You hear Jason Bourne’s name a lot in the new trailer for “The Bourne Legacy,” but make no mistake, “Bourne” was just the beginning and Aaron Cross — our man Jeremy Renner — is also an emotionally unavailable badass assassin. Rachel Weisz, David Strathairn, Oscaar Isaac, Edward Norton, Joan Allen, Albert Finney and Corey Stoll join Renner in the franchise continuation, with writer director Tony Gilroy at the helm.
