Jason Bourne (2016)

Plot: The most dangerous former operative of the CIA is drawn out of hiding to uncover hidden truths about his past. (IMDB)

Studio: Universal Pictures

Box Office: $59 million opening weekend, still grossing

1. Are there two or more named People of Color? Yes – Jeffers, Kalloor; Since majority of the film takes place globally the extras and assets out to kill Jason Bourne are also of diverse backgrounds.

2. Do they talk to each other? Kalloor may only address his staffers with a single line regarding the launch of his company but that brief interaction suffices

3. About something other than White people? Yes- However, those hunting Jason would not count since he is the subject of their conversations.

4. Asian Bonus: Is there an Asian character? Deep Dream founder, Aaroon Kalloor, is played by Riz Ahmed

Passed? YES

For a character to be introduced into a franchise and still play a significant role is a big deal. Kalloor, whose persona reads as a cross between Mark Zuckerberg and Edward Snowden, shares pivotal scenes with the leading cast putting into question the relationship of governmental intrusion and internet privacy.
