Bourne Legacy To Be Shown in the Philippines on SM Cinemas This August 8

Mark your calendars ngayon palang :)

Mark your calendars on August 8, 2012 because SM Cinema will start showing the film Bourne Legacy starring Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weiz and Edward Norton. The movie is expected to showcase action pack plot and amazing stunts. And the most exciting thing about this movie is the fact that many scenes in this movie were shot in Metro Manila and other parts of the country. On August, we will see Manila as represented by a Hollywood movie.




The Fourth Installment Bourne Movie Series
If you have watched the first three Bourne movies, you can easily relate to Bourne Legacy's plot. The first three was Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum. All three starred Matt Damon. Based on the novel series by Robert Ludlum, it tells the story of a man named Jason Bourne who, after being saved by fisherman as he float unconsciously in the Mediterranean sea, found himself deprived of his memory. As the movie goes, he discovered himself to be an assassin. And not just an assassin, but a top assassin trained by the US government under a special program called Operation Treadstone. In the end of the third sequel, Bourne successfully exposed those behind the illegal assassin training program and he goes underground.

In this fourth installment, Jeremy Renner (the star in the Academy acclaimed movie Hurt Locker) will play the role of Aaron Cross, an assassin from the Operation Outcome, successor of the Operation Treadstone. The story tells how he will try to escape the threat of being assassinated as the CIA decided to shut down the Operation Outcome.

See you in the SM Cinemas then!
For me, it's not just about watching Manila as shown in a foreign film. I honestly like the plot of the first three Bourne movies. And I think I'm not alone. Experts-wise, the series received generally positive reviews. Income-wise, the Bourne series is a huge success. Well, I only saw the trailer and it doesn't tell me anything about the plot of the movie. That is why I will definitely watch Bourne Legacy this coming August! See you in theaters then!

Nakita niyo na ba yung bagong trailer ng Bourne Legacy? Pinakita na yung mga scenes na nasa Maynila sina Jeremy Renner. Nakakatuwa kasi nakikita yung mga jeep at yung mga eskinita na tinatakbuhan ni Renner at Racel Weiss. :D I can't wait to watch it!

Confirmed na.. August 5 ang showing:

basahin nyo eto. Check it here.

MANILA, Philippines - "The Bourne Legacy" will have its Asian premiere in the Philippines on Aug. 5 as announced by the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Francis Tolentino in a recent interview with dzMM.

According to Tolentino, the Philippines will be the first country in Asia to screen the action film.

"This will be the first premiere, the Asian premiere of 'The Bourne Legacy,'" he told radio dzMM adding that, "We will be screening the movie ahead of the US release."

Tolentino said the film will have its screening at Resorts World Manila on Aug. 5.

"The Bourne Legacy," which stars Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton, is the fourth installment of the highly-successful 'Bourne' franchise.

It is based on Robert Ludlum's popular Jason Bourne novels.

Hollywood star Matt Damon portrayed the lead role in the first three installments. He reportedly bowed out of production due to a falling out with the film's director Tony Gilroy, who wrote the first three films.

"The Bourne Legacy" is described as a re-tooling of the franchise inasmuch as it deviates completely from the source material.

In "Bourne Legacy," Aaron Cross (Renner) is enlisted under Operation Outcome, a program that is an improvement over Operation Treadstone.

Apparently, Treadstone agents were prone to physical and psychiatric ailments such as depression, anger, compulsive behaviors, headaches, sensitivity to light and, in Jason Bourne's case, amnesia. It is as such that Stephanie Snyder (Weisz), a doctor who has helped create the Outcome agents, has been tasked to design a better program to overcome these obstacles.

But with Bourne exposing the project to the public, the CIA, led by agent Byer (Norton), decides to execute all of the Outcome agents worldwide, including Cross.

Parts of "The Bourne Legacy" were shot in key places in Metro Manila including Malate, Intramuros, Navotas and Nagtahan near Malacanang Palace. Several scenes were also shot in and around Palawan.

A trailer of the movie released earlier showed some of these scenes including a motorbike chase shot in a busy Manila road. The trailer also showed agent Cross in hand-to-hand combat with Filipino police and security guards in what looked like an impoverished residential area.

During the film shoot, Weisz made news when she made public her desire to rehabilitate a local playground. She went on to donate funds that led to the renovation of a playground at the San Andres Sports Complex, which also served as "The Bourne Legacy” production team’s base camp while filming in the area.

Several local politicians lauded Weisz' move.

Not a few who met the actress during the shoot attest to her kind nature, with some Malate vendors relating how the actress would always have a ready smile for them.

Weisz was visited by her husband, British actor Daniel Craig of James Bond fame, and son Henry during filming.

Film producer Pat Crowley admitted to have enjoyed working in the country, citing the efficiency of the local crew. He also lauded the hospitality Pinoys afforded him and his cast. He stayed on after the filming to visit popular tourist spots such as Bohol and Sorsogon.

Renner, on the other hand, was seen hobnobbing with locals in Boracay.

Maganda yung movie in fairness... pero di ko masyado nagustuhan ang exposure ng Metro Manila.
Talagang sa mga squatters area sila nag shooting. don pa sa mga not-so-touristy spots pero bumawi naman nung huli ok na din.
