WATCH: Matt Damon is back as Jason Bourne in new film teaser
MANILA, Philippines – At long last, Jason Bourne is back.
In a 30-second teaser dropped during Super Bowl 50, Matt Damon slips back into role of the titular CIA mercenary with a memory loss problem. Only now, he claims that he remembers everything.
Titled Jason Bourne, the upcoming film sees the return of Damon to the character since 2007 with The Bourne Ultimatum, the third in a trilogy based on Robert Ludlum’s novels.
In 2012, The Bourne Legacy, the fourth in the film series, was released with Jeremy Renner playing a fugitive of sorts: Aaron Cross. Back then, Damon opted not to return to the action franchise, citing the need for a "something completely new" through a GQ interview.

“The world is at war. We need the perfect weapon,” says a female voiceover.
A lot of punches land like meteors, as Bourne spars with several men. Jason Bourne is definitely back.
