The Bourne Legacy gets a first trailer

A first teaser trailer has been released online for The Bourne Legacy , and mighty exciting it is too, as Jeremy Renner sets about kicking arse and taking names.

The footage doesn’t give much away in terms of plot, asides from showing Renner’s character Kenneth Kitson committing to “the programme†and becoming “Aaron Crossâ€.

Ed Norton is on hand to grill Renner as to his suitability, whilst Bourne regular Albert Finney drops in to welcome his new recruit. And most tantalising of all? The proclamation that, “Jason Bourne was just the tip of the iceberg.â€

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Yep, it turns out Jeremy Renner is definitely badass enough to become Matt Damon’s successor! As the trailer helpfully points out, “he’s Treadstone without the inconsistency.â€

And as if that wasn’t enough, a new poster has also been released, boasting the rather catchy tagline, “there was never just oneâ€. Colour us officially excited for the film's UK opening on 15 August 2012.
