What American Ultra Is Actually About

14 May 2015 2:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In true stoner fashion, the upcoming cannabis-centric cinematic slacker project, American Ultra missed a more apropos 4/20 unveiling of material by nearly a month. However, more details about its plot have now finally been revealed. The main cast, reuniting Adventureland couple Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, apparently looks to be going on a baked, genre-bending romp. In a report by MTV News unveiling the first image and posters from the film, a rundown of the movie.s plot is also provided, setting up the crazy adventure. American Ultra features Jesse Eisenberg.s Mike as, you guessed it, a slacker/stoner type wandering aimlessly in a weed-fogged ambivalence. The only thing he has going in his life, besides a ton of Thc, is his girlfriend, Kristen Stewart.s Phoebe. However, in a bizarre call to the hero.s journey that even Joseph Campbell couldn.t have possibly imagined, Mike discovers that he »

Kristen Stewart And Jesse Eisenberg Reunite For Genre Mash-Up American Ultra

14 May 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Judging by the first posters for Nima Nourizadeh’s genre mash-up American Ultra, Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart are a long way from the idyllic, low-key setting of Adventureland. For the atypical comedy, the stars will play Mike and Phoebe, respectively, two laid-back stoners who will act as the crux of Ultra‘s tale of love, lust and eccentric hair.

MTV debuted our first look at the dramedy, and the outlet also sat down to talk with Nourizadeh about the creative process behind the film and how it’s proven to be a difficult butterfly to pin when it comes to actually pitching the concept during marketing.

“You start with this kind of like sweet love story. I don’t want to turn people off with that, but what’s really unique about this movie is the fact that it’s like this kind of crazy action-comedy, but really at »

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

14 May 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com 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, »

First Picture and Posters from 'American Ultra' Starring Jesse Eisenberg & Kristen Stewart

14 May 2015 9:54 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart last teamed together on Adventureland and in they will be working together again on Woody Allen's next movie, but later this year we'll see them in their second project together, American Ultra, from Project X director Nima Nourizadeh. The duo play a pair of stoners whose sleepy, small-town existence is disrupted when his past comes back to haunt him in the form of a government operation set to wipe him out. Clearly, based on the first two posters for the film, the couple are a pair of stoners and Nourizadeh describes the situation to MTV saying, "His world just gets turned upside down and he starts to realize who he actually is," he continued. "For a lot of the movie, he's just like unaware of what's going on, why these people are trying to kill him, and he soon finds out. It's just this weird sort of entertaining, »

Jesse Eisenberg And Kristen Stewart Get High In New Posters For 'American Ultra'

14 May 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This summer, "Adventureland" buds Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart are finding a new, uh, adventure, with "American Ultra." And in a much different tone from that aforementioned coming-of-age comedy, this one will find them as a pair of stoners who wind up on the run when the government puts their sights on them. The movie is from the director of "Project X," Nima Nourizadeh," and he tells MTV this is more than just a run 'n gun tale. “You start with this kind of like sweet love story,” he explained. “I don’t want to turn people off with that, but what’s really unique about this movie is the fact that it’s like this kind of crazy action-comedy, but really at the core there is this like romance and there’s this love story where all he wants to do is to propose to her.

80s Fashion On Film

13 May 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The bright, brilliant fashion of the 1980s has often been captured on film – the over-the-top nature of the clothes lends itself beautifully to cinema, with some of the most iconic outfits of all time captured in this era. To celebrate the home entertainment release of A Most Violent Year, in which Jessica Chastain showcases an incredible array of 1980s-era Armani, we take a look at other films which demonstrate the fashion of the decade.

Submarine (2010)

Richard Ayoade’s comedy drama stars Craig Roberts as 15 year-old Oliver Tate, who has two major ambitions – to lose his virginity to the beautiful Jordana (Yamin Paige), and to save his parents’ rocky relationship (a task made all the more difficult when his mother’s ex-lover reappears in their lives). Costume designer Charlotte Walters does a brilliant job of capturing the wonderfully quirky take on the classic coming-of-age tale, dressing the young cast in a wonderful array of duffle coats, »

Forget Twilight, isn't it about time we started taking Kristen Stewart seriously?

10 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Since her rapid ascent to fame as The Twilight Saga's leading lady, Kristen Stewart has had something of a rough time when it comes to her professional and public life. It's bad enough having the latter combed over in fine detail, but when your talent is called into question, that must sting all the more.

But here's the thing about Kristen Stewart. She isn't a bad actress in the slightest. In fact, right now she's on the kind of under-the-radar hot streak that suggests she's destined for real career longevity. Twilight, now receding into the cultural distance, was never the finest example of a franchise that fostered great acting work, and Stewart suffered as audiences naturally connected her with sullen on-screen alter-ego Bella Swan.

Over the last 18 months Stewart's big screen work has seen her take on a trio of diverse roles that have smartly distanced her from anything vampire-related. »

The Odd Couples: Three Strange Ryan Reynolds Pairings

9 April 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With the new film Woman in Gold out this past weekend, it’s a wonder to think what factors casting agents take into account, especially when pairing a revered British actress with a (some would say) mediocre snarky comedic actor. Obviously Reynolds has lately been taking roles that require more dramatic skills than comedic ones. However, this trend of pairing Reynolds with actors above (or below) his caliber has been a thing for a while. Sure it’s something that’s done all the time with other actors, but this specific casting choice of Mirren/Reynolds sticks out in particular. So why not look at some past odd Ryan Reynolds’ pairings to see if this trend is a good or bad thing.

The age difference isn’t the only weird element about this “romantic” duo. Given Kristen Stewart’s general awkwardness and Ryan Reynolds’ typical charm mixed with smarm, »

8 April 2015 7:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Keeping Up With the Joneses’ already-hilarious cast has just gotten a whole lot funnier. Word has it Matt Walsh and Maribeth Monroe have just joined the upcoming 2016 Greg Mottola-helmed comedy.

Keeping Up With the Joneses follows a suburban couple who become suspicious of their new extremely attractive neighbors, who they later discover to be undercover agents. According to THR, Monroe and Walsh will play one of the couples already living in the neighborhood.

Walsh and Monroe join a comically charged cast including Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher and Gal Gadot. Both actors, who already have strong comedy backgrounds, will be sure to bring a nice dynamic to the set as a neighboring couple. Monroe has worked on shows ranging from Key and Peele to Modern Family, Robot Chicken to Workaholics while Walsh has worked on films like The Hangover & Hits and shows like Upright Citizens Brigade, Reno 911! and most recently HBO’s Veep. »

Kristen Stewart To Star In New Woody Allen Project

10 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

She’s been garnering critics’ praise, becoming the first American actress to win the Cesar Award for her role in Clouds Of Sils Maria. And now it seems Kristen Stewart’s credibility with Europeans is going to skyrocket, thanks to the news she’s been cast in metropolitan master Woody Allen’s next film.

The untitled entry reunites her with Adventureland co-star Jesse Eisenberg, and also sees Bruce Willis in the mix. Eisenberg worked for Allen on To Rome With Love, but Stewart and Willis are new to his neurotic universe. The director’s team are notoriously tight-lipped, so the script could be a comedy or a drama. The way Allen flits about in time also means the cast could end up in anything from period dress to Tommy Hilfiger.

Allen is perhaps a little busier than usual. Not only is his latest Irrational Man (starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone) imminent, »
