Regal Cinema Melton: Film guide August 25 to September 1 - Melton Times

Jason Bourne (12A) After 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, Matt Damon admitted: “I love the character, and if Paul Greengrass calls me in ten years and says, ‘I have a way to bring him back,’ then there’s a world in which I can go, ‘Yeah, absolutely.’” Well, it didn’t take quite that long – Greengrass and Damon are back. The sleeper secret agent’s memory is now intact, and he’s none too happy about how the CIA has treated him. Julia Stiles also returns as his ex-CIA confidante Nicky Parsons, with newcomers Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl), CIA bigwig Tommy Lee Jones, and Vincent Cassel as a hitman hired to eliminate our hero, all adding spice to a riveting plot. Friday, Saturday and Wednesday at 6pm and 8.45pm and Sunday, Monday and Tueday at 5pm and 7.45pm.
