Box Office Top 3: The Latest 'Bourne' Will Give You Serious Déjà Vu
With a $60 million opening, it looks like audiences still want more Bourne — despite this being the fifth installment in the franchise.By Jamal Andress | July 31, 2016
Taking the No. 1 spot this week is another Jason Bourne movie, bringing in an estimated $60 million. Matt Damon has officially reprised his role as the brainwashed badass four different times, but this one's different, right?
"There's a guy who is this former special ops guy who has a spotty memory and is trying to figure out what happened in his past and as part of that, he's got to take down a black ops organization like he's done three times before," Rotten Tomatoes' Matt Atchity said.
Okay, so it's not different. But that didn't stop it from doing relatively well at the box office. "The Bourne Ultimatum," the third film in the group, had the best debut with a $69 million weekend, but this latest Bourne isn't far behind.
