I’ve never seen the appeal of having secret sleeper agent assassins in your employ. Because no matter how damn good their mental cover is, you’re always going to find yourself wanting to kill them, for reasons. And that’s a Hollywood science fact.
It’s a trope that Jesse Eisenberg has to deal with in American Ultra, as he finds himself being hunted down by your typical assortment of black ops agents who want him dead. But they done messed with the wrong stoner….maaaaaaaaaan. Here’s a new trailer for director Nima Nourizadeh’s upcoming action comedy American Ultra, which was written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis:
A stoner and his girlfriend’s 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.
The Manchurian Candidate. Now no longer just the name of a rather funky batch of skunk. American Ultra also stars Kristen Stewart, Topher Grace, Walton Goggins, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman, and Tony Hale. It’s out in the US on August 21
