As such, “The Bourne Legacy” opened just over $40m, easily taking the crown away from “The Dark Knight Rises.” and besting alternative newcomer “The Campaign” as well. Still, “The Bourne Legacy” couldn’t match 2007′s “Bourne Ultimatum,” though it did open at a higher dollar amount than “The Bourne Identity” which means the reboot transplant operation has worked, and we’re a go for sequels. Could a second or third film feature a Damon / Renner mash-up? If Universal has the budget and a decent screenplay, I’m sure the gents would at least take the meeting.
I wonder how well it will do this coming weekend? My gut says there will be a big fall off — that the big opening weekend was running on fuel borrowed from the Jason Bourne Trilogy. But I could be way off. We’ll see.
