Kristen Stewart And Jesse Eisenberg In First American Ultra Posters (PHOTOS)
Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg play stoner lovers in their upcoming movie American Ultra, and on Thursday the first movie posters featuring the duo were released (see below). In the film, Eisenberg plays Mike, who is desperately trying to propose to his girlfriend Phoebe, played by Stewart, but nothing is going as planned. After trying to take Phoebe out on the town to pop the question to her, Mike begins to have panic attacks. He also realizes that he’s a sleeper agent, and the government is trying to kill him.
“He’s got this life that seems pretty kind of lame to most people,” says director Nima Nourizadeh in an interview with MTV, adding, “He doesn’t have a lot of responsibilities in life. He’s just been going out with this girl Phoebe. His main motivation in the movie, really right now at the beginning anyways, is to propose to her. He’s in love with her. That’s his life, He wants to propose to her.”
Nourizadeh also talks about Stewart’s role in the film, saying she plays a character unlike anything she’s ever done before. “I think she’s funny,” offers the director, who furtherer notes, “There’s stuff that when you watch the movie, you go, ‘Ah, that’s a good one. I’ve never seen her like that!'”
Even though American Ultra has a crazy action-packed plot, Nourizadeh promises that it’s also “a sweet love story” between Stewart and Eisenberg’s characters. Check out the first posters below of Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg in American Ultra, and tell us what you think.
