By all accounts American Ultra is a bit of an unusual movie – part Cheech & Chong and part action thriller – which reteams Adventureland co-stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘“’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 movie is due out in both the US and UK in August.
