Another new poster for American Ultra has been released, you can check it out below. There is also a new trailer for the movie.
Kristen is on the cover of Marie Claire’s August edition, looking absolutely stunning. We also have a behind the scenes look at the photoshoot.
It is a humid dusk in midtown Atlanta, and Kristen Stewart is perched on a too-tall bar stool at Saltwood Charcuterie & Bar in the Loews Hotel, her petite legs swinging free as she talks about girl prison. Not a literal Orange Is the New Black penitentiary—more the psychological and social incarceration all women feel at various points in their lives, when we are expected to smile, please, endure, accept, be grateful, acquiesce, apologize, bend over, be happy. Stewart, 25, knows all about girl prison: how a woman can be punished for not falling in line, for not reflecting what the culture deems she should, for not being, “I believe the operative words are, accessible, easy, and uncomplicated,” she says with an exaggerated roll of her eyes.
Stewart, in town filming Ang Lee’s military drama Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, is not, and has never been, any of those things. She spent years being taken to task for striking doleful poses on the red carpet, or not shining in talk-show settings, or daring to have desires beyond those the public prescribed to her because they believed they had the right to shape her persona since she was a young girl in a series of blockbuster films based on best-selling books. Finally, she decided to embrace the rebel labels thrown her way and say, “Fuck it all!”
Hitfix – Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg are a couple in love — and possibly death.
I’m on the set of “American Ultra,” the Max Landis-scripted, Nima Nourizadeh-directed comedic action film that stars Stewart and Eisenberg as Phoebe and Mike, a slacker couple being pursued by heavily-armed contract killers. The reason? Mike is in fact a highly-trained government agent (with amnesia!) who’s been marked as a “liability” and targeted for assassination.
We get to see some of the action go down on the film’s New Orleans set, a warehouse that’s been partially converted into a small-town grocery store. When we arrive they’re in the midst of shooting a fight scene that sees Mike engaging in brutal, bloody battle with a number of enemies through aisles labeled “Fresh Produce,” “Electronics,” “Chips” and “Cleaning Products.” In one corner of the warehouse, a giant green screen has been set up that in post will be replaced with the visual of a Humvee driven through the front of the store.
When we first arrive, Eisenberg — his face painted with cuts and bruises — is speaking into an intercom phone while crouched behind one of the checkstands at the front of the store.
