Homage Poster for 'The Bourne Legacy'

Here's a fun game: Determine the influences of this poster.

Wait, wait, don't tell me!

There a bit of 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'

There's no missing that 70s spy flick influence, like the popular cross-hair rifle sight motif used in the poster for (the 1973 version of) 'The Day of the Jackal'.

Which was, of course, based on Frederick Forsyth's novel of the same title, which used the same motif on its cover.

The 'jumping man' element, though -- can't place that. What movie poster used that? It's reminiscent of this kind of thing.

I'm drawing a blank on the interlaced letters of the words in the title -- where does that come from? That's more of a 50s or 60s thing.
