Universal has announced that they will be delaying the August 3 release of "The Bourne Legacy". The delay is due to the release of Son'y "Total Recall" and Warner Bros/Legendary's "The Dark Knight Rises".
"Just as THE AVENGERS demonstrated marketplace sustainability that well outpaced traditional patterns earlier this summer, the industry expects a similar trajectory for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Moving one week further from its release will give THE BOURNE LEGACY an even greater opportunity to maximize its opening box office potential. Moving to August 10 will also allow us to extend valuable promotion for the film across all NBCUniversal platforms during the Olympics, which will dominate television and digital audiences beginning July 27. We are excited about this new chapter in our BOURNE franchise and confident that August 10 is the right date for our film and for our industry as a whole."
The fourth film in the franchise will star Jeremy Renner.
