Working in a convenience store, he doesn't have a ton of life goals, but is madly in love with girlfriend Phoebe Larson (Kristen Stewart). But just before he can propose to her, a task friend Rose (John Leguizamo) helps him with, his life is flipped upside down.

After a visit to his store by Victoria Lasseter (Connie Britton), Mike finds men messing with his car and finds that he has skills to kill those men with nothing more than a spoon. Frightened and confused, Mike later learns that he is a trained asset who just killed two CIA agents and is now seen as a rouge threat who must be eliminated. But can one stoner and his girlfriend keep themselves safe against an army of trained agents? Good question.

Topher Grace, Walton Goggins, Bill Pullman and Tony Hale all co-star in American Ultra which opens alongside other films such as Straight Outta Compton, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Fantastic Four, and Ricki and the Flash.
