The first three Bourne films are hailed by many as being one of the greatest action trilogies ever made, that said, the latest in the series The Bourne Legacy (2012), starring Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Age of Ultron) in the lead role, was not met with quite the same level of praise. It seems Renner’s character Aaron Cross was simply not the substitute fans of the series wanted, in fact really they didn’t want a substitute at all. Since then it seems Universal Pictures and Damon have been thinking, and have come up with a way to reintroduce Jason back into the picture, something the studio had made sure was at least hinted in the 2012 offering.
The first trailer for the upcoming film places Bourne’s reappearance front and centre, and brings back the classic feel and atmosphere of the originals. The footage does well to indicate where the story is going, and show us that there are more secrets waiting to be uncovered:
