In The Bourne Legacy, the focus shifts to a new super-assassin named Aaron Cross (Renner). He was part of the same top-secret program as Jason Bourne and poses a similar threat.

Legacy isn't a prequel or necessarily a sequel to the previous movies. But according to the official synopsis, Aaron's "life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films." Perhaps, both storylines bleed into one?

In the following clip, Aaron and his companion Marta (Rachel Weisz) are on the run from some unsavory cops. The duo is backed into a corner and Aaron's forced to use his strength, speed and intelligence to get them out of a bind.

The Bourne Legacy co-stars Edward Norton, Stacy Keach, Oscar Isaac, Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn.

The film is directed by Tony Gilroy and opens in theaters Aug. 10.
