What happens when you cast Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart together in a film about a dishevelled store clerk who is actually a sleeper agent and has awesome fighting skills? You get an action-packed comedy masterpiece called American Ultra (think Adventureland but with super spy action).

Directed by Nima Nourizadeh and written by Max Landis, American Ultra tells the story of Mike Howell, an ordinary guy waiting to propose to his girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen) until he is visited by Victoria Lasseter (Connie Britton) who unleashes the killer within him.

He is then attacked by agents sent by Adrian Yates (Topher Grace) and he goes on the run with Phoebe. However, Phoebe gets kidnapped and it's up to Mike to save her life. Unfortunately, American Ultra won't be coming to our screens. So here's another clip to make up for it!
