Rupert Friend on what intrigued him about his character: "I was intrigued by the idea of someone who's accused of having had their emotions genetically removed so yeah the idea of someone who on the surface seems to be indestructible and a complete killing machine, in fact is not a machine or any kind of robot, droid, cyborg or anything, he's a human being, he bleeds and feels, he's just very very good at hiding it."
Zachary Quinto on his character, John: "I play a character called John Smith who exists in the world of the video game but form my understanding in a relatively peripheral capacity, he intercepts Katia, played by Hannah Ware, at a crucial moment in her journey and then there's a sort of triangulation betwen John Smith, Katia and Agent 47 and that lasts for the rest of the film."
Hannah Ware on her character, Katia's quest: "On this quest in Berlin, staying at the youth hotel it's pretty obvious from the start that she's not quite the same as her peers, not interested in doing the same things, sort of going to concert, socializing, being like a normal 23 year old girl (unintelligible), she's on this very specific quest to find this nameless man who she remembers in some way."
Opening today (Friday August 21st) is the new comedy, American Ultra, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Topher Grace, Tony Hale, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman, Walton Goggins and Connie Britton.

American Ultra is rated R and has a running time of 1 hour and 36 minutes.

Jesse Eiseneberg on the story: "So the movie is about this young couple who seem like they're kind of on track to be -- you know to become engaged and then just as things seem to be going well for them, my character Mike becomes like the target of this evil government plot to wipe him out and then he discovers that he's actually been trained and brainwashed by the CIA."
Kristen Stewart on what the film has to offer: "This is sort of trying to be and fully succeeding I think at being several different types of movies, it's like a very very ultra violent in your face action movie that takes itself really seriously and is emotionally grounded and the characters are whole and there's a love story that is very real and then at the same time it's like a full on slap stick comedy."
Topher Grace on having fun making the movie: "Everyone was so committed to the work, they take the work so seriously but not themselves and that's the recipe for -- your know Nema's like that as well -- it's a recipe for a great ensemble I think when everyone wants to work their hardest but isn't taking all the stuff off-screen (unintelligible) so I'm so thrilled to be part of it."
