Jesse Eisenberg & Kristen Stewart are both smoking in the all new ‘American Ultra’ posters which were released today on MTV.

There hasn’t been a lot of information about the film as yet as we are still awaiting the American Ultra trailer to be released, however speaking to MTV Director Nima Nourizadeh spoke about the characters Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) and Phoebe (Kristen Stewart) saying,


“American Ultra” is a genre buster, crossing conventions left and right. There’s action, adventure, comedy and love.

“You start with this kind of like sweet love story,” Nourizadeh said. “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. Really if you look at it, the action that comes into play is basically the stuff that’s softening it. It’s like the hurdles that you have to like overcome.


“His world just gets turned upside down and he starts to realize who he actually is. 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, well-rounded, totally unique movie, I think where you know you’ll be laughing one minute, you’ll be hopefully quite shocked at some of the action that we did. It’s violent, it’s graphic, it’s funny, it’s silly at times, you know it’s just got so many things going on that its hard to actually define really.”

“American Ultra” hits cinemas August 21.
