See Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in the trailer for American Ultra
Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart were an interesting pair in Adventureland, and now they're back together again as an onscreen couple in American Ultra — albeit an explosive one. Documenting the story of small-town stoners Mike (Eisenberg) and Phoebe (Stewart), a couple on the verge of getting married, American Ultra starts with Mike discovering that he is a trained assassin (without even knowing it) while working at a convenience store one evening.
The trailer gives us preposterous action scenes, and tongue-in-cheek references to some classic secret agent films. It's Eisenberg like we've never seen him before — bloodied and boozy. Stewart serves up some acting chops as a damsel in distress, but not an entirely helpless one. See it first below.
American Ultra will be out in American theatres in August.
