Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) and written by Max Landis (Chronicle), the story follows a stoner (Eisenberg) and his girlfriend (Stewart) whose boring, small town lifestyle gets a tad too heavy when a government operation steps in looking for vengeance. It’s the sort of batshit craziness we’re bound to champion — especially when the cast also includes John Leguizamo, Walton Goggins, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman, Topher Grace, and Tony Hale — and the new red band trailer all but spells out the word “FUN” in big, bright balloon letters. Watch below.
American Ultra hits theaters on August 21st via Lionsgate, making it the greatest birthday present this then-31-year-old can receive. In related news, Eisenberg and Stewart will re-team a third time for Woody Allen’s next yet-to-be-titled production. So basically, it’s a really good time for fans who like seeing the two of them on-screen together.
