Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart have indulged in a number of really serious projects for much of their careers, but they seem to set all of that aside and just have fun when together. That was clearly the case for Adventureland a few years ago, and the upcoming stoner action-comedy American Ultra has the pair once again on a high.
Directed byNima Nourizadeh (Project X) and penned by Max Landis (Chronicle), the film centers on a stoner couple forced to go on the run when he is revealed to be a government sleeper agent. The latest trailer keeps up the energy seen in prior footage, which is a little like if Pineapple Express was crossed with a Bourne movie.
American Ultra hits theaters on August 21st. For more of Stewart and Eisenberg goofing off, check out their stoner interview for MTV, as well.
