Stoner and convenient store clerk Mike Howell (played by Jesse Eisenberg) is just about to take the plunge and propose to his girlfriend Phoebe (played by Kristen Stewart) when his past abruptly comes back to haunt him in Nima Nourizadeh’s American Ultra. Howell is a once government-trained killer who has now put the life of his lover in danger as the authorities have come to take him out by any means necessary. The easiest way to Mike ends up being through Phoebe, as she finds herself kidnapped, and her boyfriend must come to the rescue.
See below for the trailer to American Ultra, which is expected to land in theaters this summer.
