July is looking good now that the first Jason Bourne trailer has been released (minus the superbowl spot). In the wake of the financial crisis, Matt Damon returns as the super assassin for the first time in nine years. When the CIA falls victim to a cyber attack Bourne and his ally Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles) are somehow linked, what follows is Bourne doing what he does best. First he takes out the people chasing him and then he goes after the ones in charge, including CIA Director Robert Dewey (Tommy Lee Jones).
Paul Greengrass has returned as Director and he looks to be on true form with both an interesting story and intense action unfolding on screen, including a chase through a riot and a literally smashing car chase down the Las Vegas strip. Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross will not be appearing however he will get a sequel between 2018 and 2020, a Bourne/Cross team up has not been ruled out at this point. Right now I'm just excited to see Jason Bourne back on the silver screen, and if this trailer is anything to go by Jason Bourne is going to be one of the best movies of the summer, maybe 2016.
