The Bourne Legacy Trailer is HOT!

So by now, everyone should know I'm a movie fanatic, right? Marvel's The Avengers put me over the top when I took that feast in (cinematic greatness, folks). Heroism, action set pieces, thrills, spills, double dealings, a bit of romance, you name it, it had it. Well, after seeing The Hurt Locker a while back, I instantly became a huge Jeremy Renner fan, and I've followed his career path ever since. Not only is he the current go to guy for action, he's figuring into the tailored espionage slot to the point of typecasting and oversaturation, but who's complaining. After co-headlining Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, the man is now the current replacement or stand-in for Matt Damon's Bourne franchise.

It seems from the above trailer that the events in Legacy coincide with those of the previous Bourne film, Ultimatum, hence Damon's mug on the news feeds and references to him being in Manhattan. Aaron Cross, played by Renner, is another Treadstone agent we're introduced to, one is apparently running for his life following the public exposure of Treadstone via Jason Bourne. This forces Ed Norton's character to put out a kill directive on all remaining Treadstone agents, thus begins the current action in Legacy, which strikes me as something out of a Roger Vallon Kill Factor book. Looks quite thrilling.
