Universal Pictures has played it pretty cool with the promotional efforts for “Jason Bourne” so far. Despite being one of Summer’s most anticipated films, there’s been little in the way of pre-release promotional material. What trailers we have seen have kept things fairly restrained – offering little insight into this new chapter’s story.
That changes a bit today with a freshly released TV spot which seems to confirm some new details about the film which begins with Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles) looking for Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) and inadvertently revealing his whereabouts to the intelligence agencies searching for him.
Why is she looking for him? It turns out that the Treadstone and Blackbriar programs have a new successor – ‘Iron Hand’ which she claims is not only in full operation, but is “even worse than before”. Keen to see the spot right? Well be careful, there appears to be a BIG FAT SPOILER right at the midway point – so much so it’ll certainly upset fans. I won’t discuss it here, but you can see for yourself below.
Tommy Lee Jones seems to be taking on the CIA hunter role (whether his character is more like Joan Allen, Brian Cox or David Strathairn from the previous films is unclear). Vincent Cassel, Alicia Vikander, Riz Ahmed, Ato Essandoh and Scott Shepherd also star in the film which opens July 29th.
