Trailer Spotlight: American Ultra

AU1

Remember that sleepy little indie Adventureland? Did you ever wonder what happened after that film ended? Well maybe this is exactly what followed, as we get our first trailer for the upcoming American Ultra. The film stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, and our first glance makes this look like a cross between Dazed and Confused and The Bourne Identity. Eisenberg is heavy in everyone’s minds with his most recent casting as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman and Stewart just having done two successful, and surprisingly solid films in Still Alice and Clouds of Sils Maria is also a pleasure to see. the two had solid chemistry in their initial entanglement, and are hoping to duplicate it here.

Check out the Trailer!

Here is the synopsis:

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.

This definitely looks interesting. It has that Pineapple Express type flavor, and Stewart and Eisenberg have both been on hot streaks. Bro knows is cautiously optimistic about American Ultra. It has some potential and could end up being a cult hit. The trailer is entertaining and this could end up being a nice genre mashup. Then you throw in John Liguizamo, Topher Grace and Connie Britton and you have yourself a nice cast with a wholly cooky premise that just might work.
