American Ultra is a Weed-Filled Bourne Identity
... and I already love it.

From what I can gather from the trailer, the plot is exactly the same as The Bourne Identity. Except Mike (Jesse Eisenberg), our hero, is a pot-head.
That alone makes me want to watch the movie but here's why you should. We, the American audience, constantly get these huge summer blockbuster action movies. We constantly see giant, muscular, alpha-male men.
But not this summer! We get Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, arguably two of the most awkward people I've ever seen on the screen.
It subverts the idea of what an "action hero" is supposed to be. And I'm glad I can finally see an action movie where the protagonist reminds me a little bit of me.
(even though I've NEVER smoked that stuff in my life, mom)
American Ultra comes out on August 21st, 2015.

I appreciate Kristen Stewart accepting 'stoner' as part of her personal brand. Also, this movie looks NOTHING like the plot I was expecting based on this poster. This looks WILD.
