With Matt Damon back, ‘Jason Bourne’ looks to ignite the summer box office

Jason Bourne is back.

The franchise, which has grossed more than $1.2 billion worldwide, has Matt Damon back in the title role for “Jason Bourne” and looks to inject some excitement, and some much needed money, into the summer box office. The film pulled in $4.2 million in early showings Thursday night and is a shoo-in for the weekend box office’s top spot.
