Jesse Eisenberg is a stoner secret agent and Kristen Stewart as his confused girlfriend – yes, I know I’m the only person on the planet who thinks she has potential – in the latest trailer for American Ultra.
I actually think this looks like a lot of fun… but I could be wrong; anyone else agree? Let me know your thoughts….
American Ultra centers on Mike (Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Stewart), is suddenly turned upside down. Unbeknownst to him, Mike is actually a highly trained, lethal sleeper agent. In the blink of an eye, as his secret past comes back to haunt him, Mike is thrust into the middle of a deadly government operation and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.
Written by Max Landis (Chronicle) and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), American Ultraalso stars Topher Grace, Bill Pullman, John Leguizamo, Connie Britton, Walton Goggins and Tony Hale.
Lionsgate will release the film on August 21.
