IAR Blu-ray Preview: 'The Bourne Legacy'

Available to purchase on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital Download beginning December 11th is the box office hit The Bourne Legacy, which is the forth chapter in The Bourne Identity series that has earned over $1 billion worldwide and is based on the popular novels by author Robert Ludlum. Academy Award-winner Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) takes a break from playing Jason Bourne so the series can focus on Aaron Cross (Academy Award-nominee Jeremy Renner), another member of the dangerous Treadstone program. 

In addition to Renner, the new film also stars Academy Award-winner Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener), Academy Award-nominee Ed Norton (American History X), and Stacey Keach (Cellmates), as well as returning Bourne Franchise cast members Academy Award-nominee Joan Allen (The Contender), Academy Award-nomine Albert Finney (Erin Brockovich), Academy Award-nominee David Strathaim (Good Night, and Good Luck), and Scott Glenn (Silverado). The movie was co-written by Dan Gilroy and director Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton), who wrote the entire Bourne film series as well as helming The Bourne Legacy

The Bourne Legacy, which takes place simultaneously during the events of The Bourne Ultimatum, pulls back the curtain on a government secret even darker than Jason Bourne (Damon). When Bourne exposes Operation Treadstone, he sparks a bonfire that threatens to burn down decades of research and development into the building of better spies and warriors. It is soon revealed that there are actually a variety of covert intelligence programs – all of which now feel the threat of exposer.  On the verge of having their conspiracy revealed, members of the government’s intelligence community will stop at nothing to erase all evidence of their top-secret programs. With his life in jeopardy, agent Aaron Cross (Renner) must use his genetically engineered skills to survive the ultimate game of cat-and-mouse and finish what Jason Bourne started. 

The new release is available on Blu-ray Combo Pack that includes a Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital Copy of the film, as well as several special featurettes only included on the Blu-ray such as “Enter Aaron Cross,” “Crossing Continents: Legacy on Location,” “Man vs. Wolf,” “Wolf Sequence Test,” and “Moving Targets: Aaron and Marta.” Both the Blu-ray and DVD copies include the featurettes “Re-Bourne,” and “Capturing Chaos: The Motorbike Chase,” as well as deleted scenes and commentary from Tony Gilroy, Dan Gilroy, editor John Gilroy, director of photography Robert Elswit, second unit director Dan Bradley, and production designer Kevin Thompson. In addition to a Digital Copy, The Combo Pack also includes UltraViolet, pocket Blu App, and BD-LIVE capability.
