Psycho Titles + Blockbuster Spies = First Bourne Legacy Trailer
There are no new ideas in Hollywood, hence a Bourne franchise reboot whose first trailer -- just released via Apple -- borrows somewhat heavily from the opening titles of Psycho. (At least they're both Universal films, right? Score one for synergy!) But that's immaterial here after a certain point, probably around the time when Stacy Keach is all WHO IS HE? or when a house blows up or simply when Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross is revealed in all his rifle-toting, tree-hopping glory. Who can resist?
Anyway, the whole gang's here: Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Albert Finney from the original series; Keach, Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton from the new generation... everyone but Matt Damon, I guess. Oh, and who's missing the nauseating promise of more shaky-cam stylings from director Paul Greengrass, replaced here by Bourne screenwriting vet Tony Gilroy? Good, me neither.
