It does not matter what generation you are, but at this point of time, you must have watched Bourne trilogy. If you still haven’t yet, try to watch just one of the movie – and you will feel obliged to watch the other twos.
To begin with, The Bourne Identity (2002), The Bourne Supremacy (2004), and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) are all action movies. The storyline centers on an amnesiac agent whose job is assassinating his targets. But what makes all the three films captivating is catching on the agency’s internal struggle in finding his true self as he was searching his real identity. All the conspiracies in the background are even more engaging. That’s why it is so hard to stop watching the following movies once the first sequel is over.
The fourth movie, The Bourne Legacy (2012) run without Matt Damon, the cast of Jason Bourne in all the previous three movies. Although the conspiracy stories kept snowballing, the absence of Jason Bourne in the movie was a loss.
His Coming Back and More
It doesn’t feel like a Bourne movie without Jason Bourne. And it doesn’t feel like a Jason Bourne without Matt Damon. Thankfully, the whole world will see the same man in the upcoming movie later in July.
The 2016 Bourne movie is more than just the coming back of the character in almost a decade. You should see the cities around the globe, the same way you found in the first three Bourne movies.
Filming, which had begun since September 2015, took place in Tenefire – Canary Island, Paddington Station – London, Kreuzberg – Berlin, Constitution Garden – Washington D.C., and Las Vegas Strip – Nevada. Don’t get this too literally because some real places may be designated as another place in the story. Tenefire, for example, will be portrayed as Athens. Let’s wait and see what everybody will get from England, Berlin, D.C, and Vegas.
Full Team or Not?
Just by looking at the filming places, Bourne fans’ expectation may fly sky high. As a matter of fact, the 2016 Bourne movie has more in commons with the first three trilogies than to The Bourne Legacy.
Paul Greengrass returned on board and directed the filming. Along with Christopher Rouse and Matt Damon, he wrote the screenplay. Since completely different people engineered the Bourne Legacy, the 2016 Bourne movie should be a lot more like the first three trilogies. You should also be able to find the same character: Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles).
Character dissimilarities turn up, though. The CIA officer is no longer Pamela Landy, but Tommy Lee Jones – there is no way it’s a downgrade. Other casts include Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Riz Ahmed, Ato Essandoh, and Scott Shepherd.
The new faces should come with a fresh storyline. Besides, the 2016 movie is a story of twelve-year discrepancy from the 2007 Bourne movie. There are changes, surely. So, isn’t it exciting to wait for what’s coming? Until the end of July, then.
