Lionsgate’s just released the first photo from the action comedy American Ultra starring Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg (soon to be seen as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). Along with a first look at Stewart and Eisenberg in the film, the studio also revealed their character posters for the upcoming August 21, 2015 theatrical release.
American Ultra was directed by Project X‘s Nima Nourizadeh and written by Chronicle‘s Max Landis. The cast also includes Topher Grace, Tony Hale, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman, and Walton Goggins.
American Ultra is a fast-paced action comedy about Mike (Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (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 and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.
