Go Inside the Epic Jason Bourne Las Vegas Car Chase | EXCLUSIVE
After a successful theatrical run, earning $162.1 million domestically and $415.2 million worldwide, Universal debuted Jason Bourne on Digital HD this week, ahead of its Blu-ray and DVD release on December 6. Today we have an exclusive preview that takes fans inside the epic Las Vegas car chase scene. This preview features interview segments with star Matt Damon, director Paul Greengrass, producer Frank Marshall and second unit director Simon Crane.
Simon Crane, a legendary stunt coordinator who has worked on Titanic, Braveheart and Saving Private Ryan before transitioning to a second unit director, reveals in this preview from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment that he can't believe what the city of Las Vegas is letting them get away with. Paul Greengrass reveals that they were allowed to shut down the entire Las Vegas strip, which was filled with several stunt cars and stunt drivers for this thrilling action sequence. Matt Damon reveals in this preview that he can't even "wrap my brain around the scale" of this scene.
Nearly a decade since fans last saw the former operative, the explosive return brings Jason Bourne into a whole new era, revealing key secrets about Bourne's origins to a new generation. The 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD include commentary from the cast, filmmakers, stunt performers and fight coordinators, plus behind-the-scenes features that take viewers inside the making of the film's intense stunt choreography and one of the wildest car chases in Bourne history. Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum returns for the next chapter of Universal Pictures' Bourne franchise, which finds the CIA's most lethal operative drawn out of the shadows.
