The Bourne Legacy Teaser Trailer and Poster

Universal have unveiled a teaser trailer and poster to what is set to be one of their biggest blockbusters of the summer, The Bourne Legacy.

While there is a Bourne Legacy novel by Robert Ludlum, this is apparently an original story that introduces us to a new hero, with Jeremy Renner in the lead, calling himself Kenneth Kitson… if that is his real name. Described as, “an outcome agent,” he is propelled into a life-or-death scenario that has been triggered by the events of the first three films.

Despite the title, it has been reported that Jason Bourne will not feature in the film, which is simply a continuation of the franchise. As if to tell us that this film is on a completely different level, we’re told that, “Jason Bourne was the tip of the iceberg.

The trailer shows flashbacks to Reiner’s character volunteering to be a part of a certain program, followed by a montage of fighting, shooting and a nifty moment involving a fire extinguisher and a nail! Click play below, or you can download Quicktime HD versions over at Apple.

The film also stars Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton and brings back Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Albert Finney. 

Written and directed by Tony Gilroy, The Bourne Legacy opens in the US on August 3rd and in the UK on August 17th.
