Jason Bourne is back with a vengeance, and he’s ready to kick some ass.
The sequel reunites Matt Damon with director Paul Greengrass, who directed “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum”. It’s been almost a decade since we last saw Bourne on the big screen – the upcoming instalment will be the franchise’s 5th film.
Once again, Bourne is drawn out of the shadows by a string of conspiracies and double-dealing, which means the bulked up super spy will be whipping out his tricks of out-witting, gun-slinging, face-smashing fighting routines again. We’re definitely stoked for more action!
In the 2 1/2 minutes clip, the first trailer gives us a glimpse into Bourne’s – or should we say David Webb’s – latest adventure. Still haunted by his previous outings, Bourne is struggling to come to terms with his current predicament during his pursue in Greece and Las Vegas.
We also see a super ripped Damon out in the dessert delivering a one-hit knockout punch in what seems to be a bare-knuckle fight club. We don’t know about y’all, but it’s absolutely thrilling to see the super spy cracking skulls again. Judging from the brand new trailer, the production nailed the tone and tempo of what fans have come to love about the franchise.
“You’ll find the character – like “The Bourne Ultimatum,” the third act actually in the movie dovetails with the third act of “The Bourne Supremacy.” So technically when the Bourne character disappears, it’s still 2004. So when this next one comes out in ’16, it will have been 12 years – in movie years – that the character as been off the grid. So what’s happened in those intervening years gives you a story,” Damon previously said.
Obviously, watching Damon again is the main draw, but “Jason Bourne” also has a talented assemble of supporting cast comprising of “The Danish Girl” actress Alicia Vikander as a technology-savvy CIA analyst, Tommy Lee Jones as a CIA honcho, and of course, Julia Stiles returning as Bourne’s partner-in-crime, the former CIA employee Nicky Parsons.
