In the anticipation for the release of the new "Bourne" movie, Universal has just released 5 new video clips of the film.
"Bourne Legacy" is the next big summer event film of the summer following blockbuster "The Dark Knight Rises."
The film is a continuation of the previous three Bourne films and follows the story of the character Aaron Cross played by two time academy award nominee Jeremy Renner. Like Matt Damon's Jason Bourne, Cross is a victim of the Treadstone project and the events of this film are triggered as a result of what takes place in "The Bourne Identity, Supremacy and Ultimatum" trilogy.
