Looking forward to “American Ultra,” a feature film starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Connie Britton, Topher Grace, Tony Hale, John Leguizamo and Bill Pullman. What a cast!
The action-comedy about a stoner turned sleeper agent opens in theaters Friday, August 21, 2015. It looks hilarious – like the TV show “Chuck,” only adult-oriented and more intense.
Mike (Eisenberg) is 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.
Directed by Nima Nourizadeh, “American Ultra” is written by Max Landis and produced by Anthony Bregman, Kevin Frakes, Raj Brinder Singh, David Alpert and Britton Rizzio.
What do you think? Looks fun, huh? We all need escapist comedy every once in a while. Or, like, every day.
