Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) and Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga) star as two slackers-turned-secret weapons in the action-comedy American Ultra arriving on Digital HD November 10, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and On Demand November 24 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The knockout adventure from the director of the hit comedy Project X also stars Topher Grace (TV’s “That 70’s Show”), Connie Britton (TV’s “Nashville”), Walton Goggins (TV’s “Justified”), John Leguizamo (John Wick), Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Tony Hale (HBO’s “VEEP”). Mike (Eisenberg) shares a small-town life with his girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart).

Mike, the ultimate slacker, transforms into an ultra-attacker as he and Phoebe fight to survive in this exhilarating adventure.
