No, you don't need to know any backstory. The new Jason Bourne film tells a more or less standalone story. It's loosely linked to the previous films - in that Bourne is a former CIA assassin who's no longer involved with the agency, while certain high-up figures within the CIA still want him 'brought in' or killed - but all the necessary information is ...

Well acording to Born.Fandom.Com/Wiki Kirill originally frames Jason Bourne by planting his fingerprints and proceeds to kill the agent and the source, stealing the files and money and giving them to Russian oil magnate Yuri Gretkov. Hope this is what you're searching for.

Being a huge fan of the movies, I'll try and answer the question the best that I can. The Bourne Identity In the first one, he was in Paris trying to make sense of what happened to him, and out running assassins with Marie. Abbott realized what damage this could have done to the CIA and to a larger extent U.S relations with foreign countries. At certain ...

When the display is green, it indicates whether the elevator goes upwards or downwards, and to which floor the elevator is heading. Bourne switched off these indicators so that the pursuing agents do not know which way he is heading (up or down) and which floor his destination is. When the indicator works properly (green), it shows if the lift goes up or ...

I watched Jason Bourne in the cinema, and it continued normally off The Bourne Ultimatum exactly as a canon episode should skip the storyline of a filler. The Bourne Legacy is like a filler, you can skip it. It continued after The Bourne Ultimatum, I didn't have any trouble. TL;DR: You can skip The Bourne Legacy and watch Jason Bourne.

There is - when Nicky Parsons hacks into the CIA's mainframe the is a list of 'Black Ops' which includes the 'Outcome' programme from The Bourne Legacy Unfortunately, I cannot find a complete screenshot of this but here is one of the list, with 'OUTCOME' just out of the of the shot somewhere below 'SPEARFISH...

He didn't. Watch his body language in that scene - he is tense and then surprised. However, he had no choice but to trust Heather Lee and so he went. Seeing previous Bourne movies would show he would readily make himself a plan B if he encountered a problem.

I think it's a case of her seeing an opportunity to get rid of him, thus creating a power vacuum that she can fill. Dewey says to her quite early on something like "don't let your personal ambition get in the way" and a couple of times we see her going over his head to suggest something to the Director of National Intelligence, so she's obviously very ...

While Bogden's answer is fine, I just want to clarify that Abbot was the clear source of the fingerprint, given his access to Bourne's files with the logical conclusion that the conspiracy to frame him was only concocted following the murder of Conklin and Bourne going to ground. Indeed, Born.Fandom.Com/Wiki, specifically states that "Unbeknownst to Landy ...

All of the above feels very credible about Heather's planned detente with Bourne and coup d'etat with Dewey, however Bourne kept his eye on her and although she gained her coveted position she will unlikely get him to come in. I think however, he will string her along and use her for various intel.To his advantage, she will probably do anything to keep a ...

Heather Lee is the head of the Cyber Ops division, and believes that Dewey's methods are outdated. Simply put, it's cyber warfare and Dewey isn't fit to lead the CIA. She is given the task of bringing Bourne back into the CIA, however, as we see, she failed to do so. Dewey attempts to have her and Kalloor (head of Deep Dream) killed because she was aiding ...
