"Limitless" is an paranoia-fueled action thriller starring Bradley Cooper and Robert Deniro. The film tells the story of an unsuccessful writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret "smart drug" that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life in this suspenseful and provocative film.

Aspiring author Eddie Morra (Cooper) is suffering from chronic writer's block, but his life changes instantly when an old friend introduces him to NZT, a revolutionary new pharmaceutical that allows him to tap into his full potential. With every synapse crackling, Eddie can recall everything he has ever read, seen or heard, learn any language in a day, comprehend complex equations and beguile anyone he meets, so long as he keeps taking the untested drug.

Soon Eddie takes Wall Street by storm, parlaying a small stake into millions. His accomplishments catch the eye of mega-mogul Carl Van Loon (De Niro), who invites him to help broker the largest merger in corporate history. But this also brings Eddie to the attention of people willing to do anything to get their hands on his stash of NZT. With his life in jeopardy and the drug's brutal side effects taking hold, Eddie dodges mysterious stalkers, a vicious gangster, and an intense police investigation as he attempts to hang on to his dwindling supply long enough to outwit his enemies.

The "Limitless" cast includes Bradley Cooper ("The Hangover," "The A-Team"), Oscar winner Robert De Niro ("Raging Bull," "Taxi Driver"), Abbie Cornish ("Bright Star"), Anna Friel ("You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger"), Andrew Howard ("Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"), Johnny Whitworth ("3:10 to Yuma") and Thomas Arana ("The Bourne Supremacy").
