Matt Damon returns as Jason Bourne this summer, the CIA assassin who lost his memory back in the 2002 film “The Bourne Identity”. Based on the “Bourne” series of Books written by Author Robert Ludlum, the previous films centred on his desire to know who he was before he lost his memory.
We last saw Jason Bourne in “The Bourne Ultimatum” after Damon chose not to take part in the fourth film in the series “The Bourne Legacy” which instead featured another agent called Aaron Cross. Best described as an action spy thriller, the films tend to buck the trend of relying on CGI instead of going for good old fashioned stunts, car chases and creative camera work, tied together by a well written script.
We previously had a teaser shown at the Super bowl but now we have a fully-fledged trailer to enjoy. Joining Damon are Julia Stiles, reprising her role as Nicky Parsons, Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander and Vincent Cassel. The screenplay has been penned by Paul Greengrass and Christopher Rouse.
Jason Bourne comes to cinemas July 27, 2016.
