Director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon have teamed up again for another high-paced action thriller, Green Zone, and the brand new international trailer for it has been made available online.

Green Zone is inspired by the Rajiv Chandrasekaran book, “Imperial Life in the Emerald City” and the first trailer for the flick debuted online last week alongside Damon’s other upcoming movie, Invictus.

Check out the synopsis and new trailer after the jump.


During the U.S.-led occupation of Baghdad in 2003, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) and his team of Army inspectors were dispatched to find weapons of mass destruction believed to be stockpiled in the Iraqi desert. Rocketing from one booby-trapped and treacherous site to the next, the men search for deadly chemical agents but stumble instead upon an elaborate cover-up that inverts the purpose of their mission.

Spun by operatives with intersecting agendas, Miller must hunt through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil for answers that will either clear a rogue regime or escalate a war in an unstable region. And at this blistering time and in this combustible place, he will find the most elusive weapon of all is the truth.

Now watch and enjoy:

I dig the trailer a lot but the two callouts I’ve got to make are:

  1. I feel I know the entire story and the twists – there better been a lot more to the story and twists that weren’t revealed here.
  2. This movie looks and feels like a Bourne movie… and it stars the same star AND the same director. They really should of just put this in the Bourne franchise since it’s very loosely based on “Imperial Life in the Emerald City.”

Alongside Matt Damon, Green Zone’s talented cast includes Jason Isaacs, Brendan Gleeson, Greg Kinnear and Amy Ryan. The screenplay was written by Brian Helgeland.

What do you think of the trailer? Feel the Bourne vibe?

Green Zone opens in theaters March 12, 2010.

  1. Nothing wrong with having a bourne feel to it. That might actually attract many more people.

  2. Want Imperial Life in city NONFICTION?
    seems like a weird choice tf material to base a fictional thriller on.

  3. oops Imperial Life in The Emerald City .
    I dont know why they just didnt adapt the book straight,
    instead of making it Bourne in Baghdad.

  4. I bought the book.
    so far, its not a conspiracy theory book at all.

  5. Looks great!!Looking forward to it.

  6. I hope overall its an anti war film,,,

    In the same vien as “Hurt Locker!”

  7. I like Damon as an action star, but this doesn’t have anything else that other similar films have. it looks the same.

  8. paul greengrass matt damon sign me up!!!

  9. Matt Damon makes an Iraq war conspiracy theory movie. I so TOTALLY was not expecting that.

  10. Why are they doing this when the war is not clearly over yet?? 790 Their was nothing anti war about the hurt locker…If you consider The hurt locker anti war then you should talk to more Iraqi war vets.

  11. Um was the special forces soldier who punched Matt damon in the face Ben Affleck???? lmao…please say it aint so lol. Um aside from the obvious this looks like a kick azz action movie. In no way is it an Iraqi war movie. For all those that see this movie and The Hurt locker…I know of no soldiers who have done the things the soldiers do in these movies like lone white guys running through baghdad alone. lol pure ridiculousness. The only thing that I could relate to though and I could tell you that I thought was true about Hurt Locker is the PTSD and the need to go back after going so many times, you get so used to being over there.

  12. How the hell did Ben affleck make it into this movie at 2:09 rofl.

  13. MarcusFenix09, what’s left to conquer in Iraq?

    “The Hurt Locker” portrayed a soldier addicted to adrenaline and the moment…

    “Hurt Locker” contained anti war themes throughout,,, The most memorable was when the lead character found the dead soccer kid in the slaughterouse…
    After that the scene in the supermarket was also humbling,,,,,

    Off to war again was the end,,, sad film,,,
