"He killed two operatives with a spoon." Roll those joints, then light ’em up, and get ready for a good time. Lionsgate has debuted a red band trailer for Nima Nourizadeh's American Ultra, from a script written by Max Landis, co-starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart as stoners and lovers. It turns out that Eisenberg, while living a peaceful pot head existence in a small town, is actually a trained secret agent (think Jason Bourne) and there's suddenly people out to eliminate him. The trailer starts out with a few conventional setups, but gets much bigger in the second half with crazy action. It gets good when he says "I keep killing people… and there's a chance I may be a robot." Topher Grace & John Leguizamo co-star.
Here's the new red band trailer for Nima Nourizadeh's American Ultra, originally from Yahoo:
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. Blazed?
Your new Lex Luthor everybody!

I'm amazed....I'm actually looking forward to watching this. But in all seriousness, Eisenberg is becoming one of my favorite actors these days. Dude is talented.

I'd only see this movie for Walton Goggins & Connie Britton. Eisenberg & Stewart are so hard to look at.

Well, that are skills that he could also use in Zombieland. But, then again, he did good without them too. I hope this will be fun as Zombieland was. Man, I loved that one ...

Written by Max Landis? Yeah, think I'll pass.

I can't shake Topher Grace as being Topher Grace. I never think of him as a character, just Topher Grace. The rest of the movie looks like fun.
