It's been more than six years since Adventureland debuted to quickly become one of the true teen cult classics of the 2000s. Its leading lady is about to be reunited with her onscreen love interest in American Ultra, which gets its first trailer today. Kristen Stewart is back with Jesse Eisenberg in this stoner comedy-turned-action adventure, which arrives from Lionsgate as a late summer offering.
American Ultra follows Mike (Jesse Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen 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.
Watch as Mike is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive in this first restricted footage. Chronicle's Max Landis is responsible for the screenplay, which was directed by Nima Nourizadeh. The movie also stars Walton Goggins, Topher Grace, Connie Britton, John Leguizamo, and Bill Pullman. Take a look and prepare yourself for this summer's last great release, hitting theaters this August:
