Think of the most unlikely action hero ever and the name Jesse Eisenberg might come up. Which is exactly why the red band trailer for American Ultra is so surprising. Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) and written by Max Landis (Chronicle), American Ultra is about a young man (Eisenberg) who wants to propose to his girlfriend (Kirsten Stewart) but is then revealed to be a sleeper agent, super spy. The main difference between him and other spies though is he’s a huge stoner, slacker.
Co-starring Topher Grace, Connie Britton, John Leguizamo and others, American Ultra opens August 21. Check out the first American Ultra trailers below.
UPDATE: We’ve added a green band trailer to go along with Thursdays red band. Read More »

However, Lionsgate insists the new release date doesn’t signal a lack of confidence, but an opportunity. “Great movies deliver whatever date they’re on,” said co-chairman Rob Friedman.

Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, and Ana de Armas star in Eli Roth‘s thriller Knock Knock, and this new trailer really starts to reveal details of what happens when the married architect played by Reeves succumbs to temptation when Izzo and de Armas show up at his doorstep one night. The two women seduce Reeves, who protests, but only a little, and some time later they return to teach him a lesson in personal responsibility.
Note that this Knock Knock trailer is not technically red-band, but it has enough heavily suggested sex and violence that you might want to hold off watching if you’re unsure. Read More »

The end of every path for a genre property seems to be the remake. Cube, the small sci-fi puzzler that launched the feature career of director Vincenzo Natali in 1997, has already been followed by a sequel and a prequel. Now it is getting a reboot. Lionsgate is setting up a Cube “re-imagining” from producers Roy Lee and Jon Spaihts, and relatively new filmmaker Saman Kesh is set to direct. The Cube reboot is currently called Cubed, because I guess Cubes would sound too much like a toy movie or a direct sequel. Read More »
