Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in American Ultra

Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in American Ultra

Jesse Eisenberg (The End of the Tour) and Kristen Stewart (Still Alice) star as two slackers-turned-secret weapons in the action-comedy American Ultra. The film reunites the two stars who first appeared opposite each other in 2007’s Adventureland.

Mike (Eisenberg) shares a small-town life with his girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart). But Mike’s sleepy world goes wild after he discovers that he’s actually a CIA sleeper agent with lethal fighting skills—and the target of government hitmen. Mike, the ultimate slacker, transforms into an ultra-attacker as he and Phoebe fight to survive…!

American Ultra Blu-ray boxDirected by Nima Mourizadeh (Project X), American Ultra also stars Topher Grace (Take Me Home Tonight), Connie Britton (This Is Where I Leave You), Walton Goggins (TV’s Justified), John Leguizamo (John Wick), Bill Pullman (The Killer Inside Me) and Tony Hale  (TV’s VEEP).

American Ultra enjoyed a limited theatrical release to theaters in the U.S., garnering a so-so 44% positive rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 141 published reviews and ringing up a disappointing $14.4 million at the domestic box office.

Armed with a stockpile of extras, the American Ultra home entertainment release includes a behind-the-scenes documentary, a look at the unique weapons used in the film, gag reel, and audio commentary with the director.
