Watch: Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart Light Up New ‘American Ultra’ Trailer

Lionsgate has released the final trailer for the Jesse Eisenberg-Kristen Stewart starrer “American Ultra” a month before its Aug. 21 release.

The action-comedy’s trailer, replete with expletives and gun play, reveals that Eisenberg’s stoner character is actually a highly trained secret agent who doesn’t realize he’s a secret agent until he becomes the target of a government operation to wipe him out.

He’s set into motion by a CIA operative calling him “Cherry Progressive” at a convenience store, followed by his killing two operatives with a spoon. “I have a lot of anxiety about this,” he tells his girlfriend, portrayed by Stewart.

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. Topher Grace and Connie Britton also star.

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