Gun control, and specifically guns at the movies, have been a hot issue since the tragic theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado yet people still find it necessary to bring their gun to a movie. That plan backfired - literally - on a Nevada man who shot himself in the butt during a screening of 'The Bourne Legacy.'

“The franchise could go on indefinitely. I mean hopefully in a non-greedy way. We didn’t wanna be asking you to buy another ticket on the way out of the theater. But it could go on.”

Now that Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ has reached theaters, we’re starting to look past the year’s most-anticipated film and prepare for the next blockbuster. Ah, summer. There’s always a potential crowd-pleaser on the horizon, and the next one on our radar happens to be ‘The Bourne Legacy.’
'The Bourne Legacy' recently screened for press, and while we have yet to hear word on if it's good or not, we don't really care, because it has Jeremy Renner kicking everyone's butt in what looks to be a high-octane sequel to the popular action franchise. And these new clips and images will hopefully help to prove that.
