Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, the film follows the story of 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.
Written by Max Landis and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), the film also stars Topher Grace, Bill Pullman, John Leguizamo, Connie Britton, Walton Goggins and Tony Hale.
When you have Jesse Eisenberg and the director of Project X on a movie, you can expect nothing but a hilarious ride, and American Ultra is shaping up to be just that.
The film is due to hit cinemas on August 21.
