Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart star in what might be a better feature length version of the premise to NBC’s Chuck in the upcoming stoner action comedy, American Ultra.
Watch Eisenberg recall the part where he stops running in Zombieland (along with the font from Zombieland) and takes on various covert operatives as a deep secret covert operative himself while also trying to come down from being high.
As far as stoner/slacker action comedy goes, it seems slightly more grounded and realistic than Chuck or even Pineapple Express. Yet, it still enjoys the fun of some of the most unrealistic bullet physics since Wanted. Connie Britton and Topher Grace also seem like they’ll make memorable cameos as comedic versions of David Strathairn and Joan Allen in The Bourne Ultimatum.
See all of this for yourself in this red band trailer.
