Universal Pictures has released their first official teaser trailer for Bourne 5 officially titled Jason Bourne. The Superbowl spot is short, sweet, and epic! While no official synopsis has been revealed yet, Matt Damon has said this about the film: the new film picks up with Bourne “in a dark and tortured place.” Twelve years have passed since the events of The Bourne Ultimatum, bringing him into the year 2016, with all the good and bad (mostly bad) that that entails. “Without giving too much of it away, it’s Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world,” said Damon last year. “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.”
Check out the new TV spot below:
Jason Bourne is directed by Paul Greengrass and sees the return franchise stars Matt Damon and Julia Stiles. With newcomers Tommy Lee Jones and Scott Shepherd playing high-ranking CIA officers. Vincent Cassel is the villain who goes after Bourne. Alicia Vikander, Riz Ahmed, and Ato Essandoh also star.
Jason Bourne hits theaters on July 29th, 2016.
