New ‘American Ultra’ Trailer Wants You To Smoke Them All
Ever since the film “Chronicle” came out in 2012, I have been patiently waiting for the next film from the creative mind of Max Landis. Say what you want about Chronicle, but to me that movie was phenomenal. Enter 2015 and we get a trailer for what looks like a stoner comedy featuring starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart and its written by Max Landis. It’s like the angels answered my calls and gave me my own personal heaven in the form of a film.
Say what you will about both Jesse and Kristen, but I am a fan of them both and I haven’t seen them on screen together since “Adventureland” and I would be lying if I said I haven’t been waiting for them to be in something together again. Also to be completely honest, stoner comedies are my jam. This seems like its going to be the perfect blend of action action and comedy complete with some of the most insane antics and situations. I couldn’t be more excited.
American Ultra is a fast-paced action comedy about 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.
The film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Connie Britton, Topher Grace, Walton Goggins, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman, and Tony Hale, and is scheduled to be released on August 21, 2015, by Lionsgate.
