No one sucker punches Jason Bourne in the face and gets away with it. No one! Yesterday we posted the domestic trailer for Matt Damon’s new Iraq War movie “Green Zone”, which seems to be selling us a Bourne movie minus anyone named Bourne. Today, the International trailer for Paul Greengrass’ movie has surfaced over at MSNBC and it would seem to tell a completely different story. In short, whereas the domestic trailer pitted Damon against the U.S. Government, this one seems to be pitting Damon against the Pentagon, led by scummy bureaucrat Greg Kinnear. And get this — the CIA might not be bad guys in this movie. What will they ever think of next?
During the U.S.-led occupation of Baghdad in 2003, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) and his team of Army inspectors were dispatched to find weapons of mass destruction believed to be stockpiled in the Iraqi desert. Rocketing from one booby-trapped and treacherous site to the next, the men search for deadly chemical agents but stumble instead upon an elaborate cover-up that inverts the purpose of their mission.
Spun by operatives with intersecting agendas, Miller must hunt through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil for answers that will either clear a rogue regime or escalate a war in an unstable region. And at this blistering time and in this combustible place, he will find the most elusive weapon of all is the truth.
Starring Matt Damon, Jason Isaacs, Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson, Amy Ryan, Michael O’Neill, Khalid Abdalla, Antoni Corone, Yigal Naor, Sean Huze, Said Faraj, and directed by Paul Greengrass.
