Universal Delays 'Bourne Legacy' a Week to Avoid 'Dark Knight Rises'
 

 

It's a foregone conclusion that The Dark Knight Rises is going to be a juggernaut at the box office, likely topping the charts for two, maybe even three weeks. Universal Pictures knows that, and that's why they've just announced, via THR, that they're delaying the release of The Bourne Legacy back just one week from August 3rd to August 10th. Surely that will give people plenty of time to see The Dark Knight Rises and then be hungry from some Bourne action with Jeremy Renner. That gives the Christopher Nolan trilogy conclusion starring Christian Bale three weeks to rake in the dough after opening on July 20th. More below!

Universal said in their official statement on this change: "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." That also only puts it up against The Campaign and Great Hope Springs. Universal notes that an onslaught of marketing will hit TV and digital audiences during the Olympics starting on July 27th. If that last action-packed trailer was any indicator, Jeremy Renner and Bourne Legacy have a lot of action to deliver, and may be worth the wait.

Only a week ahead? The devil Nolan is going to possess fanboys for at least a month.

Usually a PG-13 helps revenue, but I don't think this one will do as well as the first.

The first isn't too hard to beat domestically at least. I think it will and a strong maybe to the 2nd but definitely not the 3rd.

Wait you mean Expendables huh? Naw it won't do as well as the first.

Yea I figured . I hardly see any promo for Expendables 2 either. Their marketing will have to pick up drastically.

I'm kinda curious how people will respond to the new Bourne. I'm sitting here with like 8 people and just read them this headline and they all said they aren't seeing it without Matt Damon.

TDKR is going to break the avengers record.
BOURNE need to drop 2 weeks after that would give people another movie to see in that span.
