‘I volunteered because of a lie!’ Jason Bourne is mad and he’s not going to take it anymore! We have the latest TV spot from the upcoming 5th sequel in the ever-popular Bourne series. And it delves into Jason’s past. As Tom Lee Jones explains, the man has 32 kills under his belt. And that Jason Bourne volunteered for these past missions because, well…He is Jason Bourne.
Matt Damon, who returns to reprise one of his most iconic characters of all time after sitting the fourth installment out, disagrees. He explains that he volunteered because he believed our enemies killed his father. But that wasn’t true. He’s discovered that he actually volunteered to become who he is because of a vast government cover-up. He volunteered because of a lie. And now, he refuses to turn himself in! As Bourne promises, ‘It all ends tonight!’
Along with this latest TV spot, which debuted on Twitter, Universal has announced a special 8-network airing of the original The Bourne Identity. Matt Damon, star of Universal Pictures’ Jason Bourne, will host this epic event beginning on July 16 and continuing through July 24. Damon will also introduce an exclusive sneak preview of Universal’s much-anticipated Jason Bourne, which arrives in theaters on July 29.
