The Bourne Legacy



Universal is going into full marketing mode with The Bourne Legacy. A set of new high resolution images from the film and four new clips hit the web late last night.


Some of The Bourne Legacy stunts in the film are showcased in the  stills and film clips below. Rachel Weisz says while shooting Manila-Shot action scenes, she was not acting. Weisz, who won an Oscar Best Supporting statue for her work in “The Constant Gardener,” said she will never forget the “Bourne” stunts she did mostly with lead actor Jeremy Renner.


“The stunts were the challenge. There are a lot in the film. In Manila, we have this huge chase scene on a motorcycle and Jeremy and I did most of it. We drove through that city and jumped over bridges and crashed into buses,” she said in an e-mailed statement coursed through United International Pictures.

The 42-year-old actress revealed that she and Renner did 99 percent of the stunts.

“I would say about 99 percent of the time Jeremy and I were doing the stunts. Jeremy is a really good rider. He is just very physically adept at stunts. He is agile and fluid and beautiful to watch. I felt safe with him. We practiced for a couple of weeks in a big parking lot”

The actress felt the demands of her physical role quite literally. “You need a lot of takes and your body starts to rebel. You do get some aches and pains. I did something to my elbow while we were running through the streets of Manila. I jammed it and it still sort of hurts. Sometimes you have to look completely desperate and after take thirty, you don’t have to act anymore because you are feeling that way.”


I love it. Films are always better when the actor throw themselves into the film whole heartedly. It brings a certain realism to the screen that is unmistakable. Look for this film to be an action packed affair.
