    @EmmyttWolfe I so think that 2015 is going to be so good to. Can't wait to see this one as well. The last one was good. Not great but I liked it a lot.

    Without Tony Gilroy being involved, I'm very skeptical of this new film. I will probably see it, but I'm sure it won't be as a good as the other 4 since Gilroy isn't involved.

    Bad idea. They'd be better off waiting until 2016 since summer 2015 is so crowded , there's a good chance a Bourne movie will drown
