‘American Ultra’: Hilarious Trailer

As this trailer starts out, Jesse is just a normal guy who works as a cashier at a minimart, and who is a pretty diligent pot smoker. However, as tends to happen in movies, everything changes in an instant.

A woman walks up to the counter and explains to Jesse that a mission has been initiated, following a security breach. “Is that a lyric from something?” he asks her.

As Jesse then the store for the evening, he sees two mysterious dudes screwing with his car. When he tells them to stop, they approach and, suddenly, he whips out the most insane ninja fighting skills and kills the guys. Clearly, he didn’t know he could do that.

Hi There, Topher Grace

He calls Kristen, panicked, to explain that he definitely just killed two people and she reasonably asks if he called the cops. “No I didn’t call the police because I have a lot of like weed and mushrooms in my car,” he says.

And from here, we see the adventure begin. Oh, and as if the movie didn’t look amazing enough, Topher Grace is also a star so, yeah, is it August yet?
