Five "Must-See" Movies for August 2015

31 July 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, it's finally August, and while the summer movie season isn't completely over it might as well be. This article was a difficult one to put together, because there just isn't much to recommend this month. But you know what, that's okay, I think I managed to pull together five solid titles for the "must-see" section, and lucky for us the fall festival season is just around the corner, which means things are about to heat up exponentially on the prestige movie front just in time to compensate for things cooling down outside as the seasons change. (I should note here, it is currently 106 degrees fahrenheit here in the desert, and the thought of things cooling down is marvelous, but also very premature.) We are coming off what turned out to be a pretty solid month last month, in my opinion, as I settled back into my routine after a »

'American Ultra' Trailer #3 Turns Jesse Eisenberg Into a Super Spy

30 July 2015 7:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In case you missed the second trailer for Lionsgate's American Ultra that debuted earlier this month, the studio has released a third trailer, chocked full of action. Before he takes on the villainous role of Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Jesse Eisenberg portrays Mike Howell, a convenience store employee who is in for quite a rude awakening. After he becomes "activated," without even knowing it himself, Mike's incredible skills are put to the test.

American Ultra is a fast-paced action comedy about Mike (Jesse Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen 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 »

30 July 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Jesse Eisenberg is just about the last guy you’d expect to emerge as a lethal agent. It’s easier to buy him as a supervillain, even. But that’s exactly the point of his latest movie, American Ultra. Directed by Nima Nourizadeh and written by Max Landis, the action-comedy stars Eisenberg as an aimless stoner who’s secretly a highly trained […]

Watch: Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart Light Up New ‘American Ultra’ Trailer

21 July 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate has released the final trailer for the Jesse Eisenberg-Kristen Stewart starrer “American Ultra” a month before its Aug. 21 release.

The action-comedy’s trailer, replete with expletives and gun play, reveals that Eisenberg’s stoner character is actually a highly trained secret agent who doesn’t realize he’s a secret agent until he becomes the target of a government operation to wipe him out.

He’s set into motion by a CIA operative calling him “Cherry Progressive” at a convenience store, followed by his killing two operatives with a spoon. “I have a lot of anxiety about this,” he tells his girlfriend, portrayed by Stewart.

The studio acquired the project last year before shooting started in New Orleans with “Project X” director Nima Nourizadeh helming from a script by Max Landis. Topher Grace and Connie Britton also star.

“Ultra” re-teams Stewart and Eisenberg six years after they »

'American Ultra' Trailer #2 Puts Hilarious Twist on Jason Bourne

20 July 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate has released the second trailer for their upcoming action-comedy American Ultra, arriving in theaters August 21. The trailer actually expands upon a new movie clip that was released last week, which took place after the seemingly-hapless stoner Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) killed two men. We get to see what actually happens that leads up to this killing, and how Mike gets 'activated' as a sleeper agent.

The trailer sets up the premise that the government has been conducting secret experiments to create "super soldiers," with a number of sleeper agents living among us in plain sight, unaware of their actual abilities. We then see Mike working at a convenience store when a mysterious woman (Connie Britton) says a few key phrases that activate this agent, leading to him killing two men who are "doing stuff" to his car. Kristen Stewart also stars as Mike's girlfriend Phoebe, who gets caught in the middle of all the action. »

For a film that's still a month away, it seems American Ultra has had more than its share of promotion and today a new trailer and the film's poster arrives. The film stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg with Eisenberg playing Mike Howell, a dopey, shaggy-haired store clerk about to pop the question to his girlfriend, Pheobe (Stewart), when the clandestine government operation that has totally Manchurian Candidated him to be a super-soldier comes calling. The major buzzkill turns into actual kills as Mike must defend himself from enemy agents and stay sober enough to rescue Phoebe, too.

Smoke 'Em - Eisenberg & Stewart in Second 'American Ultra' Trailer

20 July 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Why are people trying to stab you?!" Lionsgate has debuted another new trailer for American Ultra, the crazy stoner action comedy from director Nima Nourizadeh and screenwriter Max Landis. The movie stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart as a lazy stoner couple who get caught up in some crazy shit when it turns out Eisenberg is actually a secret government agent, kind of like Jason Bourne on marijuana. This footage has some appearances by Topher Grace and John Leguizamo in supporting roles. While the original red band footage looked much better, I'm still very much excited to see this - the perfect kind of wacky all-out-crazy action comedy to end the summer. A few more weeks to go, so keep a few joints packed. Here's the second official trailer for Nima Nourizadeh's American Ultra, originally found on YouTube: A stoner and his girlfriend's sleepy, small-town existence is disrupted when »

'American Ultra' Clip: Jesse Eisenberg Is a Stoned Cold Killer

17 July 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After debuting two new posters at Comic-Con last week, Lionsgate has unveiled a clip from their upcoming action-comedy American Ultra. The scene features Phoebe (Kristen Stewart), hard at work at her bail bonds office, who gets a call from her boyfriend Mike (Jesse Eisenberg). He's freaking out at his convenience store job after killing two people with a spoon. While begging Phoebe to come over, Mike explains how he killed these assailants, and it's pretty gruesome. Then, even more trouble arrives. It's the police!

Jesse Eisenberg Has A Lot Of Anxiety In New American Ultra Clip

16 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Watching this latest clip from the upcoming action comedy American Ultra – in which actor Jesse Eisenberg depicts some extreme anxiety – it’s impossible not to wonder whether he had this exact reaction when he realized he had recently compared the San Diego Comic-Con with genocide. He has, evidently, been on a steep learning curve in terms of dealing with movie promotion, so hopefully his efforts on behalf of this new movie will feature fewer references to horrific international war crimes, and more emphasis on the actual project at hand – not least because this one might need some talking up.

Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), and written by Max Landis (Chronicle), the film centres on Mike Howell (Eisenberg), who is a renowned stoner, wanting to marry his stoner girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart). He has no recollection of the fact that he is, in fact, a highly skilled government agent who »

American Ultra: Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg Get Bloody in New Images, Posters

25 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In addition to Steve’s on-set interview with stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, Lionsgate has provided us with a trio of new images and two trippy posters from the action-comedy American Ultra to share with our readers today. Written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), the film revolves around a stoner (Eisenberg) and his girlfriend (Stewart) who find their lives disrupted when a government operation descends upon their small town with the aim of wiping the stoner out, who is in fact a sleeper agent. The excellent first trailer and these new images certainly play up the fact that Eisenberg and Stewart’s characters get very bruised and bloodied over the course of the film, and indeed we saw in the trailer that the actors weren’t afraid to get their hands dirty. Additionally, the posters play up the film's stoner vibe. Check »

American Ultra Set Visit Interview: Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart

25 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When director Nima Nourizadeh’s (Project X) action-comedy American Ultra was filming in New Orleans in May last year, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. Written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis, the story finds a stoner/sleeper agent (Jesse Eisenberg) and his girlfriend’s (Kristen Stewart) life are disrupted when a government operation descends upon their small town with the aim of wiping the stoner out. This is the first time Eisenberg and Stewart have worked together since Greg Mottola’s underrated coming-of-age drama, Adventureland. American Ultra also stars Walton Goggins, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman, Topher Grace and Tony Hale. While on set I got to watch some filming and talk to most of the cast and filmmakers. In the coming weeks I’ll have a lot more on the cool-looking film, but for now I wanted to share the on set interview with Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. »

Is Kristen Stewart funny?

25 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg are a couple in love -- and possibly death. I'm on the set of "American Ultra," the Max Landis-scripted, Nima Nourizadeh-directed comedic action film that stars Stewart and Eisenberg as Phoebe and Mike, a slacker couple being pursued by heavily-armed contract killers. The reason? Mike is in fact a highly-trained government agent (with amnesia!) who's been marked as a "liability" and targeted for assassination. We get to see some of the action go down on the film's New Orleans set, a warehouse that's been partially converted into a small-town grocery store. When we arrive they're in the midst of shooting a fight scene that sees Mike engaging in brutal, bloody battle with a number of enemies through aisles labeled "Fresh Produce," "Electronics," "Chips" and "Cleaning Products." In one corner of the warehouse, a giant green screen has been set up that in post »

24 June 2015 11:50 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was back in 2009 that Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart first joined forces on the big screen, playing male and female leads in Greg Mottola.s period, coming-of-age tale Adventureland. After a number of years apart, now the two actors are coming back together, but instead of playing two young people falling in love against the backdrop of a low-rent amusement park, this time around they.re dodging bullets and kicking all kinds of ass in director Nima Nourizadeh.s American Ultra. Based on an original screenplay by Max Landis (Chronicle), American Ultra tells the story of Mike Howell (Eisenberg) . a stoner convenience store clerk who finds his happiness in the love he shares with his girlfriend, Phoebe (Stewart).
