They starred together in “Adventureland,” and recently wrapped shooting on Woody Allen‘s next film, but sandwiched between for Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart is “American Ultra.” Hitting theaters late this summer, you might’ve missed it, but we’ve got the movie on DVD for some lucky readers.
Directed by Nima Nourizadeh, the comedic thriller centers on the small-town life of stoner Mike (Eisenberg) and his girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart). 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. The ultimate slacker, Mike transforms into an ultra-attacker as he and Phoebe fight to survive, and in the exclusive featurette below, the director explains his approach to marrying ultra-violence and comedy.
