The Bourne series launched in 2002, spawning two direct sequels and one sorta spin-off. Matt Damon last appeared in the title role in 2007’s The Bourne Supremacy, and to help moviegoers catch up in on his rogue government assassin’s story arc, he offers this handy 90-second video recap in time for the latest entry.
Damon re-teams with director Paul Greengrass (who helmed the second and third entries in the high octane action series) for Jason Bourne, which hits theaters this Friday.
Here is the film’s official synopsis:
Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in Jason Bourne. Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, once again joins Damon for the next chapter of Universal Pictures’ Bourne franchise, which finds the CIA’s most lethal former operative drawn out of the shadows.
For Jason Bourne, Damon is joined by Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones, while Julia Stiles reprises her role in the series. Frank Marshall again produces alongside Jeffrey Weiner for Captivate Entertainment, and Greengrass, Damon, Gregory Goodman and Ben Smith also produce. Based on characters created by Robert Ludlum, the film is written by Greengrass and Christopher Rouse.
