American Ultra Trailer

"Why are people trying to stab you?!" Lionsgate has debuted another new trailer for American Ultra, the crazy stoner action comedy from director Nima Nourizadeh and screenwriter Max Landis. The movie stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart as a lazy stoner couple who get caught up in some crazy shit when it turns out Eisenberg is actually a secret government agent, kind of like Jason Bourne on marijuana. This footage has some appearances by Topher Grace and John Leguizamo in supporting roles. While the original red band footage looked much better, I'm still very much excited to see this - the perfect kind of wacky all-out-crazy action comedy to end the summer. A few more weeks to go, so keep a few joints packed.

Here's the second official trailer for Nima Nourizadeh's American Ultra, originally found on YouTube:

American Ultra

A stoner and his girlfriend's sleepy, small-town existence is disrupted when his past comes back to haunt him in the form of a government operation set to wipe him out. American Ultra is directed by filmmaker Nima Nourizadeh, of Warner Bros' smash party hit Project X previously. The screenplay was written by controversial writer/artist/filmmaker Max Landis, who can currently be found on Twitter @Uptomyknees. Nourizadeh tells MTV, "“You start with this kind of like sweet love story… I don’t want to turn people off with that, but what’s really unique about this movie is the fact that it’s like this kind of crazy action-comedy, but really at the core there is this like romance and there’s this love story where all he wants to do is to propose to her." Lionsgate will release American Ultra on August 21st, 2015 this summer. Smooth?

    I'm surprised how good this looks.

    I was laughing right away with the line 'the person you least expect'...and then it cuts to Eisenberg and his wonderful expressive and off-center presence! I really dig the guy. He makes me laugh. Plus, he was great in The Social Network. I also like Stewart a lot too when she's not in those teen-age vampire movies. I'll check this out when it comes on cable, for sure.
  • Like a comedy version of an 80's Van Damage movie

    I definitely prefer Eisenberg playing in these kind of 'I'm lost in the universe' movies than being bad ass criminal as Lex Luthor. But who knows, I might be wrong ...
      Definitely. His performance in RIO was his best work to date.

        Oh, Zombieland was also fun. And, even when Campbell Scott was a real star in it, I still liked him in Roger Dodger too ...
    • Jon Odishaw
      Honestly from the very little we've seen of him as Lex I must say I like it.
      • shiboleth
        Oh, I am pretty sure he's gonna be fine. And I'll be glad to check it out. I'm just wondering if that's his kind of act. Maybe, who knows, he wants to play a real villain. Remains to be seen, definitely ...
    THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE meets PINEAPPLE EXPRESS!!!~ I was a little hesitant at first, but now I am pretty excited by this project.

      Hahahaha, that's a good one ...

    Well, it looks like Lex had a LITTLE-bit too-much of that darn Kryptonite... A-GAIN.
