A brand new featurette has been released for Jason Bourne, and it takes us behind the scenes of the movie’s huge chase sequence which was shot on location on the Las Vegas strip. It features Matt Damon squaring off with Vincent Cassel’s villainous character, and includes comments from both them and second unit director Simon Crane.
The Jason Bourne cast is made up of names like Alicia Vikander, Scott Shepherd, Tommy Lee Jones and Julia Stiles, so there are a lot of reasons to be excited for the movie beyond just this sure to be memorable action sequence. Still, based on past experience, it’s pretty much a guarantee that it will end up being the biggest talking point when all is said and done.
Despite being rumoured for years, it seemed like another instalment of the franchise revolving around the character it’s named after was never going to happen. Now that it is, anticipation is at an all-time high, but with 2016 already featuring a number of high profile box office disappointments, it will be interesting to see if there’s still an appetite for the spy’s adventures.
Director Paul Greengrass is making his long anticipated return to the franchise with Jason Bourne after helming The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. The film is currently set to be released on July 29th, the date which was originally held by the Jeremy Renner led Bourne Legacy follow-up. However, after the tepid response to that movie, it’s hardly a surprise that Universal decided to prioritize Jason Bourne.
