WATCH: Matt Damon returns as 'Jason Bourne' in explosive new trailer
MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – It's been almost a decade since we've seen Matt Damon as super-spy Jason Bourne at full throttle. We had a glimpse in a teaser dropped at the height of the Super Bowl 50 action last February, but now, we get to see more from the upcoming film.
"I remember. I remember everything," Bourne whispers, having once lost his memory. But Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles) replies, "Remembering everything doesn't mean you know everything."
The upcoming new Jason Bourne film sees the titular character on the run with Nicky through the streets of a riot-torn Athens in the midst of a financial crisis. Cars are toppled as he finds himself as the target of a high-octane chase in Las Vegas.
In the background of all this action, an intelligence breach that "could be worse than Snowden" alerts the CIA. Matt Damon told BuzzFeed News: "Without giving too much of it away, it’s Bourne through an austerity-riddled Europe and in a post-Snowden world."
He continued, "It seems like enough has changed, you know? There are all these kinds of arguments about spying and civil liberties and the nature of democracy."
Tommy Lee Jones, a new player in the series, appears as Robert Dewey, the CIA director. He tells Bourne toward the end of the trailer, "You're never gonna find peace, not until you admit to yourself who you really are."
