Jesse Eisenberg is a stoned, cold killer in first trailer for ‘American Ultra’

28 May 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I don’t think this is a sequel to Adventureland.

The first trailer for American Ultra is out and it stars Jesse Eisenberg as a stoner who finds out that he is a trained spy. The film also stars Kristen Stewart, Walton Goggins, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman, Topher Grace, and Tony Hale.

Directed by Project X helmer Nima Nourizadeh, this looks like it wants to fit into the absurd action/comedy genre that Pineapple Express, This is the End, and 21 Jump Street fit into. It didn’t seem like it was taking itself too seriously, and if it can find that right mood, it could work much like Pineapple Express did with Seth Rogen and James Franco.

The premise is a little absurd, but these two actors have shown chemistry together on Adventureland and this looks like a wild film that could work with the right tone.

Interview: Andrew Bujalski On How 'Results' Is Like 'Persona,' Guy Pearce's Accent, And Much More

28 May 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Writer/director Andrew Bujalski ("Computer Chess”) is making his bones quickly. He's only made four independently financed feature films, and his fourth is his biggest and best yet. A dynamite cast helps, but Bujalski's tentative move towards the mainstream doesn't tamp down his funny and observational sensibilities. His latest, "Results," stars the criminally underused Kevin Corrigan ("Pineapple Express"), Guy Pearce ("Memento"), Cobie Smulders “(“The Avengers"), Giovanni Ribisi and Anthony Michael Hall in the weirdest role you will ever see him in. “Results” is centered on the culture of self-improvement. The comedy focuses on two mismatched personal trainers, self-styled guru/owner Trevor (Pearce) and irresistibly acerbic trainer Kat (Smulders), whose lives are upended by the actions of a wealthy client (Corrigan). As their three lives become inextricably knotted, the plot go from complicated to super messy, and as our »

American Ultra Red Band Trailer Shoots Online

28 May 2015 10:05 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

What do you get when you cross Jason Bourne with Pineapple Express? No, you do not get a pineapple grenade. You get American Ultra, which finds Jesse Eisenberg as a stoner with a slightly violent past. Check out the trailer, which is restricted largely thanks to some sweary language from the likes of John Leguizamo and Topher Grace.  The film, written by Chronicle/Victor Frankenstein’s Max Landis, finds Eisenberg as Mike Howell, an easy-going stoner content to work a boring job in a convenience store and live a happy life with girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart). He’s so settled that he’s about to propose to her, but then his life becomes very complicated. As in bullets-flying-and-cars-going-boom complicated.Mike, you see, is a government asset, a trained killer who has been in sleeper mode, but is now considered a liability and targeted for termination. Yet it’ll take more »

Jesse Eisenberg Is A Secret Agent In Red Band Trailer For American Ultra

28 May 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Coming across like the love child of Pineapple Express and The Bourne Identity, the first Nsfw for action comedy has come our way, putting Jesse Eisenberg in the shoes of a highly trained CIA sleeper agent who has fallen deep into his cover of a go nowhere stoner. When the time has come to activate him, it sees his life and the life of his girlfriend (Kristen Stewart) put in serious danger . Written by Chronicle’s Max Landis and with Project X’s Nima Nourizadeh, American Ultra’s high concept (geddit?) shows a hell of a lot of promise as it gleefully subverts some of the usual action thriller cliches, and there are plenty of laughs to be had, especially from Topher Grace playing a pretty fun villain. Released: 21st August (U.S.)/ 28th August (Irl/U.K.) »

Red-Band American Ultra Trailer Is Explosive, Funny And Nsfw

28 May 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jessie Eisenberg is a stoned-cold killer in the first American Ultra trailer -- emphasis on the stoned. If you thought Seth Rogen and James Franco made the perfect stoner movie duo in Pineapple Express, just wait until you get a load of Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in what likely will be your new favorite stoner-comedy-action extravaganza. Watch the red-band trailer below and be mindful of naughty words and Nsfw content.  Yahoo Movies debuted the American Ultra trailer and it looks like a fun and wild ride. Eisenberg plays Mike Howell. On the surface, he may seem like your average convenience store counter clerk who gets stoned all the time, but in reality he's a sleeper agent for the government. There's just rarely a moment when he's not baked off his ass, so he processes things -- including his activation and orders -- a bit more slow than other operatives. All »

American Ultra Red-Band Trailer: Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg Are Stoners on the Run

28 May 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Lionsgate has released the first American Ultra red-band trailer for the upcoming-action comedy. Written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), the story finds a stoner/sleeper agent (Jesse Eisenberg) and his girlfriend’s (Kristen Stewart) life disrupted when a government operation descends upon their small town with the aim of wiping the stoner out. You can really feel the high concept (no pun intended) of taking a traditional spy-action-thriller film and then trying to give it a twist of making the lead characters stoners, but thankfully this still comes off as an amusing film. Nourizadeh looks like he has a knack for action filmmaking, the jokes are solid, and Topher Grace is clearly having a good time chewing the scenery as the villain.  Pineapple Express went over similar ground back in August 2008, and I wouldn't be surprised if American Ultra also found the same kind of success. »

18 May 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

IFC Films has released the first trailer for David Gordon Green's Manglehorn.

The film hits theaters and VOD June 19th. David Gordon Green is one of the most unpredictable directors working today. He first came on the scene with a streak of well-recieved dramas (All the Real Girls, Undertow, Snow Angels) before diving into a series of juvenile comedies (Pineapple Express, Your Highness, The Sitter). His comedy work was hit and miss, but over the last few years he's returned strong to drama with Joe and Prince Avalanche.  Manglehorn debuted at Tiff 2014 to mixed reception, you read Matt's review here. Check out the trailer for Green's latest dramatic effort below. Trailer via IFC Films. »

15 May 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Al Pacino plays a lonely man learning to embrace life in the trailer for indie drama Manglehorn.

Manglehorn has a troubled relationship with his grown son Jacob (Chris Messina), but a romance with a new woman (Holly Hunter) soon changes his outlook on life.

Al Pacino Is a Sad Crazy Cat Man in This 'Manglehorn' Trailer

15 May 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If nothing else, the new trailer for "Manglehorn" is a good advertisement for the U.S. Post Office. Al Pacino plays A.J. Manglehorn, a lonely locksmith obsessed with an old flame named Clara. He constantly sends her letters, then repeatedly checks his mailbox for replies. It's old school like that, but there's always been a romance to the love letter, as opposed to the immediacy of the booty call text.

"Manglehorn" was directed by David Gordon Green ("Pineapple Express, "All the Real Girls") and co-stars Chris Messina as A.J.'s son Jacob and Holly Hunter as A.J.'s potential new love interest, a bank teller named Dawn. Manglehorn doesn't do much besides fix locks, dote on his cat, and remain heartbroken by the Clara he loved and lost so many years ago. If he were a woman, they'd call him an eccentric crazy cat lady, so we'll »

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg Get High in First American Ultra Posters

14 May 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Our first look at Lionsgate’s action-comedy American Ultra has arrived, and the Adventureland reunion between stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg actually looks like it could function as a genuine sequel to Greg Mottola’s underrated coming-of-age drama. Written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), the story finds a stoner (Eisenberg) and his girlfriend’s (Stewart) life disrupted when a government operation descends upon their small town with the aim of wiping the stoner out. The picture begins as a romance, with Eisenberg’s character aiming to propose to his longtime girlfriend, but it’s soon revealed that he’s actually a sleeper agent. While the movie definitely has an action bent, Nourizadeh explains to MTV that at heart it’s a love story: “You start with this kind of like sweet love story,” Nourizadeh said. “I don’t want to turn people off with that, »

Preacher: Seth Rogen Tweet Confirms That Shooting is Underway

13 May 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It's happening, people! Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's classic graphic novel series, Preacher, is officially underway under the direction of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the duo behind Pineapple Express and the script for Superbad. Rogen took to Twitter to announce the news, offering a shot of a filled-out clapperboard with Preacher graphics adorning it. It's great news for one of the most highly anticipated television events currently in production, and there's the added benefit of a second, more minor reveal concerning the forthcoming pilot, as the "Camera" line notes that the great cinematographer Bill Pope will be shooting the pilot for Rogen and Goldberg. [caption id="attachment_427863" align="alignright" width="247"] Image via Vertigo/DC[/caption] For those who don't know the name, Pope has been one of the most inventive and distinct directors of photography to work regularly in Hollywood over the last three decades or so.

New Hot Pursuit Movie Received Mostly Negative Reviews From Major Critics

9 May 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

New Line Cinema (Warner Bros.), MGM released their new comedy/action film, "Hot Pursuit," into theaters this weekend, and all the top,major critics have turned in their reviews for it. It turns out that most of them weren't too please with what they saw, giving it a very low, overall 30 score out of a possible 100 score across 33 reviews at the site. The film stars: John Carroll Lynch, Reese Witherspoon, Sofia Vergara, Richard T. Jones and Rob Kazinsky. We've supplied blurbs from a few of the critics,below. Sara Stewart from the New York Post, gave it a not so great 50 score, saying: "Witherspoon’s charge, Sofía Vergara as a recalcitrant witness in need of police protection, is an adept slapstick comic likewise hamstrung by director Anne Fletcher’s sluggish pacing, which reliably stays with a scene for three beats beyond the punch line."

Oscar Film Series: Boyle-Franco Collaboration Mostly Works Despite Director's Exaggerated Hyperkinetic Touches

6 May 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'127 Hours' movie with James Franco '127 Hours' Review: James Franco stars in harrowing real life-based story 127 Hours. When I initially heard that Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy, the Oscar-winning team behind Slumdog Millionaire, were adapting the real life story of Aron Ralston for the big screen, I got excited. A movie seemed an inevitability when the story broke in the news – and Ralston wrote a book about it – but I couldn't have imagined such a great filmmaking team actually working on it. When James Franco was cast as Ralston, my hopes hit a high. Franco is an underrated and remarkably talented actor unfortunately snubbed by most for his wonderful work in 2008's Milk and Pineapple Express. Danny Boyle also happens to be a very skilled director, one whose style tends to be hyperkinetic. Though it worked beautifully in Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting, Boyle's touch actually hinders, rather than enhances, »

Amber Heard and James Franco "Have Great Chemistry"

James Franco and Amber Heard are at it again. Seven years after having appeared together in Pineapple Express, the two have reunited for The Adderall Diaries, a film adaptation of Stephen Elliott's best-selling memoir of the same name. "James and Amber have great chemistry," the movie's director Pamela Romanowsky told us Thursday at the Adderall premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. "As a director, it's really exciting to see two people who haven't spent much time together come into a room to do a scene and find this connection and electricity between them. It was really exciting to watch." Franco stars as in the movie as writer with many issues, including substance abuse »

Fixated on her memory, he feels closer to his beloved cat than the people around him. Still, he forges on with his tenuous human connections, maintaining intermittent contact with his son (Messina) and taking misplaced pride in a former protege gone astray, and establishing a cautious friendship with a kind woman from the local bank. As this solitary man approaches the possibility of new love, he finds himself at a crossroads between staying mired in the past and embracing the present. Trailer: »

First Trailer for David Gordon Green's 'Manglehorn' with Al Pacino

14 April 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"Not a day goes by where I don't miss you deeply." This isn't anything like Pineapple Express or Your Highness, but it is another unique film from director David Gordon Green. His latest film, aside from Joe, is the drama Manglehorn starring Al Pacino as an aging locksmith in Texas who longs for the lost love of his life. Holly Hunter, Harmony Korine and Chris Messina also star. This trailer is a rather beautiful setup for a very tragic, low key film that doesn't amount to much. Most of what you see in here is what is in the film. I wish I could say it's even better than this trailer is - since I saw this at Tiff last year and it's okay, not that great. That said, if you have been waiting to see Al Pacino back at his best, start here. Here's the first trailer (from France »
