The newest Jason Bourne movie is due in theaters across the nation on July 29 and Las Vegas plays a very special role in the movie.

Universal Pictures just released a featurette on YouTube titled "Crashing the Las Vegas Strip."

The featurette starts out with Matt Damon, who plays Jason Bourne, and director Paul Greengrass talking about how exciting it was to be able to shut down the famous Las Vegas Strip for filming.

Greengrass says that the film culminates in Las Vegas with their best car chase ever and Damon ends the featurette by saying the new movie is the biggest Jason Bourne movie that has ever been done.

The filming in Las Vegas happened over a period of several days in January. The movie's premiere will take place in Las Vegas on Monday night. Matt Damon will be there.
