“The Bourne Legacy” wasn’t that bad (and it is getting a purported sequel), but it’s still a welcomed breathe of fresh air to see Matt Damon back in action in the upcoming action thriller, Jason Bourne. This time around, however, it seems Bourne has gathered his memories, but is now coming back ‘home,’ with the help of his one-time handler Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles returning) to gather some sort of evidence on the black ops programs under the umbrella of the government which is now faced by Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander. He could be turning over couch cushions in Langley looking for spare change for all I — and most fans, I would presume — care, so long as the series continues to deliver the no-nonsense attitude and action sequences that have reinvigorated the genre. From this first trailer, courtesy of Universal Pictures, it appears director Paul Greengrass (and Damon) haven’t lost their touch after their nine year hiatus, and are indeed delivering that and more. Check out the psyops goodness now!
