If that wasn’t enough for you, however, ScreenCrush reports that Universal Pictures just dropped a couple of teasers along with the news that another full-length trailer will arrive on Thursday, April 21.
The two teasers, released on YouTube (embedded above) and Twitter (embedded below), show Bourne in beast mode and stealth mode respectively, but blink more than once and you might miss these lightning-fast spots. At only five seconds each, they feel a bit like when a fancy restaurant serves you a single scallop as an hors d’oeuvre: Not quite enough to satiate your hunger but just enough to leave you desperate for more.

Both teasers play on Bourne’s Bond-like name recognition, as the on-screen text cuts in with “you know” and then “his name” as Damon lands tactical blows, disarms foes, disappears from sight, and generally does his thing.
In addition to the titular hero, franchise favorite Julia Stiles (Nicky Parsons) is also back in the fold, while Tommy Lee Jones (Robert Dewey) and Alicia Vikander headline a long list of newcomers. Paul Greengrass, who helmed The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, is back in the director’s chair and will look to return the series to its halcyon days.
If these bite-sized, Amuse-bouche-like teasers leave you hungering for the main course, don’t worry, Universal has promised to drop a meatier trailer on Thursday, though we don’t yet have any details on that spot.
