New international poster for The Bourne Legacy

Aaron Cross goes rooftop running

The Bourne Legacy has released a new poster for the Asian market where it appears the film will be marketed as Bourne 4 , with the US title included very much as an afterthought.

The new poster shows Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner) dashing across a corrugated rooftop in much the same fashion as his predecessor used to. They'll never use a pavement if there's a rooftop available, these boys…

The Bourne Legacy will focus on Cross's story, told in parallel to the events of the original trilogy, which sees another government programme churning out a new breed of super-soldier, described by one official as "Treadstone without the inconsistencies."

However, as with Bourne, Cross isn't a company man for long, and when he ends up turning rogue, it's down to Ed Norton's shadowy Byers to ensure he's taken out as soon as possible. Trouble is, there aren't many better equipped to evade capture than Aaron Cross…

Directed by Tony Gilroy and co-starring existing franchise stars Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Albert Finney, as well as new love interest Rachel Weisz, The Bourne Legacy opens in the UK on 13 August 2012. There was never just one...
