Watch: Jesse Eisenberg Unleashes Mayhem In New Clip From ‘American Ultra’

Watch: Jesse Eisenberg Unleashes Mayhem In New Clip From 'American Ultra'

Next spring, Jesse Eisenberg will put on his blockbuster pants, taking the role of Lex Luthor in “Batman v Superman: Dawn On Justice.” While he will no doubt make things quite difficult for the Man Of Steel, this summer he’ll get his feet wet when it comes to causing mayhem with “American Ultra,” and the first clip has landed.

Co-starring Kristen Stewart, this is a stoner/comedy/action flick that finds the former Mark Zuckerberg playing a mild-mannered pot enthusiast who finds out that he’s actually a sleeper agent with some serious ass kicking skills wired into his DNA. However, this soon gets him on the wrong side of some bad people and he has to fight for survive. This clip from Collider shows both the tender and tough sides of the young man who will do what it takes to stay alive.
