We’re glad to see that Kristen Stewart is returning to her Indy type movies, gone are the days of the depressing twilight movies. Same with Jesse Eisenberg, before Jesse hits the big screen as the next Lex Luthor, he’s playing a stoner who discovers he’s actually a secret agent. Here’s the red-band trailer for American Ultra, directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) and written by Chronicle writer Max Landis.
Eisenberg plays a stoner who is “activated” by Connie Britton’s character, and before he can propose to his girlfriend (Kristen Stewart), the two have to go on the run from the government agency that’s trying to silence them. It looks like a great small-scale thriller with the potential to be super funny, so we’re hoping for good things from this one when it arrives on August 21st.
Written by Max Landis (Chronicle) and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), American Ultra also stars Topher Grace, Bill Pullman, John Leguizamo, Connie Britton, Walton Goggins and Tony Hale.
