Obviously this is the template for any number of older thrillers (especially the 1970s-types that the Bourne films often try to emulate), but its still dispiriting to see an actress who damn-well should either get her own action film or at least get to play a villain taking a role where she's 'the pretty girl in peril'. Aside from that core narrative annoyance, the film looks okay. I still laugh at how the film seems to be selling the idea that Jeremy Renner's character is "Jason Bourne... IN THE EXTREME!" and trying desperately to convince you that this spin-off makes sense in the already established world. Obviously Universal is very considered about how a Bourne film without Jason Bourne will actually sell, hence the several audio/visual references to Matt Damon's Jason Bourne. As such, the trailer is actually somewhat confusing since it spends its second act rehashing the third film before launching into its own narrative again. Anyway, Live and Let Die 2.0 debuts on August 3rd. As always, we'll see.
