Now that genocide-gate looks to be over, Jesse Eisenberg can probably breathe a bit easier heading into a the promo machine of “American Ultra,” where he’ll probably be choosing his words a bit more carefully. The stoner action comedy arrives next month and this first clip gives us a pretty good vibe of what we’re in for.
Reteaming with his “Adventureland” pal Kristen Stewart, the movie centers on a weed enthusiast who finds out he’s a sleeper agent and is now the target of some serious authorities who want to take him down. So, Jason Bourne meets “Cheech & Chong” perhaps? Either way, if you already get paranoid while high, imagine what happens if you happen to accidentally kill a couple of dudes.
“American Ultra” arrives on August 21st. [JoBlo]
