Screenwriter Max Landis (Chronicle) breaks down the unique approach to the action movie genre in our exclusive preview for American Ultra. Before you pick up this action-comedy on Digital HD Novmeber 10, you can take a look at new behind-the-scenes footage, while Max Landis compares his story to Scream, since it pokes fun at the genre while delivering thrilling scenes. We also hear from producer David Alpert (The Walking Dead) and star Tony Hale (Veep), who discuss their thoughts on the writer's unique script.
Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) and Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga) star as two slackers-turned-secret weapons in American Ultra. The movie arrives on Digital HD November 10, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and On Demand November 24 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The knockout adventure from the director of the hit comedy Project X also stars Topher Grace, Connie Britton, Walton Goggins, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman and Tony Hale.
American Ultra is a dynamic thrill ride that mixes explosive action with edgy humor. Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) shares a small-town life with his girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart). But Mike's sleepy world goes wild after he discovers that he's actually a CIA sleeper agent with lethal fighting skills-and the target of government hitmen. Mike, the ultimate slacker, transforms into an ultra-attacker as he and Phoebe fight to survive in this exhilarating adventure.
Armed with a stockpile of extras, the American Ultra home entertainment release includes a behind-the-scenes documentary, a look at the unique weapons used in the film, gag reel, and audio commentary with the director. In addition, the American Ultra Blu-ray features DTS:X immersive audio technology. DTS:X replicates and conveys the fluid movement of sound by accurately matching sounds to what is visually occurring on - and off - the screen to create a richer soundscape than has previously been possible. The American Ultra Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.99 and $21.98, respectively.
