The title of the fifth Bourne movie has finally been revealed. The film has been in production for the past few months and is due for release in July, but until now its name has been unknown. The first teaser for the movie was screened during the Super Bowl last night, and confirmed that it is called Jason Bourne. Check out the trailer below:

Jason Bourne sees Matt Damon back as the amnesiac superspy, with director Paul Greengrass also returning to the action franchise. The pair previously collaborated on the second and third films in the series--2002's The Bourne Ultimatum and 2007's The Bourne Supremacy. In 2012, an attempt was made to reboot the series with Jeremy Renner in the lead role, but The Bourne Legacy was both a critical and commercial disappointment.

In an interview with The Telegraph last year, Damon spoke about the importance of the Bourne movies to him, and how he was approaching the role that he hadn't played for nearly a decade. "It's incalculable how much these movies have helped my career,” he said. "Suddenly it put me on a short list of people who could get movies made and so directors called me and that's the best part of it."

"Doing another Bourne movie is exciting," he continued. "Hopefully it will be as good as the others and it stands out, mostly because it's been so long since the last one.

"I trained a lot more than I ever had done before, because Paul Greengrass said that when we see Bourne in the first frame of the movie, and it looks like he hasn't been living well, then we don't have a movie. So he really wanted me to be physically fit and lean, so it was a lot of work for me to get there."

Jason Bourne hits cinemas on July 29, 2016. It also stars Vincent Cassell, Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, and Tommy Lee Jones.
