2012: A New Bourne Trilogy Begins (Just Like 10 Years Ago)
Back in 2002, America was a nation still reeling from the previous year's September 11 release of Nickelback's third studio album, Silver Side Up. It was the perfect environment for a popcorny espionage thriller like The Bourne Identity to make a killing at the box office, especially when it features Matt Damon riding a guy down a flight of stairs like a magic carpet.
A whole neeeww world!
Ten years and two Bourne sequels later, Matt Damon has chosen zoo ownership over international intrigue. Luckily, the loss of their lead character wasn't enough to derail the franchise, and so The Bourne Legacy was released exactly 10 years after the corpse-surfing original. We can expect to see the first sequel in 2016, which will likely continue the proud tradition of being named after Damon's character despite the fact that Matt Damon does not actually appear in the film.
