“…the final installment in the mountingly exciting series is a pounding, pulsating thriller that provides an almost constant adrenaline surge for nearly two hours.” (Variety)

Matt Damon returns as the trained assassin, Jason Bourne in the latest installment of the smash-hit action adventure series, The Bourne Ultimatum, which opened in the US on August 3rd, 2007. In the film, Bourne continues his quest to find the real Jason Bourne, while at the same time he is aggressively hunted by the people who made him what he is.

Having recently worked with the film’s director Paul Greengrass on the critically-acclaimed United 93, Double Negative jumped at the chance to provide all the VFX for the film.

Production VFX Supervisor, Peter Chiang, came to Double Negative to produce over 590 “invisible” shots for the film including set extentions, digital doubles, CG cars, debris, and hundreds of 2D fixes, and worked on some key sequences within the movie. The team was lead internally by VFX Supervisor, Charlie Noble and VFX Producer, Matt Plummer.

The Bourne Ultimatum opened in UK cinemas on August 17th, 2007.
