Big Film Design is proud to have produced the title sequences for Lionsgate’s American Ultra, opening nationwide this Friday, August 21. The film was directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) and stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. BFD collaborated with animator Gary Leib to create an end title sequence that takes the viewer into the mind of main character and would-be-graphic-novelist Mike.
American Ultra is a fast-paced action comedy about Mike (Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Stewart), is suddenly turned upside down. Unbeknownst to him, Mike is actually a highly trained, lethal sleeper agent. In the blink of an eye, as his secret past comes back to haunt him, Mike is thrust into the middle of a deadly government operation and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.
We hope you’ll go enjoy this wacky blend of stoner comedy and riveting action.
“The most creative and witty part of the entire film may well be the animated end credits, which have a bracing panache.”
– Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
“A bloody valentine attached to a bomb. It’s violent, brash, inventive and horrific, and perhaps the most romantic film of the year”.
– Amy Nicholson, L.A. Weekly
