Renner talks born again Bourne, Sherlock Holmes 2 to get Hobbit and Dark Knight Trailers and new Prometheus image released
RENNER TALKS BORN AGAIN BOURNE
Jeremy Renner has revealed that the re-boot of the Bourne franchise is "more expansive and bigger" than those featuring director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon.
In The Bourne Legacy, The Hurt Locker star plays Aaron Cross, a contemporary of Jason Bourne - played by Damon - in the notorious Treadstone programme which saw Bourne being hunted down across the world.
"He ends up having a bunch of different names," Renner told Empire. "For fans of the franchise (the movie) has that same ticking clock...but it's a new programme and new characters.
He added: “Yeah, it’s that same deal, it’s just a new set of agents with a different leash. It’s the same tempo and pace but more expansive and bigger. The differences are pretty vast but you’ll know it’s a Bourne movie.”
The movie, due out in August next year, is directed by Tony Gilroy, who wrote the screenplay for the previous Bourne outings as well as helming and writing Michael Clayton and Duplicity.
Renner can next be seen alongside Tom Cruise in the fourth Mission: Impossible movie Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol later this month
THE HOBBIT TRAILER IS HERE - ALMOST
It's that time of year when going to the cinema isn't even all about the feature film - all those trailers for next year's blockbusters are starting to appear too!
Screenings of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, which is due out on 16 December, will allegedly be preceeded not only by the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises but also the teaser for The Hobbit, both scheduled for release next year.
NEW PROMETHEUS IMAGE
Check out the rather scary looking image (left) from Ridley Scott's sci-fi prequel Prometheus.
Entertainment Weekly has delivered a batch of new shots - including this HR Giger influenced effort - from the movie, which stars Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender, Logan Marshall-Green and Noomi Rapace.
The story apparently follows a team of explorers who discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe.
There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
