Bourne is back: Matt Damon gets his action hero on in new 'Jason Bourne' trailer

Director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon hope to bring the series back to good form after the lukewarm reception to 2012's "The Bourne Legacy."

Jason Bourne is back and bigger than ever. Literally. Dude is jacked.

Universal Pictures on Wednesday released a new trailer for "Jason Bourne," the fifth film in the Bourne franchise. It features riots, explosions and Matt Damon boxing people in the desert.

The film, loosely based on Robert Ludlam's spy novels and also starring Tommy Lee Jones and Julia Stiles, will hit cinemas on July 29 in the US. It's being directed by by Paul Greengrass, who was also at the helm of 2004's "The Bourne Supremacy" and 2007's "The Bourne Ultimatum."

He and Damon surely hope to give the series something of a revival, with 2012's "The Bourne Legacy" receiving a lukewarm reception from critics and being the worst performing film in the franchise at the box office since 2002's "The Bourne Identity."
