You know his name.
He remembers everything.
But he doesn't know everything.
That, in three short sentences, is the setup for Matt Damon's return to the Bourne franchise. Damon played the action antihero in three films before he gave way to Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross in The Bourne Legacy. The good news for us all is that Bourne does indeed appear to be back in the latest trailer for this summer's film.
Also back is Julie Stiles who was on the verge of falling off the map of Hollywood completely, but thankfully, she is returning to the big screen and this is the perfect vehicle to launch her comeback. Also joining the team for this installment is the wily Tommy Lee Jones and the sultry Alicia Vikander.
While they will both bring their own flair to the film, the Bourne films have always been about the action and it appears that it has returned to form as well. We do see an older Jason Bourne here, but it's pretty clear in one punch that he hasn't lost a single thing with age.
Jason Bourne explodes into theaters on July 29. What do you think of the new trailer?
