Synopsis: Picking up around the beginning of its predecessor The Bourne Ultimatum, The Bourne Legacy tells the story of Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), an operative in the CIA’s Operation Outcome, a program that stemmed from Operation Treadstone of the prior Bourne films. When Jason Bourne begins to expose the CIA’s black-ops programs, the organization attempts to cover its tracks by killing off operatives in other programs, including Outcome. After narrowly escaping death at the hands of this effort, Cross begins a globe-trotting escape from the hands of his makers who now want him dead.
