You know his name, and now he remembers everything. What’s left for Jason Bourne to do? We’ll find out this summer when the fourth chapter of the franchise (fifth if you count The Bourne Legacy) that began with The Bourne Identity continues the path of the Treadstone asset who lost his memory, gained it back, and waged a war against those who turned him into a weapon.
However, a new Jason Bourne trailer shows us that Matt Damon‘s character is going to have to come to terms with the things he’s done. After all, he volunteered for the job to begin with, and now he’s caught up in more danger and intrigue again, this time taking the action to Greece, Las Vegas and more.
Here’s the new Jason Bourne trailer from Universal Pictures:
This certainly shows off a lot more than what we saw in the initial Super Bowl spot earlier this year. Most of the trailer is spent showing off what will be an earlier sequence in the film when the government notices Jason Bourne has resurfaced again. We get a glimpse of all the key players including new characters played by Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and Ato Essandoh, and they all seem to be working for the government.
There’s only one quick glimpse at the return of Julia Stiles as Bourne’s reliable helper, Nicky Parsons, but no sign of Joan Allen yet, even though she’s supposed to have some sort of role in the sequel. We’ve got plenty of time until the movie hits later this summer, so maybe we’ll see her in the next trailer, whenever that hits.
So far all we know about Jason Bourne what Damon previously said:
“Without giving too much of it away, it’s Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world. It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy.”
Snowden is mentioned right way in the beginning of the trailer, referencing a new hack that has taken place that’s worse than what the NSA whistleblower accomplished recently. Who’s hacking the system and why? And what’s Bourne talking about when he says that he volunteered based on a lie? Perhaps he finds out that he was more of a puppet for the government than even he realized before. We’ll find out soon enough.
Jason Bourne arrives on July 29.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
