Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart get baked for American Ultra posters

05.15.2015

If you're wondering what the hell Lex Luthor and Snow White are doing getting high as a kite, then you're not alone! In a movie that probably doesn't require our lead characters to reach any level of level of sobriety, AMERICAN ULTRA follows a seemingly hapless and unmotivated Stoner, Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen 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. I . . . was not expecting that! Check out the leads in the first two posters for the film.

When CHRONICLE hit, I was very impressed by both the directing of Josh Trank and the writing of Max Landis. We'll see if Trank has the directing chops when FANTASTIC FOUR hits later this year. Meanwhile, Landis has a ton of projects coming up in the near future. MR. RIGHT, ME HIM HER, AMERICAN ULTRA, and VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN are all scheduled to hit sometime in 2015, so no one can accuse the man of being lazy! With that said, ULTRA sounds like a kindred spirit to PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, and given that Eisenberg and Stewart made for a good duo in ADVENTURELAND, I wouldn't be opposed to that at all!

AMERICAN ULTRA will hit theaters on August 21, 2015.

Stewart has become the female Channing Tatter for me, any movie she is in I stay away from like the plague.

I'm willing to give it a shot

I'll likely hold out for the reviews but this seems like it could work. The Interwebz may hate Max Landis but he did crank out a hell of a script with CHRONICLE, and it looks like he's getting a lot of work. Both Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart have their limitations, but work well within them.

Personally I'm a big fan of Stewart, and I'll give most of her stuff a chance. This sounds like it could be fun to me.

Sounds awful. And it will probably be Eisenberg, and Stewart playing there exact selves like they do in every film (expect for Adventureland, which I did enjoy immensely).

While I am not expecting a masterpiece (or even another Adventureland or Pineapple Express), I am excited for this. Kristen Stewart wasn't meant to play princesses in fairy tales (and I include Bella Swan in that), she was always much better as a sort of girl-next-door type. And while the premise does seem rather moronical (in a not-necessarily-bad sort of way) I'm actually surprised it hasn't happened already. I mean the stoner spy has been a trope for some time now, so how come it took this

Sorry, I'm taking out the garbage that day....

What a crap premise for a movie....even a comedy. Add to it two actors with the range of....well, playing themselves....and you have a recipe for something that make you reflect fondly on the days of Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.

Cool

I'm actually very excited about this. Adventureland turned out to be a film that I revisit quite often and love it increasingly per viewing. However I'm sure due to Eisenberg, Stewart and Landis' involvement there will be a lot of Strikeback backlash.
