Universal has released a new TV spot for Jason Bourne, and maybe a big ol’ spoiler in the process. If it turns out to be true it’s something I’ll wish I hadn’t seen before the movie, so y’all have been warned.
It looks like they’re pulling a Marie with Julia Stiles‘ Nicky. Because Matt Damon‘s Jason Bourne is a man who can never know peace, his gets dragged back into the madness of deadly espionage and bureaucratic coverups, and once again, some genius gets the idea that “he has to be put down”. In the process, if trailer editing is to be believed, it looks like they take out Nicky instead — one of Bourne’s last remaining (sort-of) friends — and send him on another mission to dismantle the secret organization churning out assassins and generally ruining his whole fucking life. So a bit of a Bourne Supremacy vibe then, I can dig that.
This new program, a laTreadstone and Blackbriar, is called Iron Hand and according to Nicky, “it’s even worse than before.” Well, definitely worse for Nicky if the trailer is to be believed. Jason Bourne also stars Vincent Cassel, Tommy Lee Jones, and Alicia Vikander and arrives in theaters July 29, 2016. Check out the new footage below and sound off in the comments with your thoughts.

Here’s the official synopsis for Jason Bourne:
Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in Jason Bourne.

Frank Marshall again produces alongside Jeffrey Weiner for Captivate Entertainment, and Greengrass, Damon, Gregory Goodman and Ben Smith also produce.
