LOS ANGELES: Downtown
The advertisements claims American Ultra to be the love child between Pineapple Express and Jason Bourne movies. To that end, we can say it is definitely a comedy action. Nevertheless, downtown Los Angeles became the backdrop for this Hollywood red carpet movie premiere. Who was there? Cast members Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, John Leguizamo, Topher Grace and others. Action comedies can be a good investment for Hollywood. Box office numbers will be the jury on its success.
“Small-town stoner Mike Howell (Jesse Eisenberg) spends most of his time getting high and writing a graphic novel about a superhero monkey. What Mike doesn’t know is that he was trained by the CIA to be a lethal killing machine. When the agency targets him for termination, his former handler activates his latent skills, turning the mild-mannered slacker into a deadly weapon. Now, the utterly surprised Mike must use his newfound abilities to save himself and his girlfriend from getting wasted.“
