Matt Damon returns as everyone’s favourite amnesiac superspy this summer, when the simply titled Jason Bourne hits cinemas. Following February’s Super Bowl teaser, the first full trailer arrives on Thursday this week. In the meantime, two new teasers can be watched below:
Director Paul Greengrass is also returning to the action franchise. He and Damon previously collaborated on the second and third films in the series–2004’s The Bourne Supremacy and 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. In 2012, an attempt was made to reboot the series with Jeremy Renner in the lead role, but The Bourne Legacy was both a critical and commercial disappointment.
In an interview with The Telegraph last year, Damon spoke about the importance of the Bourne movies to him. “It’s incalculable how much these movies have helped my career,” he said. “Suddenly it put me on a short list of people who could get movies made and so directors called me and that’s the best part of it.
“Doing another Bourne movie is exciting. Hopefully it will be as good as the others and it stands out, mostly because it’s been so long since the last one.”
Jason Bourne hits cinemas on July 29, 2016. It also stars Vincent Cassell, Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, and Tommy Lee Jones.
