The Force/Midicholrians" thing. Jason Bourne was special because we didn't know exactly what he was made of, but it was implied that there was little more extra than just "$30M training." So to have Alex Cross's story explained as a genetically enhanced operative kinda takes the air out of the tires for me. But, I guess they had to introduce this new character in that fashion to keep the franchise fresh..

      Well, honestly a lot of Jason Bourne was psychological training, just breaking people until they could do anything. Making it scifi is kinda bs to the "legacy" of Bourne.
      • SuicidalOptimist
        I dunno...with genetically engineered foods and genetically enhanced farm animals, having a genetically enhanced operative doesn't seem too sci-fi to me, anymore. As long as he doesn't suddenly fly or is capable of Hulk-like jumps I can buy into this easily enough. Bourne might have been the "first edition" of super agents; maybe Cross is the product of the second stage development or something; the new and improved Bourne. I think the whole premise of a super human (so to speak) worked very well in Limitless without being too unbelievable and "out there". If they keep Cross's abilities on that level I see no problems, really.
        • Big Boss
          I can agree on that man. If Renner ends up flying in the second act, I'm done. lol
        • Bandito Juan
          I dunno either, it may be possible sure, but the themes running throughout Bourne is all about what humans are capable of doing and their human failings. Whether it be what the operatives or those in charge, and the nastiness that occurs through their actions. Making it not about the person, but about the biological alterations, means you can't really blame the person any more, the guilt won't nearly be as high on the characters. It could work as a movie, but it just doesn't feel very Bourne to me.

            All of that aside, Ill see anything with Norton, and Renner knows how to play a badass. Ill see it just for the incapacitation of dozens of nameless henchmen

    Satisfying & Stunning Yes , many things changed too risky in Bourne Legacy. Something like Amazing Spiderman happened and I can't say anything more until movie release.Just saying While Paul Greengrass as Top-Class director did great job , beside of him , Oliver Wood as his Cinematogerapher and John Powell as his Composer did outstanding works too. I really impressed with cinematography and score in previous Bourne movies. In Bourne Legacy , I'm not fan of Gilroy as action director , moreover I prefer John Powell to James Newton Howard in Bourne Legacy. Instead I'm in love with Robert Elswit as Cinematogerapher of Bourne Legacy, he did very astonishing work in M:I-4 & Salt & Town & There Will Be Blood. In compare of this two great cinematogerapher must saying : Shaggy camera in works of Oliver Wood was cool and very stylistic (while im not fan of shaggy camera but really worked in Bourne movies, it gives sense of documentary style and increase reality and plausibility in action sequences ) but Pictures in works of Elswit are more slicky , graphically , palpable and artful. I really admire Elswit's works. Edward Norton as Villain is risky choise either because He is always lovable, i mean he is not bad ass. BUT i believe all of this can be turned to something shockingly surprising and I'm waiting there for that. I really have very high hopes for this. I think theme and tone of this Bourne is similar to previous films but definitely we will see Compeletly Fresh Bourne .

      I gotta say, Ehsan, as difficult as it sometimes is to decipher your posts, you sure do know your shit when it comes to movies, directors and the likes. =)
      • Ehsan Davodi
        Sorry for bad writing. I like all of them anyway. Just a little disturbed and too excited too
        • SuicidalOptimist
          Hey, no need to apologize. Obviously English isn't your first language (it isn't mine, either, so I know how it is) and I commend you for not letting it stop you from voicing your opinion. There is no better way to improve on a new language than to just stick with it and speak it as much as you possibly can. More power to ya, dude.

    This guy reminds me a cross between the gay neighbor on Melrose Place and Anderson Cooper. I just can't take him seriously in this role. Come out of the closest.
    • Ur mom
      He said in an interview that he's not gay.
      • Cody W
