29 May 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

28 May 2015 2:28 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg take the D-Train back to Slackerville in a new red band trailer for their upcoming action-comedy “American Ultra.” They still possess the same old chemistry, but you gotta ask: What are they doing in a film like this? The Lionsgate film also stars Connie Britton, Topher Grace, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman, Walton Goggins and Tony Hale. Max Landis (“Chronicle”) wrote the script and Nima Nourizadeh (“Project X”) directed. ...Read More »

Watch: Jesse Eisenberg Kills for Kristen Stewart in ‘American Ultra’ Nsfw Trailer

28 May 2015 1:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate has released the first redband trailer for Jesse Eisenberg-Kristen Stewart’s action-comedy “American Ultra,” three months before its August 21 release.

The Nsfw trailer, replete with expletives and explosions, reveals that Eisenber’s stoner character is actually a secret agent who doesn’t realize he’s a secret agent until he becomes the target of a government operation to wipe him out.

“There’s nothing more dangerous than a stoned cold killer,” the trailer advises.

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. Stewart plays Eisenberg’s small-town girlfriend; Topher Grace and Connie Britton also star.

“Ultra” re-teams Stewart and Eisenberg six years after they starred in Greg Mottola’s “Adventureland.”

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.

Jesse Eisenberg is a stoner on a quest to save Kristen Stewart in American Ultra teaser

28 May 2015 12:14 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jesse Eisenberg is the world's most dangerous stoner in an explosion-filled trailer for American Ultra.

Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart star as a marijuana-loving couple whose sleepy existence is upended when Us government agents begin hunting them.

Long-haired hippy Mike Howell (Eisenberg) can't figure out why he suddenly has the know-how to expertly kill trained agents, but he puts those skills to use when he goes on the run with his girlfriend Phoebe Larson (Kristen Stewart).

Connie Britton and Topher Grace play the sinister government agents tracking Mike, while John Leguizamo is his over-the-top drug dealer Rose.

The Max Landis-written comedy is being brought to the big screen by Project X director Nima Nourizadeh.

Eisenberg and Stewart will reunite again this summer to shoot a new comedy from acclaimed filmmaker Woody Allen.

American Ultra opens on August 21 in the Us and August 28 in the UK. »

Jesse Eisenberg Smokes Weed & Some Guys in American Ultra [Trailer]

28 May 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

American Ultra is the weird stoner comedy action movie you didn't know you wanted to see. It's like Harold and Kumar crossed with Bourne and though it sounds like a disaster, it actually looks ridiculously fun.

Written by Max Landis (who previously impressed masses with Chronicle) and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (of Project X infamy), American Ultra stars the brilliantly cast Jesse Eisenberg as Mike, a stoner who also happens to be a sleeper operative for some government agency. Said agency tries to activate him but it doesn't work and the botched attempt does something to Mike and suddenly, he's tapping into skills he didn't know he had (and can't remember how he got). Now he and his girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart) find themselves on the run from the a [Continued ...] »

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.) »

Awesome American Ultra Trailer Reveals The Stoner’s Answer To Chuck

28 May 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I have seen the future of action-comedy… and its name is American Ultra. That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but there’s no getting past how smashing the first red-band trailer for the August pic really is. Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart as stoners caught up in a government operation to wipe out Eisenberg’s seemingly hapless cashier, the movie looks like the pothead’s answer to Chuck (one of my favorite series of all time), with Eisenberg’s protagonist realizing he has built-in training that makes him a lethal weapon given the right circumstances.

I put it on my list of must-see movies this summer, and after watching the trailer above, maybe you can understand why.

With Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) at the helm, we were always expecting something with a lot of energy, but American Ultra looks so much more insane than I had imagined »

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. »

Watch: Jesse Eisenberg And Kristen Stewart Go On In The Run In Red Band Trailer For 'American Ultra'

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

Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart seem to have a good thing going. They paired up in "Adventureland," and this summer they'll shoot Woody Allen's next feature, but for their next project together, the duo are going for genre thrills. The first trailer for "American Ultra" has arrived. Directed by "Project X" helmer Nima Nourizadeh, which already guarantees a certain level of energy, the movie follows stoner and equally chill girlfriend, who find their lives turned upside down when his past comes back to haunt him in the form of a government operation set to wipe him out. Yikes. So a stoner/action/comedy/thriller? Okay, we're intrigued. Too bad the title "Adventureland" was already taken... Co-starring Walton Goggins, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman, Topher Grace, and Tony Hale, the film opens on August 21st. Watch below. »

Project X Is Getting A Sequel With A Pretty Obvious Title

21 May 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In an unsurprising move, a sequel to 2012.s Project X has been ordered because of the fact that the original made a ton of money off a nothing budget. But rather than breaking the mold with the title for the follow-up, those involved simply decided to name it Project Xx. Which, while pretty obvious, suggests that the raunchy comedy will pick-up right where the original left off. The Wrap were the first to report that the Todd Phillips-produced sequel is currently in pre-production. At the moment though still not sure if either the film.s trifecta of stars (Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, and Jonathan Daniel Brown), its director Nima Nourizadeh, or its writing team of Matt Drake and Michael Bacall will return. However, the last details we had on the sequel suggested that Bacall had been asked to write a draft of the script. Project Xx has »

New release dates, including Ben Affleck in The Accountant

19 May 2015 10:23 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Project X sequel, and the new film from The Hangover's Todd Phillips, are also set to arrive in 2016...

Warner Bros has confirmed a collection of new release dates for some of its upcoming projects, Each of these thus far as an American date, but we expect the UK arrival in each case to be roughly around the same time.

First up, there's The Accountant, from Warrior director Gavin O'Connor. The film stars Ben Affleck, Jeffrey Tambor, Anna Kendrick and J K Simmons. It follows the story of a man who's an accountant most of the time, and an assassin the rest of it. And it's now due to arrive on January 22nd.

Then there's the new film from The Hangover director Todd Phillips. Entitled Arms & The Dudes, the new comedy stars Jonah Hill and Miles Teller as a pair of friends who decide to bid on Us military contracts during the Iraq war. »

Project Xx Gets A Release Date

19 May 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It's already three years since director Nima Nourizadeh put the tricks of the microbudget found-footage horror trade to use on the teen comedy genre and came up with Project X. Polarising as the finished product was, a sequel has been talked about ever since, and Warner Bros. have now announced Project Xx's release date, along with arrival times for The Accountant and Arms And The Dudes.Not much is yet known about the hard-partying follow-up, outside the fact that original co-writer Michael Bacall has been working on it solo this time. No director is yet attached, and it's unclear whether Todd Phillips will return as producer. And given the time elapsed and the cast's advanced age, it seems unlikely that any of the first gang will be back - unless we ditch the high-school angle and put them in college or something. Even then, we'll be amazed if they get Miles Teller back. »

Ben Affleck’s ‘The Accountant’ Set for Jan. 29

19 May 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has set a Jan. 29 release date for Ben Affleck’s thriller “The Accountant,” which will be his first film since “Gone Girl.”

Ben Affleck’s The Accountant, Project X Sequel and More Get Release Dates

19 May 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Warner Bros. made some release date announcements today, and in the process finally dated its Project X sequel. The studio will drop Project Xx on August 19, 2016, where it will open opposite Laika’s next animated feature Kubo and the Two Strings. WB first put the follow-up into development in 2012, fresh off a respectable opening weekend for the found footage party pic Project X, but it appears that it’s taken them a bit to get the thing off the ground. It’s unclear who will direct or if any of the cast will return (Thomas Mann led the pic, while Miles Teller had a supporting role), but if I had to guess I'd say it'll just be another found footage party movie with a new cast. It’ll be interesting to see how the follow-up performs four years after the original came out, especially considering the first film wasn't exactly a culture phenomenon. »
