'The Bourne Legacy' Trailer


[via GeekTyrant]
NICE.

I have always been a huge fan of Robert Ludlum's Bourne series. I started by reading the books -- which are simply fantastic. Although the movies different greatly from the books, I thought that they were equally as good in their own right.

I like these stories so much that I've even defended them against attacks by talking-heads before...

I know, I know. I'm such a nerd.

Here's the film synopsis, which has piqued my interest further:
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.
The flick opens in theaters on August 3, 2012. I'm already popping my popcorn!
