If you’ve ever thought the Jason Bourne franchise could do with a dose of narcotics to spice up the action, American Ultra is here to answer your call. The film stars Jesse Eisenberg as your average American stoner and store clerk Mike Howell who is about to propose to his girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart), when a shadowy government operation activates the sleeper agent inside of him. From there on out, the film spirals into a procession of spectacular kills, explosions and stoner jokes, as Mike and Phoebe battle the odds against forces larger than either of them could ever imagine. Watch the trailer above and look for the movie to hit theaters on August 21.
