The first trailer for the fifth Bourne movie was released on Sunday and yes, the chase scene that the film crew spent a couple of weeks filming in Las Vegas is in the trailer.

The trailer for the movie made its debut after the first quarter of the Super Bowl. It's been almost 10 years since Damon first played the super-spy Jason Bourne on screen. In the trailer, Damon appears to have bulked up a bit and is not afraid to take off his shirt and fight.

According to New York Daily News, Universal tried to fast-track a fourth Bourne movie into production before a script was written in 2007. That is when Damon and director Paul Greengrass walked away. Universal Studios chose to release a spin-off movie in 2012 titled "Bourne Legacy," which featured a different agent.

Not only is Damon back for the fifth movie, but so is Greengrass. Despite the trailer, the actual plot of the movie is still a bit of a mystery. Damon did tell the New York Daily News last summer that the film tackles some of the issues of spying and security that's torn from today's headlines.

The film crew and movie's stars were in Las Vegas for approximately two weeks to film scenes involving a security convention and a spectacular chase scene and resulting crashes on the Las Vegas Strip. They also filmed scenes at the bus stop and McCarran International Airport.

Production resulted in multiple road closures for several nights in early January.

The Strip segment in the trailer only lasted about 5 seconds.

The movie will be in theaters on July 29. The movie also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander and Vincent Cassel.
