Universal Pictures has released a couple of Jason Bourne trailer teasers to announce the release of the full trailer on Thursday. While details on the plot are still scarce, Matt Damon has said that this new Bourne finds the character in a “dark and unresolved place” that will function as a conclusion of the story that began way back with The Bourne Identity, and that the larger narrative would deal with current sociopolitical issues like economic upheaval as well as cyber threats. It’s a lot for a movie to bite off, but I have full faith in Damon and director Paul Greengrass succeeding.
Check out the Jason Bourne trailer teasers below and come back on Thursday to see the full trailer. The film opens July 29th, and also stars Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassel, and Julia Stiles.

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.
