"It was the worst job they had ever imagined... and the best time of their lives."

From Greg Mottola, the director of SUPERBAD, and starring Jesse Eisenberg (THE SQUID AND THE WHALE), Kristen Stewart (TWILIGHT), Ryan Reynolds (JUST FRIENDS, VAN WILDER), Martin Starr (KNOCKED UP, SUPERBAD), Kristen Wiig (KNOCKED UP) and Bill Hader (SUPERBAD, TROPIC THUNDER), ADVENTURELAND is a hilarious coming-of-age comedy.

It's the summer of '87 and for recent college grad James Brennan (Jesse Eisenberg), life after college isn't exactly what he expected. Realising he can't afford the dream European tour when his parents (Wendie Malick and Jack Gilpin) announce they can no longer subsidise the trip, he's been planning, he's forced to take a dead-end job at a local amusement park.

Forget about German beer, world-famous museums and cute European girls, ADVENTURELAND promises to be the stage for the most painful summer of his life. However, as he meets new friends, falls in love with his captivating co-worker Em (Kristen Stewart), and learns to loosen up, he realises that the worst job ever may just turn out to be the best time of his life.
