The Weekend Winner is a weekly update here on Caught on Set. Every Monday we will post pictures from the set of the movie that wins the box office battle over the weekend.
After 4 weeks at the box office, The Dark Knight Rises has finally been knocked out of to top spot. This weekend The Bourne Legacy took over the top spot with $40 million over the weekend. TDKR actually fell to the number 3 spot as the Will Ferrall - Zach Galifiankis comedy The Campaign came in second with $27 million.
1 The Bourne Legacy $40,265,000
2 The Campaign $27,440,000
3 The Dark Knight Rises $19,540,000
4 Hope Springs $15,600,000
5 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days $8,200,000

Even though The Dark Knight Rises been out for 4 weeks it's still pretty impressive for a movie to take the top spot. I thought The Bourne Legacy would have a great weekend, but I didn't know for sure if it would win the box office battle. The most surprising move for me was The Campaign coming in second. Any movie with Will Farrel and Zach Galifiankis must be pretty damn funny.

“A Look Back” is a series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com feature weekly. It’s as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take “A Look Back” to the set of a newly released film. Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
Today's new release that we are looking back at is the newest entry into The Bourne Universe. Jeremy Renner takes over for Matt Damon as the main character in The Bourne Legacy. Although he isn't playing the Jason Bourne character, but rather Aaron Cross who was a part of the same program as Bourne. Renner is joined by Scott Glenn, Stacy Keach, Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton.

There has been some mixed reactions about this new release. Many fans of the Bourne Franchise are upset with director Tony Gilroy. The fans wanted another Bourne movie, but they wanted Jason Bourne played by Matt Damon to come back. Hopefully if this movie turns out as good as the others, everyone will want to come back and make another one. Maybe they'll even bring Bourne and Cross into the same movie?

Samuel L. Jackson and fan
Not too long ago Samuel L. Jackson took a time out to pose for a picture with a fan on the set of The Avengers. Not only is he a great actor, but he also appears to be a pretty nice guy.

We have more pictures from the set in the gallery, be sure to take a look around and see what Director Joss Whedon has in store for you. With an estimated $220 million budget I'm sure the special effects will be out of this World and pretty constant. Fresh off of it's Hollywood premier a few days ago, the official US release date is set for May 4. But for many countries around the World, The Avengers will be released almost a week earlier. So yeah, we are a little jealous of you right now.
Also seen on set were Joss Whedon, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo.

One person supporting Renner in the rolse is Damon. He said earlier this year:
"I was always fine with them doing another Bourne movie as long as it didn't preclude me and Paul [Greengrass] from doing another Bourne. From what I understand, it doesn't at all, so that's fine. I really want to do another one with Paul and I'm sure it'll happen some day, but for now they're doing this. I'm keeping hope.
"I'm a huge Jeremy Renner fan, I'm sure he'll be great."

Jeremy Renner is seen leaving his trailer on the set of The Bourne Legacy in New York last week (October 6). Renner is taking the reigns of the popular film series from Matt Damon. He's got some big shoes to fill!

Could we actually see Damon in another Bourne movie? The star revealed earlier this year that he was kind of annoyed that no one told him about the new movie:
"No one told me, literally nobody called me. People think I have inside information, but you can get a sense of where I am in the pecking order. I'd do it again with Paul [Greengrass]. Universal doesn't actually own the Bourne character – the estate does – so technically I could go to Warner Bros... and Universal could read about it online."

Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson
Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson are seen on the set of The Avengers at Bethesda Fountain in Central Park last Friday (September 2). Looks like the film has moved onto Manhattan after spending a few weeks filming in Cleveland (check out The Avengers page for some pics from the Ohio city).
Also spotted on set was Chris Evans - check out the pics in the gallery.
Johansson - who plays Black Widow in the film - told The Hollywood Reporter last month that the highly-anticipated film is sort of a logistical nightmare:
"Yeah, it's a massive production. We have a lot of sets, and all kinds of vehicles and all kinds different sorts of ships and boats."
